Larry and his two younger brothers grew up in Texas, singing together at church and sometimes on the radio. Larry led the group, and sometimes included his brothers names, Steve and Rudy, on his recordings.
He had an early and influential connection with Dottie West, who helped Larry and the boys get started. She bought airline tickets, and recorded some of his songs.
All together, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin brothers placed thirty three singles in the top forty, including, “Broken Lady”, “All the Gold in California” and “Houston”.
Join me next Saturday, March 24 at 9:20 for more with Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers.
