Jeff Bates performs country in Maggie Valley

Written by 

Country music star Jeff Bates will perform 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 2, at Eaglenest Entertainment.

Jeff Bates doesn’t cherry pick his life for the high spots. Whether he’s writing or singing a song, he’s always emotionally honest. A native of Mississippi, Bates signed with RCA Records in 2002. That association yielded two albums: “Rainbow Man” in 2003 and “Leave The Light On” in 2006 plus seven charted singles: “The Love Song,” “Rainbow Man,” “I Wanna Make You Cry,” “Long, Slow Kisses,” “Good People,” “No Shame” and “One Second Chance.”

The stories of his adoption, meth addiction and jail time have been bared honestly for the media and country music fans, but there’s so much more to the man that Jeff Bates has become.

The album captures snapshots of what’s most important to him: strong family ties, the love of a good woman, appreciation for the workin’ man, and his unfailing religious beliefs – all buffered with a quick smile and sense of humor. Overall, it’s a body of work filled with surprising insights and intimate confessions told in Bates’ own rich voice.

Tickets available at box office from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or at 828.926.9658. www.eaglenestnc.com.

And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
