This is my first foray into making kids’ songs, as well as, my first song for charity and I can’t be more excited! “Egg Sandwich” is a song that’s had several versions since Jeramy Lamanno and I wrote and recorded it in my parents basement many years ago. However, the latest and greatest one, written specifically for kids is quite different to say the least.
The proceeds from the song will go to benefit charities that feed kids when they are in and out of school. A lot of kids don’t excel in education because they are properly nourished and don’t have the energy. So getting them some proper nutrition actually helps on several different levels.
I’m giving folks the chance to buy it at the normal $.99 price or with a larger donation that will go to the charity. The song is available on all platforms (iTunes etc.) and at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/chriscates18 – This is the $.99 option and is at my trusted distributer CDBaby.
The video features my twins, Joy and Coral, and a cast of characters that include Adair, Jeramy, Singleton, John Kell and more of my friends’ kids that texted me some video.Thanks for checking it all out and supporting a great cause!
The next song off of ‘Risky Biscuits’ used to be our most popular live song in the Athens era Parakeet Nelson heyday. It’s also my Dad’s favorite song by that band! This was recorded live and features incredible solos by John Wayne Tuggle, Gary Hartle, Mike Elam, me (harmonica) and John Kell. Thanks for listening!
Well Lebron lost, as I said yesterday, I hope he stays. I was going to do a song about that today but it didn’t come out the way I wanted it to, so I arrived at this one. Maybe I’m subconsciously speaking to Lebron in the song telling him to smile and get over it. I think that’s why they lost. They quit having fun. That’s something we should never do. Always have fun, even if things aren’t so great. I know, better said than done. At least it’s a nice thought.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
