Greg Bates Introducing Himself With His Music
Country newcomer Greg Bates says upcoming debut album will be a genuine reflection of him as an artist. The singer tells Billboard.com that even though it's his first studio project, the staff at his label didn't try to "change too much" or force him to do something he didn't want to do. Fans are getting to know Greg through his debut single, "Did It for the Girl," which he released in April. Bates has been promoting the song on a radio tour, and admits he was nervous when he started the trek. But he explains that it really is just a rite of passage, and "you really have to just get thrown to the wolves, and see how you do." But Greg says it didn't take long for him to get comfortable with the process, and he ended up having a lot of fun. Fans will get to hear more from Bates soon. He's releasing a five-song digital EP on July 10th.
