Country Weekly journalist Jessica Nicholson‘s recent interview covered Gordon’s life of music including his work as one of Nashville’s most in-demand studio session players. In the article, Gordon recalls memories of working with Lee Greenwood (his first job in the music business), Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Lionel Ritchie, Rascal Flatts and more.
Totally blind from birth, Gordon Mote began playing piano as a young three-year-old on Thanksgiving day when he shocked his parents by playing “Jesus Loves Me” on the piano. Named the 2009 and 2011 Keyboard/Piano Player of the Year by the Academy of Country Music after seven consecutive nominations, and a Gospel Music Association Dove award winner, Gordon has met and exceeded some of his wildest dreams. He has quickly joined the ranks of gospel music’s most entertaining stage personalities. A brilliant performer, insightful songwriter and prodigious musician, Gordon’s physical blindness somehow attunes his other senses more keenly and fuels his vision for bringing honor to Christ through his music.
His latest release Songs I Grew Up Singing is in stores now and available online at iTunes, Amazon and more.
Gordon is actively touring as a solo artist along with appearing on the Gaither Homecoming tours. Be sure to check out Gordon’s schedule at www.GordonMote.com.
