Gene Watson is recognized as one of the leading voices of “real country” music, often called traditional or classic country. Fans of Merle Haggard and George Jones will not want to miss this concert. It was George Jones who stated “Gene Watson is one of my all-time favorite singers!” When asked who his favorite country singer is Ray Price commented “I have too many to name, but Gene Watson would be right around the top of the list.”

Native Texan, GENE WATSON has 6 #1 Country Hits, 23 Top Tens and over 75 charted songs. Watson was inducted into the inaugural class for the Houston Texas Music Hall of Fame and is a proud member of the Texas State Country Music Hall of Fame.

In 2017, Gene was awarded the title of “Entertainer of the Year” by his peers as members of the R.O.P.E. Awards voted and presented him the title on October 5th.
Watson is releasing his 34th studio album December 8th, a Country Gospel album titled “My Gospel Roots”. The project will be distributed by New Day Christian Distributors. A single, “Old Roman Soldier” has been released to radio as a follow up to his #1 Gospel hit last year, “Help Me”.

Critics revere Gene Watson : USA Today states “Gene Watson is one of Country’s finest and most underrated singers.” Associated Press states “He’s never sounded better, which is saying something.” CMT comments: “What can you say about the most burnished and sensitive male voice on the planet except ‘Listen’?”


The Western Flyers are one of the most exciting new bands to glide onto the music scene in years. Their music is a distinctive cross section of the Great American Songbook: authentic Western swing, hot jazz and swing standards, cowboy songs and electrifying old-time fiddle tunes.

Internationally renowned guitar master Joey McKenzie drives the train with his powerful rhythm, while reigning National Swing Fiddle champion Katie Glassman and world-class upright bassist Gavin Kelso add fuel to the fire. A blending of tradition and innovation, The Western Flyers are a singular musical experience; a fresh take on a venerable American art form performed by three virtuosos of the genre. With international tours under their belt and debut album reaching #1 on the FAR / American roots charts, they are a band in full swing.
