"Each week we find a track from an artist or a band we’ve been enjoying and bring it to you, for free, as our Single of the Week. As a Nashville native, Greg Bates may have seemed predestined for the country singer/songwriter life. But while he immersed himself in the neo-traditionalist styles of greats such as Dwight Yoakam and Randy Travis and gigged locally, he also attended Music City’s Belmont University to study music business. He was successful at both pursuits, landing a recording contract after graduating and releasing a self-titled EP that includes the easy-going "Did It for the Girl." With lyrics about the modern male mating ritual, references to certain car and beer brands, and a shout out to George Strait, this memorable number is wholly relatable to today’s listener." -- iTunes Store
