b. Adam David Gateley, 1 Might 1931, Springfield, Missouri, USA, d. 17 March 1985. Gateley discovered to try out fiddle and first made an appearance with an area music group on KGBX Springfield in 1951. After a spell using the Crimson River Rustlers in Jamestown, North Dakota, he joined up with Dusty Owen’s Rodeo Young boys on Wheeling Jamboree on WWVA Wheeling, Western world Virginia. He came back to Springfield in 1954, where, until 1963, he done radio and tv with Crimson Foley on Ozark Jubilee andJubilee USA. In 1963, he began an extended association with Costs Anderson, for whom he performed fiddle, sang, acted as frontman and was also highlighted on a lot of Anderson’s recordings. He became a normal for the Grand Ole Opry with Anderson and in addition in a dual work with Harold Morrison. He produced his first single recordings for Cullman in 1959 but afterwards recorded for many brands, including Starday, Decca Information, Columbia Records, Graph, Sapphire, B.T. and Constoga. He didn’t achieve a graph hit along with his personal recordings but his skills like a songwriter resulted in a few of his tunes becoming strikes when documented by others. Included in these are ‘Alla My Like’ (lots 5 in 1962 for Webb Pierce) and ‘The Minute You’re Eliminated’ (lots 9 in 1963 for Sonny Wayne). He co-wrote ‘Shiny Lights And Nation Music’ with Expenses Anderson, whose documenting of the track reached quantity 11 in 1965. He made an appearance in the filmsThe Street To Nashville andLas Vegas Hillbillies. He became a deacon of his regional Madison, Tennessee chapel and in the 70s, he became even more willing towards gospel music. In the first 80s, he released an recording of gospel tunes, and an additional one, My SORT OF Country, was written by his local chapel after his loss of life.
