Country legend Gene Watson continues to stay true to his traditional country style with the release of his new record, My Gospel Roots, coming December 8.
Over the years, Gene has proven that he is one of the great traditional country artists of our time. The new 13-track record brings the pure, organic country sound that he’s famous for to gospel songs that he grew up with. He’s dedicating the album to his parents, Ted and Thelma Watson, for sharing their love for gospel music with him. He said this album “really goes back to my roots of being in that little church and singin’ hymns. We had nothing but love, family and prayer back then, so I wanted to honor those traditions with this album.”
Gene includes songs from all different generations on his new record, and proves that he hasn’t lost a note in his incredible multi-octave range. “The Singer’s Singer” also shows no sign of slowing down his touring schedule. If you catch a show, you can expect to hear his classic hits like “Love in the Hot Afternoon,” “Farewell Party”and “Fourteen Carat Mind,” alongside the new gospel songs.
