One of the most masterful voices in country music today, Gene Watson still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and continues to prove why he is rightly referred to as “The Singer’s Singer”. His powerful voice and multi-octave range allow him to sing some of the most challenging songs with an ease that comes from pure, natural talent as well as from his many years performing onstage. On his most recent album release, Real.Country.Music., the 72 year- old Watson once again proves he’s the master of classic country music. He remains defiantly country in the face of today’s more pop-oriented offerings, and is proud that his legions of fans rely on him to keep traditional country music alive and well. He is most famous for his 1975 hit "Love in the Hot Afternoon," his 1981 #1 hit "Fourteen Carat Mind," and his signature 1979 song "Farewell Party." Watson's long career has notched five #1 hits, 23 Top-10, and over 76 charted singles.
The performance starts at 7:30 p.m.; box office opens at 6:30 p.m. Advance ticket purchase recommended.
