Nashville, Tenn. (December 1, 2018) – This morning, Larry Gatlin of legendary country music group Larry, Steve & Rudy: The Gatlin Brothers, released the following statement on the passing of former United States president, George H.W. Bush:

“I first met president George H.W. Bush in 1964 when Steve, Rudy and I sang for his congressional run. He lost. Later when he became vice-president, I walked up to him in the White House to say hello. He stuck out his hand and said, ‘Hey Larry Gatlin… you’re one of those little snotty nose kids who sang for my campaign in Odessa in 1964.’ I said, ‘Yessir, I am.’ He said, ‘It worked out better this time. We won!’ Rest in peace, old friend.” -Larry Gatlin

The Gatlin Brothers became close friends of the former president, performing on his behalf on the campaign trail, at his inauguration in 1989, and multiple times at the White House and the historic Ford Theatre in Washington D.C.

Bush passed away on Friday, November 30. He was 94.

LARRY GATLIN ADDED TO PERFORMER LINEUP AT TEXAS HERITAGE SONGWRITERS’ HALL OF FAME AWARDS SHOW

Written by SGN Scoops on February 27, 2013 – 8:43 pm -

larryNashville, Tenn. (February 27, 2013) – Country music legend LARRY GATLIN will perform this weekend at the 8th Annual Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame Awards Show.  The event takes place on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at ACL Live at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin, Texas.

“Texas is my home, Nashville is my home away from home,” says Gatlin.  “Eight years ago I was voted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and was then and am now very humbled by that great honor.”

Each year, the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association (TxHSA) honors songwriters during a live Awards Show and induction ceremony—the Hall of Fame inductees are those who embody and celebrate the unique history and culture of Texas through their songwriting. This year’s roster includes legendary artists Ronnie Dunn, Sonny Curtis and Roger Miller.

Gatlin notes, “This year’s inductees, Sonny Curtis, Ronnie Dunn and one of my mentors and my great friend, the late Roger Miller, will feel the same way I felt when inducted.  Congrats fellars, and welcome to our happy little band.”

Honorees Dunn and Curtis will offer a featured performance after accepting their awards. Plus, Jack Ingram will open the show; Gatlin, a TxHSA Hall of Famer, will perform; and country music superstar Toby Keith will deliver a special performance in honor of one of his most loved songwriters of all time, Roger Miller.

This event brings together past Hall of Fame inductees and honors those whose contributions allow Texas songwriters to continue doing what they do best. Every year at the Hall of Fame Awards show, one person is recognized for their support of the songwriting community with The Darrell K. Royal Patron Award. This year’s recipient is the late Robin Ratliff Shivers, Founder of Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), longtime philanthropist and enduring supporter of the music community in Austin.

Sunday’s Hall of Fame Awards Show will close out TxHSA’s weekend-long Homecoming celebration, which takes place March 2-3, 2013, and is packed with performances from past inductees, Grammy award nominees and recipients, and renowned songwriters and recording artists.

On Saturday evening, TxHSA will host the Darrell K Royal Songwriters’ Homecoming—a VIP/sponsor party at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum—where Chris Stapleton, Scotty Emerick and Mac McAnally will take the stage for an intimate acoustic performance.
