Gordon Mote, Porter and their faith
May 24, 2012

Whenever you are around Gordon Mote you are sure to hear a Porter Wagoner story. And it will sound just like Porter !! His impression is pretty amazing. Gordon not only played piano and toured with Porter but he was a friend, sharing his faith and spending time with him before he passed. Gordon was instrumental in his decision to accept Christ which was an unforgettable experience.. And Gordon always tells folks what an honor it was to work with a legend like Porter. Gordon often talks about meeting his lovely wife Kimberly which he says was "Love at first sound" and their three children, Samantha, Parker and Ashton, whom Mote spends every spare moment with when he's isn't traveling or in the recording studio. As a father of three he beams with pride as he experiences his kids excelling in school, sports, music, and many of the same activities he excelled in throughout his school years. "I must confess, I have a great life," he says sitting in his backyard swing, as a spring breeze cools the middle Tennessee late afternoon sun. "Sure there have been obstacles, but I am a very blessed man." No doubt, Gordon Mote is a man who, through all the struggles, trials, triumphs, joys and blessings has learned to trust in Jesus and depend upon His Word Throughout his career, he has shared the stage with such popular performers as Martina McBride, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Josh Turner, and Carrie Underwood. Mote also became one of the most accomplished, sought-after recording studio session players in Music City, earning him eight nominations as Piano/Keyboard Player of the Year by the Academy of Country Music, and receiving the Award in 2009 and 2011. In addition to his solo career he has served as pianist for the popular Gaither Homecoming tour, with legendary songwriters Bill & Gloria Gaither. Gordon has released several albums with his current album titled "Songs I Grew Up Singing", released in the spring of 2011. This album brings new life to timeless classics that helped shape the musician and singer. All of his music including the song " Hold Me Up" recently performed on Country's Family Reunion "OLD TIME GOSPEL" series can be purchased on his website at www.gordonmote.com.
