The second performance of the Kent State Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center’s Summer Series features country legend Larry Gatlin on July 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Gatlin will present a solo show, Will the Real Larry Gatlin Please Sit Down!, performing his hits with an acoustic guitar and sharing memorable stories from his life and career.
Gatlin rose to fame as Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers. The close family harmonies of Larry, Rudy and Steve Gatlin gave the trio a signature sound that led to country classics like “Houston (Means I’m One Day Closer To You).” The brothers won a GRAMMY Award for their 1976 breakthrough hit, “Broken Lady,” and reached #1 with “I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love” two years later. Along with five career nominations for the ACM Vocal Group, the Gatlin Brothers picked up three 1979 trophies – Single of the Year (“All The Gold In California”), Album of the Year (Straight Ahead) and Male Vocalist of the Year for Larry. To date, the brothers hold 36 Top 40 Hits to their credit.
Tickets are $27 to $42 and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at www.kent.edu/tusc/pac or by calling 330-308-6400. The box office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free parking is available for all shows.
