Gene Watson cd, My Heros Have Always Been Country. Release date June, 10, 2014.
“I recorded these songs to honor my music heroes and pay homage to the artists and the songs that shaped my career. There’s not a lot of classic country played on Top 40 radio but there’s still a huge fan base for this kind of music”, says Gene Watson. “I wanted to give tribute to our country music history by covering songs that made a big impact on me growing up and as a young artist. Many of these songs are super hits by the biggest names in country music but a few songs are a bit more eclectic and I hope fans will ‘discover’ these gems that were sung by some of their favorite classic country artists.”
