Biography,Gatlin was born in Seminole in Gaines County, Texas, next to the New Mexico border. His father was an oilfield worker, and the family lived in several locations while he was a youth, including Abilene and Odessa. He was reared listening to country and southern gospel music. He and his brothers, Steve and Rudy, have performed together since childhood, when they were younger, they often sang in their local church. They sometimes performed on local radio stations, and occasionally on television shows. They also recorded a gospel music album for the Gospel label Sword and Shield. The brothers even managed to beat out the legendary Roy Orbison in a local talent contest.[citation needed] In 1964, Gatlin was a quarterback at Odessa High School.After graduation in 1966, Gatlin was eligible to serve in the Vietnam War, however, he did not, instead choosing to attend the University of Houston. As a wide receiver on the football team, he caught a touchdown pass in a 1968 game in which his team, the Cougars, scored 100 points.He later auditioned for and joined the gospel music group The Imperials. The Imperials went on to perform in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 1971 at Jimmy Deans Las Vegas Revue. While walking through the showroom, he caught country singer Dottie Wests attention, who thought he looked like Mickey Newbury.West soon met Gatlin and was impressed with his songwriting skills. She was so impressed, in fact, that she recorded two of Gatlins compositions, Youre the Other Half of Me and Once You Were Mine. West also passed one of Gatlins demo tapes around Nashville, Tennessee, and even arranged for him to relocate there, purchasing a plane ticket for him—a story he related on the 11/12/2009 episode of Larrys Country Diner on RFD-TV. West later recorded other compositions by Gatlin that would later become hits for him, including Broken Lady, which was put on Wests 1978 album, Dottie.As a solo artistWith Wests help, Gatlin found work in Nashville as a background singer for Kris Kristofferson. In 1973, Gatlin landed a solo recording contract with Monument Records.In 1973, Gatlin released his first album, The Pilgrim. Two singles were released from the album: Sweet Becky Walker and Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall, though both failed to chart. The latter was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1976 (who had also recorded Gatlins Help Me in 1973). In 1974 came the release of a new album, Rain/Rainbow, and a new song Delta Dirt. The album and single proved more successful. Delta Dirt was a Top 20 Country hit, peaking at No. 14. The song was also Gatlins only entry on the Pop charts, when it reached No. 84. In 1975, Gatlin had his first major hit with his composition Broken Lady, which reached No. 5 on the Hot Country Songs chart in 1976. Gatlin won a Grammy Award for the song in 1977 for Best Country Song. A new album, High Time, was released in 1976. Gatlin is also credited on guitar on Willie Nelsons 1976 album The Troublemaker.[citation needed]Brothers Steve and Rudy made their first appearance on Larrys 1976 album Larry Gatlin with Family & Friends. They were featured on some of Gatlins other hits he had during the late 1970s, notably I Dont Wanna Cry, Love Is Just a Game, and Statues Without Hearts. In 1978, Gatlin scored his first number one hit with I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love. Gatlin continued his success as a solo artist up until 1978, when he released his last solo album, Oh Brother, which featured the top 10 hits Ive Done Enough Dyin Today and Night Time Magic, the latter of which also made an entry into the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. Both songs spotlighted Gatlins soaring falsetto that became a trademark of his vocal style.In 1977, Gatlin joined entrepreneur Larry Schmittou and other country music stars, such as Conway Twitty, Jerry Reed, Cal Smith, and Richard Sterban, as investors in the Nashville Sounds, a minor league baseball team of the Double-A Southern League that began play in 1978.With the Gatlin BrothersIn 1979, when Gatlin signed with Columbia Records, he decided to officially have his brothers billed on his singles and on his albums. That year, their name was officially Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers. In October, they released the album Straight Ahead. It spawned the classic single All the Gold in California, which became their biggest hit together, reaching No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs list. This was Gatlins second number one hit and led to his being awarded Top Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music that year. On June 6, 1980, Straight Ahead was certified gold.The groups next big hit came in early 1980, with Take Me To Your Lovin Place, which peaked at No. 5 in 1981, they followed up with What Are We Doin Lonesome, which peaked at No. 4 later in the year. They continued their hit success, having top 10 and top 20 hits with In Like With Each Other (1982), She Used to Sing on Sunday (1982), Sure Feels Like Love (1982), Almost Called Her Baby By Mistake (1983), and Denver (1984). In 1983, the group had their third (and last) No. 1 hit, Houston (Means Im One Day Closer to You). On January 19, 1985, the Gatlin Brothers sang All the Gold in California at the nationally-televised 50th Inaugural Gala, the day before the second inauguration of Ronald Reagan. Even though the group never achieved another No. 1 hit, they had hits that came close, like the jaunty release in 1986, She Used to Be Somebodys Baby (which peaked at No. 2), as well as 1987s Talkin to the Moon, and 1988s Love of a Lifetime (both of which peaked at No. 4).The Gatlin Brothers were also one of the first country groups to have music videos, like 1984s The Lady Takes the Cowboy Everytime. In 1985, Gatlin wrote the song Indian Summer with Barry Gibb, which he recorded as a duet with Roy Orbison. In 1989, the Gatlin Brothers sang National Anthem before game three of the 1989 World Series, played at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California. (Incidentally, the Loma Prieta earthquake hit just after their National Anthem playing, and the game was played 10 days later at the same site.)[citation needed] They had also sung the National Anthem at Game 5 of the 1985 World Series at Busch Memorial Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, and would do so again at Game 6 of the 2005 NBA Finals at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.[citation needed]Later workGatlins chart success declined greatly when a new breed of Neotraditional country singers entered Nashville around 1986. New stars like Dwight Yoakam and Randy Travis pushed Gatlin and other Countrypolitan vocalists out of the Top 10. He had a duet recording in 1987 with another Country-Pop styled singer, Janie Fricke. However, their duet only reached No. 21. He briefly signed with Universal Records in 1989, where he recorded his last singles. His last charted single came in 1989, called Number One Heartache Place. Gatlin underwent surgery on his vocal cords in 1991 after the years of wear and tear on his voice. In concert, he had begun to struggle with the high falsetto notes that were featured prominently in many of his songs. After recovery, Gatlin worked briefly with an opera coach to rebuild his voice and his vocals took on a powerful operatic style.Gatlin (left) playing cards with Seabees in Croatia after a performance in 1995After more than a decade of singing together, in December 1992, the Gatlin Brothers embarked on a farewell tour before retiring to their own theater in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Gatlin went on to star in the Broadway production of The Will Rogers Follies. In 1994, Gatlin and his brothers opened a 2,000-seat theater in Myrtle Beach. In 1995, he played himself in the TV-movie about Dottie Wests life, Big Dreams & Broken Hearts: The Dottie West Story. West had died four years before in a major car accident.Gatlin co-wrote with celebrity biographer Jeff Lenburg a memoir called All the Gold in California that was published in 1998. In 1999 Gatlin toured and entertained troops of the 1st CAV division in Bosnia.Since 2010, Gatlin has contributed to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network as a political and social commentator. In 2010, Gatlin acted as substitute host for Don Imus on Imus in the Morning and Fox Across America with Spencer Hughes on March 16, 2011.
