Gordon MoteGordon Mote is one of Eric's dearest friends and an amazing person. I met Gordon the night I first met Eric. They were playing at Opryland Hotel in Nashville - Gordon on the piano and Eric on bass guitar. Eric was living with Gordon and his wife - Kimberly and their sweet baby girl - Samantha - at that time. (Samantha is the little girl singing on Eric's song "God Bless My Soldier Too") I soon learned to love Gordon for the person he is and the kindness that he showed to the man I love. We have watched Gordon grow as a musician and singer over the years and knew he was going to be one of THE top in Nashville. We brought Gordon's new born baby boy - Parker home from the hospital - and celebrate as Gordon and Kimberly welcome a new baby into their home this week!
Gordon has gone on to be the top piano, keys and string player in Nashville - playing on all of the top albums you hear on the radio. He is much in demand from everyone recording now - including Eric! Gordon also decided to pursue a Gospel Artist career and was quickly discovered by Bill Gaither. Gordon is now a member of the Gaither Vocal Band and tours Nationwide with them as well as on his own - on top of his busy recording schedule. We don't get to spend much time with Gordon and Kimberly anymore due to all of our busy touring schedules - but still enjoy the time we get to spend with Gordon when he comes to our studio to record with Eric. We pray that they will be blessed with another healthy, beautiful baby this week and Kimberly will recover quickly.
With all of Gordon's amazing accomplishments - what is so unique about all of this is that Gordon was born blind. He never let that stop him and through it all - he never lost sight of the cross!
Check out Gordon's website and you will certainly be blessed!! Tell him that Eric & Deb sent you!
