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, â€˜why donâ€™t you retire?â€™ I say, â€˜Iâ€™ve become real accustomed to eating three meals a day.â€™ We made a lot of money. We paid our tithes, but we werenâ€™t very good with our money. The good news is we made a lot of money. The bad news is we donâ€™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 commentedÂ 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. Iâ€™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 Iâ€™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.”
