Hi Friends - Are you getting into the holiday spirit yet? We’ve still got leaves on the trees in Houston but they’re falling quickly and of course, in this city, it’s still warm – but I’m already looking forward to Thanksgiving because it’s a wonderful time of the year to celebrate with friends and family – and to be honest, I love some turkey and dressing!
I enjoy the cooler weather of winter but not the snow and ice we encounter on some of our trips. That, I can do without – but we’re approaching that season where we’re watching the forecast for the first snowflakes. Some of you have already seen snow but for us Texans, we won’t see that until a little bit later.
I’m excited to let you know that we have the new music for “Outside The Box” on VINYL! I can’t recall what my last vinyl album release was but it has been many, many years. Now that vinyl has come roaring back, we decided to try a very limited run of it. The official release date is December 9th but we’ll be starting a pre-sale at my online store at www.GeneWatsonMusic.com
around November 15th. We’ll only have a very limited number of autographed vinyl albums but I’ll keep you posted on that information along with some other special sale items.
In other news, we’re going to be at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, December 10th, and to put you in the Christmas spirit, we’re bringing a special guest onstage to sing a holiday favorite with me. This will be the debut of that song on the Opry with the original singer and it’s one of the most played Christmas songs on the radio since the song was released in 1989! I hope you can come to the Opry in person (get your tickets at Opry.com ) or listen online at WSMonline.com.
Thank you for listening to REAL country music and I always hope to see you out on the road. Until then, take care - Gene
