Gene Watson’s “Build My Mansion (Next Door To Jesus)” Ascends to No. 1 on Christian Charts

Gene Watson’s single “Build My Mansion (Next Door To Jesus)” ascends to
the No. 1 position on the Cashbox Country Christian Chart and Christian
Servant Magazine. Additionally, the single is currently in the Top 10 on
SGNScoops Christian Magazine. The single features The Isaacs and is the
third No. 1 single from his critically acclaimed Christian album, My Gospel Roots. The album is available  on Watson’s website, iTunes and Amazon.

“To have three No. 1’s in a row on the Gospel charts leaves me
speechless. Really, there are no words to express how much it means to
me,” said Watson. “I’m eternally grateful to my fans who have supported
my Gospel music and I’m thankful for the Country Christian radio
stations for playing my music. To have three No. 1 songs in a row is
unheard of for me, and I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who
helped make that happen.”

Watson is currently celebrating the 40th Anniversary of his 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. To celebrate the milestone
anniversary, Watson has been hitting the road performing his catalogue
of hits and fan-favorite songs, proving once again that he hasn’t lost a
note in his incredible multi-octave range.
