The following week, Oct. 7, the Museum will shine a light on legendary country singer Gene Watson, who had such hits as “Farewell Party” and “Fourteen Carat Mind,” with Gene Watson: Fourteen Carat Voice. Gene’s display features several wardrobes, including a suede cowboy hat with decorative pins. Both exhibits will run through spring 2009.
