This year marks the Golden Anniversary of one of our greatest living country vocalists. In 1962, Gene Watson began his professional career by recording his first single.

"I didn't know what I was doing," he chuckles, remembering himself as a 19-year-old. "I think maybe I was dreaming a little bit. Who knows what's going through your mind back then? I was playing nightclubs here and there and decided it might be good if I could record a song.

"My first recording ever was on a little ole independent label that was started up just for this recording session, Sun Valley Records. Maybe I thought I could sell them at my shows or something. I wrote the record, ‘If It Was That Easy.' It was not any good, but, boy, I thought that was something. I had my own record."
