On the strength of his songwriting talents, Larry Gatlin became known throughout the Nashville music industry. While his brothers, Steve and Rudy, were finishing college, Larry 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.
From 1976 to 1992, the brothers toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada and overseas. They racked up hit after hit and banked some of the most prestigious awards in the industry. Larry penned every Gatlin Brothers hit you’ve ever heard.
In the early 2000’s the brothers reunited for selective road dates and 2008, recorded their first album in nearly two decades, Pilgrimage. In 2015, the brothers celebrated 60 years of making music together and released a new album, The Gospel According to Gatlin.
Larry resides in Nashville with the love of his life, Janis, to whom he’s been married for over 40 years. They are the proud parents of two children, Josh and Kristin. He is also a proud grandfather, lovingly known as “Papa.”
