2022 marks 60 years since country music legend Gene Watson released his first single to radio. To celebrate, the iconic vocalist is embarking on his 60th Anniversary Tour, which kicked off Jan. 1 in Florida and will take Watson across the country.
Watson’s single “If It’s That Easy” was released to radio in 1962 via Sun Valley Records. Since then, the “singer’s singer” has charted 75 titles including 23 Top 10 hits, six No. 1 country singles and five No. 1 gospel records. The Texas native continues to perform to sold-out crowds, singing in the same key as he did more than five decades ago and thrilling fans with his famous octave jumping ending to “Farewell Party” night after night.
