They say that everything in Texas is bigger, and Crystal Yate’s voice certainly lends credence to that claim. The soul and gospel music genres of the South’s influence on Crystal’s style is evident in her smooth full-bodied vocals and the heart and soul that goes into her music. When asked about her genre, Yates says that she is more soulful country than anything, and I wholeheartedly agree.
A transplant to McKinney, TX, Crystal was born and raised in Niceville, FL. She and her husband, Will, took a leap of faith when they moved to Texas to pursue her musical carrier. Since that time, Yates has produced a full album, Love Wins, and in October she released an EP titled I Believe. In 2014 she was the winner of the prestigious Texaco Country Showdown competition where she was named best new act in country music. Read More
