Wayne Watson

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
One of Christian music's best-loved singers and songwriters, Watson opens his 16th record with an anthem of encouragement, "A Little Unusual." It's appropriate, considering the personal trials that gave birth to this group of songs. A devastating illness and the death of his father may have left Watson shaken, but he's emerged with a renewed faith and conviction that's evident throughout this record. On "The Blood of Jesus," a criminal appears in heaven to explain "it was the blood of Jesus that opened heaven's door to let me in." On "Turning into Dad," Watson pays sweet homage to his father with the tender line, "I could do a lot worse than turning into my dad." Watson ...

Watson continually urges listeners to look beyond the things of this world, and while he never promises the road will be easy, his songs offer comfort to fellow travelers.
All Music Guide - Charlotte Dillon
Some people believe it takes a little suffering for an artist to reach the true inspiration deep within them. A lot of people might not agree, but maybe it was some suffering through trying times that helped gospel singer, songwriter, and musician Wayne Watson pen the songs on this self-titled recording that was released in the summer of 2000. Before he started work on this album, an accident left Watson in no shape to continue the uncompromising schedule of his longtime demanding musical career. Day-to-day life became a battle of its own, and after a while he couldn't help but seriously consider the downhearted possibility of giving up his musical career forever. Before he could take the final steps away, though, a higher calling seemed to have other plans for him to stay in the battle. He began receiving good news, like one of his songs being used on the hit television show Touched by an Angel. Somehow he began performing again and soon started work on this album. It took him only a little over two months to write all of the songs for this self-titled offering. Some of the powerful tunes fans can sample on this recording are "The Ones Left Standing," "Pray," "The Blood of Jesus," "More Than a Little Unusual," and "Everything Can Change So Fast."
