'You Hold the Key"

Carlin Bates courtship

"Because it's like I'm staring at the stars up in outer space when I'm looking at those eyes on your pretty face."

A few readers requested that we post the video of the full song that Evan Stewart wrote for Carlin Bates. He performed it when he asked her to begin an official courtship back in August. Watch the clip below, and, if you would like a copy for yourself, click here for the purchase links.

  1. They monetized an amateur's personal love song? Honestly, if I were Carlin I would be offended and dissapointed. It would leave me wondering if the song was really for me or for the money.

    1. I am sure her oppinion on the matter of sales was taken into consideration. I would not be offended or wonder at all. Just the opposite. I would be proud of his talent and happy that others want to enjoy his song. He did a wonderful job.

    2. If the money earned from the song were going to a charity, I could live with that. Otherwise, I agree, it would leave me wondering too

    3. He isn’t an amateur. He and his family have a singing group.

    4. I have to say I agree. They seem like sweet people, and I like them, but if I were a Bates, I'd be worried people would marry me for fame or money. I have no doubt that Evan loves Carlin, but there also seems to be an element of love of attention. I don't know that I like that part of Evan, or even Bobby.

    5. If that money allowed us to have a better start to our future, why not? Maybe he can use the funds to pay a down payment for a house or at least a very nice engagement ring.

    6. He is a singer. Go to his website, it’s OWN Ministries. He and his family tour the country singing in churches and have been doing so for at least 15 years.

  4. Congratulations to Evan and Carlin! I wonder when he'll propose marriage, and what he'll do for that? I'm sure it will be special just like the courtship proposal.
