Tim Gates --a small town boy with a dream that has never died. Since he was 13 years old, he has touched hearts with his voice and his magical charm. He has a love for people, a zest for life, and a passion for country music! He worked several years as a social worker for people with disabilities. Tim moved to Nashville in 2002 with the love of his life, Roberta. Tim worked as a manager at the Alabama Grill in Nashville and started a writers' night there where he and Matt and Brad (Due West) discovered their "perfect harmony!" In 2006 Tim signed his first publishing deal with Platinum Pen Publishing and landed his first cut, "The Bible and the Belt." on Bucky Covington's debut album. Tim is having the time of his life as the lead singer of Due West and is excited for all that Due West is about to accomplish!
