It was a sold-out weekend of shows in Newberry, SC, and Clintwood, VA and we enjoyed the fans at each show.
At the Clintwood, VA show, I was surprised to receive the beautiful plaque (photo below) as a gift from Nathan Stanley, grandson of the late Ralph Stanley. The plaque was in honor of my 60 years in Country Music and was presented to me by Mr. Danny Lambert, Mayor of Clintwood. Nathan also gave me a beautiful crystal microphone and the inscription reads: To: Gene Watson, The Singer’s Singer- You are the greatest!
I certainly wasn’t expecting anything like this but I want to give a big thank you to Mayor Danny Lambert and to my friend, Nathan Stanley, for this honor. I’m truly grateful for the friendship and for the wonderful gifts.
