Gene Watson Releases New Single “Build My Mansion (Next Door to Jesus)”

Country legend Gene Watson released “Build My Mansion (Next Door to Jesus),” the second single off his critically-acclaimed Gospel album My Gospel Roots. The single features the incomparable vocal stylings of The Isaacs and is currently rising up the Gospel charts.

Fans of Watson’s take on the gospel classic include the award-winning movie producer and longtime business associate of Robert Duvall, Brad Wilson, “Gene Watson is one of the greatest singers of our lifetime. Now Gene with the help of The Isaacs has recorded one of the greatest songs of our lifetime “Build My Mansion (Next Door to Jesus)” and one of my all time favorites. This is probably the best version of this song ever done. A masterpiece! If Dottie Rambo were still with us, I would think she would feel the same.”

Watson recently celebrated another No. 1 off his critically-acclaimed Christian album My Gospel Roots which continues captivating fans with, “Old Roman Soldier.” The single ascended to the top spot on the Cashbox Country Christian and Christian Servant Charts earlier this summer. During a performance in Tyler, Texas at Liberty Hall, Watson was presented a plaque by Tommy Smith, Editor of Christian Servant Magazine, commemorating the No. 1 Gospel single.
