Mile One Centre in St. John's announced today that Gene Watson is bringing his tour to the facility Sept. 6.
A news release describes Watson as a singer in country music's grand tradition and has the skill to give powerful vocal performances and draw emotion from his selected material effortlessly.
"Watson has remained true to his Texas music roots for the best part of 30 years and is a standard bearer for honest, traditional country music," the release states.
