EARLY LIFE

Country singer Gene Watson grew up in a small town in Texas and always loved music though he did not think it was originally something he could make a career out of.  Watson worked in an auto-repair shop and eventually began playing music music in small music bars. He moved to Houston and formed the band Gene Watson & The Other Four and eventually earned himself a record deal.

MUSIC CAREER

Watson began to be known as a household name during the 1970s. Though his first band gained some success in Houston, he ultimately decided to pursue a solo career and expand his own fan-base. One of his first successful singles, “Paper Rosie” put his name on the map and earned a place as #3 on the charts. Watson continued to produce albums from the 70’s through today, earning top 10 hits throughout the 80’s. Today, he is best known for his songs “I Don’t Need A Thing At All”, “Pick The Wildwood Flower”, and “Love In The Hot Afternoon”.
