Gene Wyatt

Born and raised in a mill village in Converse, South Carolina, Gene Wyatt, or “Colonel Gene” as he was known on the music scene, first picked up the guitar when he was 10. From a musical family, Wyatt grew up listening to the traditional country music of the 1930s and 1940s. He spent his youth picking cotton, and playing guitar and baseball. Baseball took him to California when the textile leagues recruited him to play for the Fresno Cardinals.
