Three Rivers College Patrons of the Arts and the Rodgers Theatre to host classic country performer Gene Watson
Three Rivers College Patrons of the Arts and the Rodgers Theatre have partnered to present classic country music performer Gene Watson at 7 p.m. February 27 at the Rodgers Theatre.
With his powerful voice and multi-octave range, Gene Watson performs classic country songs about life, heartaches, loves, and family. He remains defiantly country in the face of today’s more pop oriented offerings and is proud to keep traditional country music alive and well.
In his long career, Watson has had five number one songs, 23 top tens, and more than 76 charted singles. He’s most famous for his 1975 hit “Love in the Hot Afternoon,” his 1981 #1 hit “Fourteen Carat Mind,” and his 1979 song “Farewell Party.”
“Gene Watson is the real deal in classic country music,” said Robert Abney, Director of the Tinnin Fine Arts Center. “If you’re a fan of classic country, you will really enjoy this show, and you can see him for a fraction of the cost compared to larger markets,” said Abney.
Early bird general admission tickets are $20 each and are available online at trcc.edu/tinnin and rodgerstheatre.org, as well as in person at the Three Rivers Student Accounts Office and the Tinnin Center Art Gallery. Tickets will be $25 at the door, if any remain. All seats reserved.
