Gordon Mote -- one of Nashville's most in-demand session players -- is also one of Gospel music's most talented artists, which he shows on his new album, "All Things All." As we were getting close to the end of the record, we had songs about forgiveness, and songs that encouraged people, and all kinds of songs. But, I wanted to write a song that told God 'I love you for you. Yes, you've given me a lot of great blessings, and done so much for me and others, but I love him just for who he is."
The support that Mote's family gives to him astounds the singer, who has been blind since birth.
"I've worked with Trace a whole bunch, and of course, I have a history with the Gaithers having been on the road with them for six and a half years, but even before that, working with them in the studio so much on their albums. He told me one time 'All I've ever wanted to do is sing bass in a Gospel quartet, so he's doing that on this song."
If Mote's popularity in Nashville was ever in question, the star power reflected on "Do You Believe In Love" sums up how his fellow artists feel about him with appearances from Darius Rucker, Josh Turner, Scotty McCreery, Gabe Dixon, Sheryl Crow, and Matthew West. "I've played with a bunch of people over the years. I've played with Bob Seger, Lionel Richie, Uncle Kracker, Kid Rock, and so many other artists. I've been very fortunate, and hope to continue playing on records as long as I can."
