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 WILL THE REAL LARRY GATLIN PLEASE SIT DOWN. Seated alone on the Circa ’21 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, who recorded his songs, such as Barbara Streisand, Kris Kristofferson, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, 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 – and that’s what this show is – kinda of like inviting people into my little living room, sitting down, telling stories and singing some tunes.” Gatlin sings many of his hits including “Houston”, “All The Gold In California”, “Broken Lady”, and “I Don’t Wanna Cry”, among others!
