Starts TONIGHT 8-21-2020  at 9PM Eastern/ 8PM Central -   NASHVILLE, Tenn. –  After an introduction on stage by Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs, who claimed him as one of the most respected voices in country music history, Gene Watson became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in February before the novel coronavirus pandemic shut down live performances. As the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry, Watson will host a two-hour special as an Opry "House Guest DJ" at Willie's Roadhouse on SiriusXM. Watson will share with listeners stories from his more than 50 years performing on the Opry stage. The country legend hand-picked some of his favorite songs recorded by his friends and fellow Opry members, as well as iconic hits from his own extensive catalogue. Watson's set as an Opry "House Guest DJ" at Willie's Roadhouse on SiriusXM will premiere Friday, August 21 at 9 p.m. EST on Channel 59 and re-air throughout the weekend.

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Watson's hit "Farewell Party." The track, recorded in one take and released as the second single off Watson's album Reflections in 1979, soon became the country legend's signature song. Before the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Watson kept a busy touring schedule, performing his ample catalogue of hits, proving once again that he hasn't lost a note in his incredible multi-octave range.

Watson's latest release, My Gospel Roots, earned the singer four consecutive No. 1 singles on the gospel charts. Watson's single "Build My Mansion (Next Door To Jesus)" features The Isaacs and was the third single from My Gospel Roots to reach No. 1 on the Cashbox Country Christian Chart and Christian Servant Magazine. "Fit For A King" is the latest single to reach No. 1, topping the Cross Country USA magazine and currently at No. 3 on the Cashbox Country Christian Chart and climbing. My Gospel Roots is available on Watson's website, iTunes and Amazon.
