My name is Sean Brady & I'm the webmaster of a site which is dedicated to Gene Watson. Within the website, there is a page dedicated to Gene's peers within the country music industry.
The purpose of this posting is to make an enquiry as to whether Vince Gill would be interested in providing such a quote about Gene Watson that I may use within my website salute to him. I consider Vince to be a vital member of the country music community, so I would therefore deem it an honour if he would consider such a request.
Please note that my Gene Watson website, which is based in Ireland, is an unofficial one. The site, which has been online since Friday 1st October 2004, is presented simply as a means of honouring Gene, his life & his contribution to country music.
I have received an email from Allen Whitcomb (Gene's manager) & there is a strong possibility that the site may be officially endorsed by the great man himself in the near future. I revamped the site recently and the new version went 'live' on Monday 10 July 2006.
I had the pleasure of meeting Gene & his Farewell Party Band when they toured Ireland in May 2004. I plan to see Gene & the boys on a couple of occasions when they return to our shores in August this year - I can’t wait!
Thank you for your time.
