Sunday Morning Country Classic Spotlight Features Larry Gatlin and the Brothers
Larry Gatlin and his harmonizing brothers Steve and Rudy. With Larry’s soaring vocals and the solid background singing of Steve and Rudy, the brothers have enjoyed a career that has brought them number one records, a Grammy Award, and three awards from the ACM.
Raised in a musical family, the Gatlin brothers were joined by their sister Ladonna, who sang on several Gatlin albums through 1976. Larry and his brothers popularity lasted throughout much of the 1980′s. Their biggest hits together included, “Broken Lady,” “All the Gold in California,” and “Houston (Means I’m Closer to You.” Larry underwent surgery on his vocal cords in 1991 after years of wear and tear on his voice.
After more than a decade of singing together in December of 1992, the Gatlin Brothers embarked on a farewell tour before retiring to their own theater in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Since 2010, Larry has contributed to Fox News channel and Fox Business networks as a political and social commentator. Larry was a substitute host for Don Imus on his show in 2010, and filled in for Spencer Hughes on “Fox Across America” in 2011.
