Fee: Call For Quote

The name Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers probably rings a bell with you. Legends in country music, their career has spanned four decades, produced hit records, sold-­out concerts, and countless awards.

His first win was in Odessa, Texas in 1959. (They won a Shetland pony!) Larry's talent has brought him many rewards since then: international fame, a Grammy, a truckload of #1 songs, a starring role on Broadway and two films. The oldest of the three Gatlin brothers, he was by age seven, already accompanying younger brothers, Steve and Rudy, in singing at family and church events.

After high school, Gatlin went to the University of Houston on a football scholarship. He majored in English and developed "a love affair with the English Language" that later served him in his songwriting. On the strength of his songwriting talents, Gatlin became known throughout Nashville music industry. While his brothers were finishing college, Gatlin was already touring the small club and listening room circuit as a solo act, looking forward to the time when he could afford to expand his live show to include his brothers.

Gatlin released his first album, The Pilgram, in 1974 and hit #1 the next year with Broken Lady, a song that fetched him a Grammy in 1976. In the middle of the decade, the Gatlin boys once again joined forces. Armed with an array of college degrees, life experience, and in the studio little sister LaDonna (who, along with Rudy and Steve had been opening for Tammy Wynette), the hits started flowing. In 1977, the group went to #1 again with I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love. It would happen again in 1979 with All The Gold In California.

Larry Gatlin entertains his audiences with humorous anecdotes about his encounters with countless celebrity friends and shares the insight he gained from his personal triumph over addiction.
