Blind from birth, the Alabama native’s earliest recollections center around a love for music. As an extraordinary performer, Gordon has the amazing ability to communicate God’s mercy and love. With 14 solo recordings to his credit, as well as 18 Academy of Country Music Award nominations, two Grammy nominations, a Gospel Music Association Dove Award, and 30 years of touring, including 20 years as a solo artist, Gordon Mote continues to blaze new trails. As he releases his 15th solo recording and embarks on year number 21 in his full-time ministry, it is fairly safe to say that the multi-talented producer, singer, musician shows no signs of slowing down as he continues to choose to follow the direction of Christ, wherever He leads.
Where You Lead Me marks the fourth release on the New Haven label for the 3-time Academy of Country Music Keyboard/Piano Player of the Year. It serves as a testimony of God’s faithfulness. “I am a living testimony of God’s faithfulness and goodness,” Mote shares. “I am truly blessed beyond measure. He continues to lead, and I continue to follow.” This philosophy has worked quite well for Mote over the past three decades, and the songs he shares throughout Where You Lead Me, reflect this. Co-produced by Mote and multi-award winning producer, Wayne Haun, the recording features 12 songs, including the title cut, penned by Mote and fellow songwriter, Lyn Rowell. The recording also features guest appearances by noted artist/songwriter/worship pastor Travis Cottrell, as well as Randy Owen and Jeff Gentry, long-time members of legendary country group, Alabama.
