Jerry Yates Song No. 1 on April Georgia Roots Music Chart
Newnan musician Jerry Yates, who just received an award from his producer, has now received another honor, this one from the Roots Music Association, whose April Radio Airplay Chart for Georgia shows Jerry Yates song "There's Peace From the Lord" in the No. 1 Slot. This association is one of a number of such groups which have sprung up in recent times promoting what is known as American Roots Music or Americana Music, which comprises several genres. The top ranking song by Yates is in the "Gospel" genre. A good example of this is the music in the film O, Brother, Where Art Thou?.
Yates has become fairly well known in the area for those who like Gospel music and Bluegrass music. He has played at numerous venues including the monthly Grantville Depot Southern Country Gospel Sings run by Roy Smith. Yates' next gig will be in Senoia over the Memorial Day weekend.
