More Musical Bates Kids

Earlier this week, we shared a video of Erin (Bates) Paine playing a unique piano version of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" at her Comfort & Joy CD release party. It's time to show off the talent of two more of the 19 Bates children. Watch and listen as Lawson Bates and Carlin Bates perform "White Christmas," accompanied by fiddle legend Andy Leftwich.

Season three of Bringing Up Bates premieres January 7th, 2016, on UP.


  1. Very nice! What a talented family! God bless!

  2. Very good job! I would have liked to here Carlin with a solo, you could barely here her! But overall fantastic job! Y'all are very talented. God bless!

  3. Good job, but I agree Carlin needs a solo or a microphone of her own. You cannot hear her over Lawson. Is this song on Erin's Christmas CD?

    1. Hi there,

      White Christmas is not on Erin's Christmas album. These are the songs that are:

      Let it Snow
      God rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
      Joy to the World
      Away in the Manager
      Silver Bells
      Go Tell it on the Mountain
      Frosty the Snowman
      It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
      Jingle Bells
      Silent Night
      Marshmallow World
      Hark the Herald Angels Sing

      Lily and Ellie

  4. Wish I could have heard Carlin better; it's like she was whisper singing. She needed her own microphone instead of singing over her brother's shoulder. She should have stepped over to the other microphone. Was she not confident?
