Oh man, oh man. Real country music fans need to stop what they are doing and go pick up the newest release from Gene Watson titled "In A Perfect World."
Its not often when I am going through new albums I receive for review and begin typing immediately, especially a blog entry on the album.
First and foremost. Gene Watson's voice is one of country music's gems. His style of country presentation is country to the bone. That's enough in itself to get excited about. However, to make this album even more special...
- Background vocals featuring Vince Gill doing "'Don't You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me" (originally recorded by Ray Price, Jack Greene, Ray Price & Willie Nelson & Ronnie Milsap)
- Background vocals featuring Lee Ann Womack "Today I Started Loving You Again" (originally recorded by Merle Haggard & Sammi Smith)
- Buck Owens' classic "Together Again" featuring Rhonda Vincent on background vocals
- "A Good Place To Turn Around" featuring Connie Smith on background vocals
- Joe Nichols, Mark Chestnut also featured background vocals
OK, if that isn't enough for you, look at the songwriter credits to some of the songs... Hank Cochran, Harlan Howard, and many other cream of the crop writers.
This album my friends is one of those to get excited about. Unfortunately, we don't get this lucky often, but when it does happen, it certainly feels like a perfect world.
