Texas Country Music Hall of Fame artists Gene Watson and Johnny Rodriguez will appear on stage at The Grand in concert, with special guest host Brad Maule “Dr. Tony Jones” from TV’s General Hospital.
Hailing from Houston, Texas, masterful country stylist Gene Watson has been thrilling audiences for more than 50 years. Watson’s tally of 75 charted titles, 23 top-10 hits and 6 number-one records has led to membership in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.
A native of Sabinal, Texas, Johnny Rodriguez has been a prominent figure since 1971 when his “Pass Me By” hit the top of the country music charts. He had fifteen number-one hits, including: “Ridin’ My Thumb to Mexico,” “You Always Come Back To Hurting Me” and “Just Get Up And Close The Door.” In the past 40 years, Johnny has released 35 albums and charted 45 singles.
Brad Maule is best known for his 22 years on ABC’s General Hospital in the role of “Dr. Tony Jones.” After two Emmy nominations and all of those years, Brad decided that it was time to “die” on the show so that he could concentrate on his new career as an instructor at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX.
A Texas native, Brad spent summers performing at Casa Manana in Ft Worth, then moved to Los Angeles. He toured for a year with The Serendipity Singers and worked in Hawaii with Don Ho for one year.
He then moved back to Los Angeles and began working with Bobbie Gentry and Jim Nabors as a backup singer. Maule’s first big break came in guest starring roles on the original “Charlie’s Angels”, “Three’s Company”, and “White Shadow”. He performed Arthur’s Theme from the movie “Arthur” with Dudley Moore. It was then that he was discovered by “General Hospital”. He also spent 4 years on WB Network’s “7th Heaven” as Ashlee Simpson’s dad.
