Gene Watson's roots lie in the Paris area, spending some of his formative years in the vicinity. He went on to score major success with hits in the 1960's and 70's, and remains a towering figure in country music.
Watson shows no signs of slowing down, still recording and touring at 72 years old. He makes a local stop December 1st in Greenville, and spoke with Notably Texan the day prior.
More about Gene is available at his website.
Listen to Notably Texan, weekdays from 11am-2pm on KETR.
