February Off to a great start!

Hi Friends  - Not sure where to start –  so much has been going on with the February 14th release of my new Best of the Best , 25 Greatest Hits album coming up.  I know some of you  received an early copy through the pre-sales signup.  I appreciate all the great comments.   I was up in Nashville January 29th and 30th for two special shows. The 29th was a radio show for WRLT and the 30th was an invitation only show for Sirius XM subscribers.  Sirius XM did a wonderful interview asking some questions that made me think back to the very beginning of my career.  Fifty years is a long time but it was fun talking to Wade Jessen , the Sirrius XM host. Wade goes back a ways with me and he’s got a mind like a steel trap. He probably remembers more on me than I ever knew. Many thanks to Chip Bricker and my Farewell Party Band and to the Sirius XM staff for all they did: John Marks, Kyle Cantrell, Joyce Rizer and Jonathon Burtner . Just received all the information in this press piece so here are the details for this special show:

Gene Watson celebrates the release of his new career-spanning collection Best of the Best: 25 Greatest Hits with an extensive three-hour conversation with Wade Jessen, as well as an exclusive performance for a live audience at the SiriusXM Music City Theatre in Nashville. All on WILLIE’s ROADHOUSE  SIRIUS XM 56

On-Air Time: Friday, February 10 12 pm ET      

Rebroadcasts: Saturday, February 11 8 am ET; Sunday, February 12 2 pm ET; Tuesday, February 14 8 pm ET; Thursday, February 16 9 am ET.

Came back to Nashville a week later to tape a Larry’s Country Diner show for RFD-TV.  I’m not sure on that air date but I’ll keep you posted.  At that taping I ran into Mark Chesnutt, one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and a truly good friend of mine.  It was great to have a visit with him. Anytime he’s in your area be  sure to go out and see his show. He is a great entertainer and of course one of the finest voices in country music.

Thanks to all of your for your kind words this week and for your support.  You are the best,  Gene
