Don’t miss hearing Grand Ole Opry member, country music legend Gene Watson when he performs at the Palace Theatre in Crossville. It is guaranteed real classic country music.
Watson with his Farewell Party Band will perform Sept. 10. Tickets are $49-$59 and available by calling 931-484-6133 or online at www.palacetheatre-crossville.com.
Watson was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry at 76 years of age. The Opry surprised him onstage with the honor Jan. 17, 2020, with Vince Gill asking him to be a member, 55 years after Watson first stepped foot on the legendary Ryman stage when he was just 21 years old.
Watson is recognized as one of the leading voices of classic country music. He’s one of the rare singers who still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and his audiences respond with standing ovations night after night when he nails the octave jumping last note on his most requested song, the now country classic “Farewell Party.”
