WILL THE REAL LARRY GATLIN PLEASE SIT DOWN Set for The Grand, 1/18
Grammy and Academy of Country Music Award-winning singer-songwriter, Larry Gatlin takes you on a uniquely personal journey through his life and career in this one-time only performance, "Will The Real Larry Gatlin Please Sit Down", Saturday, January 18 at 8pm. Seated alone on The Grand 1894 Opera House stage, Gatlin, with his acoustic guitar and some memorable "snapshots" will guide you through his beginnings in the dusty little Texas towns of Midland-Odessa all the way to the bright lights and excitement of Broadway and Las Vegas.
Raised listening to country and gospel music, Larry Gatlin and his brothers, Steve and Rudy, have always sung and performed together whether at church or on a local radio station. Eventually, his talents led him to the capitol of country music (Nashville) where he worked with iconic artists such as Dottie West, Kris Kristofferson, Elvis Presley, Barry Gibb of The Bee Gees and many more.
The humble beginnings in Nashville actually gave Gatlin the idea for this show, "When I first started here in Nashville I just sat down on a stool and did it." That's what he will be doing here at The Grand. He won't be expressing his famously strong political opinions or preach, he will sing some hits, spread a little humor and pick on himself as much as anyone else and all in good fun.
