Mote is recognized as one of Nashville’s most talented studio musicians. His piano artistry can be heard on the recordings of some of the nation’s premier preformers, including Brad Paisley, Trisha Yearwood, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts and Alison Krauss, just to name a few; however, since releasing his debut Southern Gospel recording in 2004, the talented singer and musician has enjoyed much success among Christian music circles, including numerous Top 40 hits and numerous Fan Award nominations. Mote’s video release, “The Best of Gordon Mote,” made its debut at Number 7 on the Billboard Music Video Chart in 2008. Mote’s travels throughout 2009 have included stops in the US and Canada, performing in excess of 150 concerts. This summer the popular Alabama native traveled to Europe for several concert events, and will return in October with the Gaither Vocal Band and several fellow Homecoming artists for concert stops in 11 countries.

Mote is riding high on the initial success of his brand new release, I Will Sing, and the debut radio single, “When I Lift Up My Head.” The upbeat Gospel bluegrass tune, written by the late Dottie Rambo, features multi-award winning recording artist, The Isaacs, on background vocals and is currently playing at radio stations nationwide.
