Gary Gene Watson never intended on a career in music. When you take a look at the tracks on this Ultimate Collection, it becomes evident his absence would have left a gaping hole in country music, for as one of Nashville's premiere country journalists, Robert K. Oermann, has said, "The world stops spinning when he sings." So, while, as Watson says, "I never did go looking for music, music found me," music was obviously destined for this unassuming man born in Palestine, Texas and raised in Paris, Texas. But because he took his singing in church, and with his 6 siblings, for granted, never considering that it could be a profession, to this day it is difficult for him to trace the origin of his realization that indeed it would end up being the crux of his life.

"As far back as I can remember talking, I can remember singing. My brother just younger than me played lead guitar and I was the singer, and we would entertain at a lot of the school functions and local get-togethers. But music was never one of my goals. All I ever dreamed of was working on cars," says Watson, who still enjoys dabbling on cars in his little Houston shop.

By 17, he was married (still is, to the same woman he married in 1961), and had to lie about his age to get a job building missile silos in Abilene. Six years later, in 1966, Watson moved to Dallas where an uncle helped him get his first professional job as a singer at a club called The Palms. Still, he didn't take the possibility of making a living at music seriously, until moving to Houston where he formed a band called Gene Watson and the Other Four, dropping the Gary from his name.
