I’ve got a few hundred songs online streaming and for sale but for some reason this one song has been lapping them all lately as far as how many times it has been streamed and bought. “Slow Beach Music”, from my Carolina Songs album, is about the last song the band is playing in the bar at 2am. You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here. Thanks for listening! #beachmusic #shagsongs
I’m headed up to Mt. Mitchell Golf Course from Atlanta today to perform with the Master Plan for the “Golftoberfest” celebration. Mt. Mitchell is a great mountain resort and golf course and Teo’s, the restaurant there is one of the best around.
What better song to post today than “Boogie in the Mountains”, my shag song about getting your dance on in the mountains instead of the beach. Thanks for listening!
The snow followed me to the ATL. We’ve got about 4 inches here today! This week is also the start of the Mid Winter Boogie for the shaggers in Myrtle Beach wich made me think of today’s song. “Boogie in the Mountains” is about shaggers dancing even though there’s snow on the ground. Kind of appropriate for today, right?
Fall is officially showing it’s face up here in Asheville. It was chilly this morning. I played golf for the first time in months at Reems Creek, it was mighty fine. Adair and I then went to the Biltmore Estate with our dog Mozart and walked around the grounds forever. It’s nice to not be hot again.
I must have had all of that in mind last night when I wrote this song. I’ve been meaning to do another ‘beachy’ song and I guess now must be the opportune time. Thanks for listening!
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.
