Gene Watson, Penny Gilley and The Farewell Party Band
The Texas Opry Theater, 315 York Ave., Weatherford, TX 76086. High energy, power packed and real country with flash! That’s Penny Gilley! See Penny with Gene Watson and on The Penny Gilley Show on RDTV. The Texas born and bred legend did not know what the future held in 1962, but he does now. His ageless voice sounds exactly as it did when he first recorded in the 1970s and 1980s. Performances such as “Fourteen Carat Mind,” “Love in the Hot Afternoon,” “Farewell Party,” “Memories to Burn,” “Got No Reason Now for Going Home,” “Speak Softly,” “Paper Rosie” and “Sometimes I Get Lucky and Forget” have forged Gene Watson’s reputation as a “Singer’s Singer.” Gene, himself, views his remarkable vocal talent as a matter of course. All seven Watson children sang, as did his parents. “I can remember singing as far back as I can remember talking. Singing was something that was not out of the ordinary for me. It wasn’t unique. My whole family were singers.” Even in a musical genre noted for its hard-luck stories, Gene Watson’s stands out.
