Feb. 7


Award-winning country and gospel pianist Gordon Mote will be in concert at 6 p.m. Sunday, at Thomasville’s First Baptist Church. The concert is free and open to the public.

Blind since birth, Mote has shared the stage and studio with some of the biggest names in the country and gospel music fields, including Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Lionel Richie, and Alison Krauss. Voted top pianist by the Country Music Association, Mote is probably best known as the pianist for the highly popular Gaither Homecoming concerts and Gaither Vocal Band (led by legendary gospel music artist, Bill Gaither). Mote just wrapped up his six-year stint with Gaither to devote more time to family, producing, and his solo career.

“Gordon Mote brings a unique opportunity to enjoy one of the country’s finest pianists in any field,” said Rev. Andy Daughtry, associate pastor of worship and media at First Baptist. “He is incredible. As a pianist myself, he’s one of my heroes. If you love the Gaither videos, you don’t want to miss this concert. We are absolutely delighted to bring Gordon to Thomasville.”

First Baptist is located at 210 N. Broad St. in historic downtown Thomasville. For more information, call the church at 228-6800, or visit the church’s website at
