Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers have been dazzling audiences for more than 60 years. They have seen their music top the charts and touch the lives of fans of all ages. The oldest of the three Gatlin brothers, Larry began singing by the age of seven with his younger brothers, Steve and Rudy, at family and church events. By 1976, the Gatlin Brothers career was in the fast lane, thanks to the chart-topping success of the Grammy Award-winning “Broken Lady.” The hits continued throughout the rest of the decade, including their signature song, “All the Gold in California,” soon to be followed by “Houston (Means I’m One Day Closer to You).” The number one hits continued into the next decade with “I Don’t Wanna Cry,” “I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love,” “Statues Without Hearts,” “Love is Just a Game,” and “Night Time Magic.” In addition to being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1976, the trio was nominated for awards by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music and the Music City News Awards, among others. The Gatlin Brothers said farewell to concert touring in December 1992 which became a major turning point in Larry’s career. Larry took the lead role in the Tony award winning best musical “The Will Rogers Follies.” In 2008, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers reunited as a band for the first time in 17 years returning to the road and releasing Pilgrimage on Curb Records. Today, Larry and the boys maintain a healthy tour schedule and, as members, play the Grand Ole Opry many times each year. Over a four decade career as a solo artist and with The Gatlin Brothers, Larry Gatlin has scored 33 Top 40 hits and won several awards including a Grammy. Gatlin is known for his rich falsetto singing style and for the unique pop-inflected songs he wrote and recorded in the 1970’s and 80’s. In this solo performance, Larry takes the audience on an intimate musical journey through his greatest hits. Members $34/$30, Guests $37/$33, General Public $42/$38
