Watson’s career in the music industry spans over 50 years. His career began with performances in night clubs until Capitol Records picked up his album, Love in the Hot Afternoon. The title track quickly reached No. 3 on the Billboard Magazine Hot Country Singles chart. His success continued with Billboard Top 40 hits including “Where Love Begins,” “Paper Rosie,” “Should I Go Home (or Should I Go Crazy),” “Nothing Sure Looked Good on You,” and “Farewell Party,” which became Watson’s signature song and namesake of his Farewell Party Band. Watson was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame (2002) and inaugural class of the Houston Music Hall of Fame in 2013.
