Gene attended the 10th annual Mickey Newbury reunion in Houston this past week-end. It was a heartwarming event in remembrance of a great songwriter and singer.
Gene performed along with many others, to acknowledge their respect and admiration for Mickey. Gene has not performed, by choice, for several years, but felt honored to be a part of this event, to honor his longtime friend, Mickey.
For interested fans and friends:
Gene's time on stage was very casual, yet charismatic and since so much time has passed since he has performed, he was totally surprised that he received a standing ovation. Whether Gene thinks so or not, he is as good at performing now, as always, and this thought was shared by many friends and fans at the event.
A nostalgic and great job by Gene for Mickey Newbury.
