A Concert and a Date Night

A new episode of Bringing Up Bates is coming your way in less than six hours! It kicks off at 9pm ET/8pm CT on UP.

As they show opens, Lawson Bates receives a bunch of copies of his new CD, "What Country Means to Me." The family rejoices with him as he opens the boxes and reflects on the hundreds of hours of work that went into creating the album.

Zach and Whitney Bates drop their kids off with the family and head to Ye Old Steak House for a date night. They reflect on all that has happened in just three years of marriage.

When the night of the show rolls around, Lawson becomes nervous when a few hiccups cause things to go less smoothly than expected.

In an emotional moment, Lawson is joined by three of his little friends from the children's hospital, who help him sing a round of "Jesus Loves Me." The crowd is in tears, especially proud dad Gil Bates. 

Lawson honors children's hospital patient AJ, whose family has become close friends of the Bates.

Despite her trepidation, Carlin Bates agrees to join Lawson on stage for a duet.
