Bad Baby! Bad!

I have to do a review of Jeff Bates's new CD for Country Standard Time magazine. So I went to Wikipedia for some background (cuz record labels don't send out press kits that starving critics can sell on eBay for a few bucks anymore) and I found out that Mr. Bates was a real country music outlaw at a very young age:
When Bates was three months old, he was given up by his biological mother and adopted by a sharecropping family. Bates had previously spent time in jail for grand larceny.
