Classic country artist Gene Watson is prepping the release of his 33rd career studio album.
Real. Country. Music. is set for release on Feb. 26, and will feature 13 new recordings, including some classic tracks co-written by some of the best songwriters in Nashville. Kris Kristofferson, Bill Anderson and Larry Gatlin are just a few of the legends who have penned songs featured on Watson's newest release.
"These are songs that still have fiddle, steel guitar and, quite honestly, soul," Watson said in a press release. "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."
