Rolling Stone Country Offers Up Preview of “After The Fire Is Gone,” Bates’ Duet with the Legendary Loretta Lynn 

Nashville, Tenn. (November 10, 2014) – Tomorrow, November 11, 2014, country singer Jeff Bates will honor his idol when he releases his tribute to the late Conway Twitty, titled Me And Conway.   
 
Bates
always idolized Conway but never intended to mimic his vocals.  After
years of fighting critics and the industry about comparing their vocal
styles, Bates decided to record a new album with six Conway songs and
six others so that people could hear the differences and similarities
for themselves.  On Me and Conway, Bates has included his renditions of Conway Twitty classics, “Don’t Take It Away,” “Lost In The Feeling,” “I’d Love To Lay You Down,” “She’s Got A Single Thing In Mind” and “That’s My Job.”
 
Bates also included Conway’s classic duet with the legendary Loretta Lynn, “After The Fire Is Gone.”
 He was honored beyond comparison when the country matriarch agreed to
record the song with him.  The new version of the song marks the first
time Lynn has recorded the song since the original duet with Conway.  Rolling Stone Country is currently offering up an exclusive preview of the newly recorded classic hit.  Listen HERE.
 
Me And Conway, distributed by Sony Red / Red River Entertainment, will be available in retail stores tomorrow and online at JeffBates.net and Amazon.com, as well as digitally on iTunes.
