It’s been over 50 years since Gene Watson began his professional career in 1962 by recording his first single.
Reflecting on that first recording as a 19-year-old, he said, “I didn’t know what I was doing. I think maybe I was dreaming a little bit. Who knows what’s going through your mind back then? I was playing nightclubs here and there and decided it might be good if I could record a song…. I wrote the record, ‘If It Was That Easy.’ It was not any good, but, boy, I thought that was something. I had my own record.”
