Gene Cotton (Columbus, Ohio) is a pop and folk singer-songwriter best known for his four Billboard Top 40 entries during the years 1976–1978.
With very good albums, like "Save The Dancer" that includes the very known "Like A Sunday in Salem" or the hits "Let Your Love Flow" (also performed by The Bellamy Brothers) and "You're A Part Of Me" (with Kim carnes), "Rain On" contains songs written by the own Cottton, Eric Kaz, Randy Vanwarmer, Neil Diamond or Parker McGee, and it's a good sample of the West Coast sound in the middle 70's.
In recent years, Cotton has scaled back his career as a singer and songwriter and spent much of his savings on a legal battle against the construction of a state highway (State Route 840) which would surround Nashville. Cotton has devoted himself to helping the underprivileged of his area by motivating them in their studies and activities through a program called Kids On Stage (KOS). KOS brings in Nashville artists to run summer classes that open the doors to the arts to kids who might otherwise never see greatness or think about greatness in their arts. Most notably, Grammy Award winner Michael McDonald has performed numerous times to bring awareness and raise donations for this program under Cotton's leadership, besides producing independent films about the plight of the poor around the world.
