Hi Friends- Had a great time in Nashville this week recording a new Gospel version of the Country Family Reunion shows. Not sure when that comes out but I’m sure someone will let us know. As you can imagine, there were some beautiful music and emotional moments as different ones gave testimony. Rhonda Vincent knocked it out of the park with “The Old Rugged Cross” and I did “Before The Hammer Could Ring” from my Gospel album. I’ll tell you who you don’t want to miss is Jimmy Fortune singing “How Great Thou Art”. There’s just nothing I can say that will describe it but trust me that the Spirit shone through. Left Nashville and headed toward Missouri for the weekend shows and what a change in the weather this week! Hit Memphis and it had dropped 20 degrees. Looking forward to seeing you in Dixon, MO and Eureka Springs. AR this weekend. I recall last time we were in Eureka Springs it was sizzlin’ hot but hope some of this cooler weather will be there on Saturday. Take care and enjoy the fall weather, Gene
Between Rhonda Vincent and my management, they know how to work a man. Rhonda and I started Sunday afternoon taping her WSM radio show which will air Thursday, May 26th at 2PM central. Hope you’ll listen in at www.wsmonline.com. We had rehearsals later that night and Monday we shot a video for our duet “Gone for Good” (a great song written by our mutual friend, 45RPMer Jimmy Melton. Tuesday was an all day TV taping for a Hee Haw reunion which will be on RFD-TV. Just a huge time there. Everyone looks great and still some of the funniest one liners flying you ever heard. Of course Rhonda and I were on the Opry Tuesday night and debuted some of our duets. Rhonda is such a pro, it’s easy to sing with her but I was still nervous hoping I wouldn’t step on her lines! Today I’ve been taping another Country Family Reunion show and catching up there with old friends. Talked to Con Hunley (great singer), Linda Davis , Daily & Vincent and of course my good friend, Moe Bandy and more. Doing a photo shoot and then recording on Thursday before heading back for some rest and relaxation this weekend. They say what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger so I guess after this week, I should be in great shape for CMA Music Festival week! Speaking of that ,we are really going to have some fun. If you are anywhere near Nashville be sure to come to some of the events we have listed here and also at the site : www.GeneAndRhonda.net You can order the CD from that site as well. I’ll have the new Duets CD up on this site very soon also. Just as soon as I know when the video will air, I’ll post it here and on Facebook and the new ProBoard . Have you checked that out yet? Raymond Glenn and Sally Bedow created it and you can get on that and find out all sorts of stuff. They know more about me than I can remember. http://genewatsonfans.proboards.com Well folks, there is still more I need to do on my “To Do” list for this week so must get going but I do want to say I’ve been very concerned for our friends and fans in all the states so heavily damaged by the tornadoes here . I know you are keeping them in your thoughts and prayers as I am. Take care , Gene
