Ty Bates' Georgia roots have no doubt influenced his love and respect for country music. Growing up listening to Alan Jackson, Randy Travis and Garth Brooks, Ty grew to love the stories the legends sang about in their colossal hits. Ty’s first musical memory came in 1989 when his dad, who worked for Ford Motor Company in Hapeville, Georgia, took him to an open house at the plant. Ty was fascinated with the production of the cars but what captivated his attention was the band and music of a new country star, Alan Jackson. What better way to be introduced to music than by a living legend, and as they say “the rest is history”.  
Ty began singing and writing and with each new song his love and passion for music grew. Ty sang wherever he could ... beauty pageants, talent shows, churches, All-State chorus, fairs and even flea markets. As each appearance lead to an invitation to another stage he began to realize the potential of making his mark in music in a life long career.
After graduating from high school he pursued his music career by
moving to Myrtle Beach, SC where he sang in shows including "High Steppin Country" and the highly acclaimed “Carolina Opry”. While fine tuning his stage presence night after night he began recording several of his original songs where he fell in love with the studio.
In Nashville, Ty recorded a self titled album which was received with high praise from industry peers. Ty would eventually form the "Ty Bates Band". His live shows began to draw bigger and bigger crowds with more than enthusiastic fans. Word spread big and fast that “Ty Bates” was the show to see. Recognized by members of Georgia’s country music industry as Georgia’s best country artist and artist most likely to succeed, Ty was named Georgia Country Artist of the year Nov.5,2011. 
With electrifying and contagious energy on stage and his soulful, rich vocals in songs like "The South I Love", “You Know I Know” and "Peace of Mind", Ty continues to establish himself in Nashville as the artist to watch in 2012.
