Gene Watson fans..... This is a great collection!! Gene's voice had not changed much over the years; he still belts out a good ballad! I do not think you will be disappointed with this purchase.

This is what TRUE COUNTRY MUSIC sounds like!!! There are so few REAL country singers left. I am so sick of most of the current country acts currently out there! I know there are a lot of young people who wouldn't agree....BUT I know there are a lot of true country fans who will agree!!

As a 40+ fan of Gene Watson's but a lifetime lover of classic/traditional country music, I can honestly say this CD brings back so many memories of listening to the Grand Ole Opry around the radio on Saturday nights when I was growing up. My favorite track is "Count Me Out" the Jeanne Pruett penned/Marty Robbins hit from the mid 60's. My second favorite, and one I play every morning on my way to work, is the upbeat Buck Owens "Hello Trouble". I can understand so many people saying their favorite is the Merle Haggard penned/recorded song "I Forget You Everyday" and I like it, too, but the others take me back in time to a really happy place and just put a smile on my face. Everyone who hears this CD just raves about it. You absolutely cannot go wrong buying this CD!

I saw Gene in concert last Saturday night and he said he wanted to do this CD to honor some of his country music heroes. It's a great collection of songs and sung beautifully by Gene. I particularly like his versions of "Count Me Out" and Dottie West's "Here Comes My Baby Back Again".

Gene's voice continues to be the best I have followed him since the 70's, one year I saw him 22 times. He just keeps getting better.

Gene is soooo smooth and so convincing in delivering superior music-quality. This album is a must if you love traditional country music. While a cover of his "hero" oldies, Gene does them in his own special way. In taking some liberties with certain melodic lines and the lyric, many of these renditions are better than the original!

Dirk Johnson deserves special kudos on this album, as well. As producer, arranger, and pianist, (yeah, he's more than just a "piano-player") he is excellent, and this album reflects his skills & abilities, too! He and the other sidemen really make for GREAT music!

I heard Gene's band perform in Saratoga, WY in 2002-2003(?) and even outdoors, on a flat-bed trailer, he knocked-their-lights-out! (Mine, too!) Even in the intimacy of Larry's Country Diner recently (RFD-TV) he captivates like no other. A true artist and "shaper" of the vocal line....

Great album, Gene, and other contributors! Keep SINGING, Gene... We love it! .... Go BUY THIS ALBUM, America! You will NOT be disappointed... Every tune is a "keeper."

P.S. Amazon PRIME makes it really easy to get your stuff QUICK!

I have wondered when Gene would add his style to some of these classics. Here it is! No one does it like he does.
