Hometown: NASHVILLE, Tennessee, US
Gary Gene Watson (born October 11, 1943) is an American country singer. He is most famous for his 1975 hit “Love in the Hot Afternoon,” his 1982 hit “Fourteen Carat Mind” and his signature song, “Farewell Party.” Watson’s long career has notched 6 Number Ones, 22 Top Tens and 50 charted singles.
In September 2007 “In A Perfect World” was released to great critical acclaim. The album was received by the Country Music industry as being one of the best recordings of the year. The Associated Press noted “Like a well-aged whiskey, Gene Watson has gained smoothness yet maintained his visceral bite…Watson can make contemporary songs sound like timeless classics. He’s never sounded better, which is saying something.” The Philadelphia Inquirer stated ‘In A Perfect World’ is a stunning reminder of why the Texan is considered one of country’s all time great balladeers.""
In 2009, Gene Watson opened for Brad Paisley on his “Paisley Party” tour in Memphis, TN and released A Taste of the Truth featuring Alison Krauss, Trace Adkins and Bluegrass queen, Rhonda Vincent. A continuation of his trademark traditional Country sound, critics hailed the album as a landmark for the veteran artist. Paul Dennis of the 9513.com website praised it as “Album of the Decade.”
