Some guys will do just about anything to win a woman’s affection. Just ask Greg Bates, whose “Did It For the Girl” is the MusicRow Chart’s No. 1 song and the Republic Nashville newcomer’s first as an artist. Bates co-wrote the song with Lynn Hutton and Rodney Clawson, and it appears on his self-titled EP.
In “Did It For the Girl,” Bates goes to such crazy lengths as getting a haircut, splashing on cologne, and even shining up the car to woo his lady friend. Okay, so it’s really not all that crazy. It’s more about the details and execution: making himself presentable (sans ball cap) and giving her an unforgettable date (with George Strait’s help), all to see her dancing in the sunset and hopefully receiving a kiss or two. You fellas taking notes?
Bates is currently wrapping up his opening slot on Brantley Gilbert’s “Hell on Wheels” tour, which finishes this weekend in Beaumont, Texas. See upcoming dates here.
