Gene Watson blends traditional, organic country that purists long for in his new album,Real.Country.Music., available for preorder now and digital retailers February 26. After five decades in the music business and more than 75 charting singles, Watson continues to deliver an authentic, soulful album with Real.Country.Music. “It’s exactly what we titled the album. These are songs that still have fiddle, steel guitar and, quite honestly, soul,” Watson said. “I’m not one to bash what those younger artists are doing, but I can tell you a lot of what you hear nowadays isn’t country. This is Real.Country.Music.” Real.Country.Music. is Watson’s 33rd studio album, which includes a gospel rendition of “Help Me,” a song penned by Larry Gatlin and recorded by Elvis Presley. “Enough For You,” written by Kris Kristofferson, and “When A Man Can’t Get A Woman Off His Mind” a co-write by Bill Anderson and Sharon Vaughn, showcases Watson’s powerful voice and multi-octave range.
