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.

“Although I’m mostly known as a Southern gospel guy, my Bluegrass roots run deep; very deep,” says Butler. “I grew up on Flatt and Scruggs, Live from Carnegie Hall. Earl was the first to show me his three-finger banjo roll. I’ve played and toured with Dailey and Vincent.  I’ve been blessed to host a national award-winning syndicated Bluegrass Gospel show for over 20 years. Yes, I guess it’s safe to say that in addition to being a Southern Gospel guy, I am also a Bluegrass guy.”

Happy Birthday to Larry Gatlin!

Written by Staff on May 2, 2016 – 10:12 am -

Larry Gatlin

Larry Gatlin

Larry Gatlin is well known to many of us and we are happy to celebrate his 68th birthday with him!

Last fall, Larry chatted with our writer, Craig Harris about his life, music and experiences. When asked about his age and possibly slowing down, Larry said, “People say, ‘why don’t you retire?’ I say, ‘I’ve become real accustomed to eating three meals a day.’ We made a lot of money. We paid our tithes, but we weren’t very good with our money. The good news is we made a lot of money. The bad news is we don’t have a lot left!”

Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers released their latest album, The Gospel According to Gatlin, a few months ago. Look for it at your local Christian retailers. Larry commented to Craig, “The new single, ‘An American with a Remington,’ we put it on a Gospel album. I wrote all of these songs or co-wrote them. We are proud of the album. I’m thankful. I better sing good, because those two cowboys on the left and right are going to sing good. We are the most consistent, in-tune, phrasing-together group that I’ve ever heard.”

As you can tell, Larry has a unique mixture of dry humor and straightforward speech. He also says, “I take a lot of pride in my humility. Pride goeth before fall.”

Larry Gatlin’s illustrious career marches on as new opportunities arise

Larry Gatlin is no stranger to the stage. However, the stages have become more varied over the course of his career.
The eldest of the Gatlin Brothers doesn’t just step on the stage to sing, though he still performs a host of dates with his brothers Rudy and Steve.

Larry Gatlin

Larry Gatlin

The Texas native and current Nashville resident is a songwriter, an actor, a political and social contributor, and he has also served as a television host.
However, even with those numerous endeavors, Larry Gatlin’s feet are still firmly entrenched in musical soil.
We recently sat down with Gatlin to talk about his adventurous past, the present journey and what lies in the road ahead. His feedback is as follows …

 

LARRY GATLIN & THE GATLIN BROTHERS PERFORM "AN AMERICAN WITH A REMINGTON" ON FOX & FRIENDS

LARRY GATLIN & THE GATLIN BROTHERS PERFORM
“AN AMERICAN WITH A REMINGTON” ON FOX & FRIENDS

What’s your current touring schedule like, and do you mix some solo performances along with the performances with your brothers?

People say, ‘why don’t you retire?’ I say, ‘I’ve become real accustomed to eating three meals a day.’ We made a lot of money. We paid our tithes, but we weren’t very good with our money. The good news is we made a lot of money. The bad news is we don’t have a lot left. We still love music. I do some solo performances, and Steve and Rudy also (do select performances without Larry).
