His Country music career has spanned over 50 years, and in 2016 he released his 33rd studio album, “Real Country Music”. He has six number one hits, and 23 in the top 10.
But the road to success wasn’t always easy for Gene Watson. In the 1960’s he performed at local clubs at night, and worked in a Houston auto body shop during the day to make ends meet.
When Capital Records released his LP, “Love in the Hot Afternoon”, in 1974, the title track went to number three. Since then, Gene Watson has never looked back.
