Larry Gatlin
Larry Gatlin was born in 1948 in Seminole, Texas, the son of an oil driller. The oldest of the three Gatlin brothers, he was by age seven, already accompanying younger brothers, Steve and Rudy in singing at family and church events.

After high school, Larry went to the University of Houston on a football scholarship. Larry majored in English and developed "a love affair with the English Language" that later served him in his songwriting.

On the strength of his songwriting talents, Larry Gatlin became known throughout Nashville music Industry. While 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.

December 1992 marked a farewell to concert touring for the Gatlin brothers. Then came a major turning point in his career. Larry took the lead role in the Tony award winning best musical "The Will Rogers Follies."

Larry is a family man, who shares with his wife Janis, a home in Nashville, Tennessee. They are the proud parents of two children, Josh and Kristin.  Josh, and his wife Tracey, live in Nashville, and Josh works as Larry's manager.  Kristin lives in San Antonio, with her husband Scott.

Larry is also a "Papa" to Kristin's daughters, Parker and Campbell.
