Newcomer Greg Bates is a horrible gift giver, and he knows it. Though he buys actual gifts for the people in his immediate family, everyone else in his life will be getting the same thing this year.
Greg says, "I’m the guy that will give you a gift card or cash because it’s really hard for me to find the one perfect gift to give everybody every year and sometimes it’s just easier."
He doesn't exactly feel bad about giving gift cards though.
"I like to think that if I give somebody a gift card then they can go spend it on whatever they want to spend it on," Greg explains.
Greg Bates scored his first top five single this year with "Did It for the Girl."
