JACKSON, Wyo. — Having a song recorded and performed by Elvis is just a small piece of singer-songwriter Larry Gatlin’s storied career. The recent Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fall inductee has been the primary writer for Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers (now Larry, Steve and Rudy) for decades. He’ll perform a rare and intimate solo show at the Silver Dollar Bar’s “Showroom Session.”
Gatlin was on a football scholarship at the University of Houston when he developed “a love affair with the English Language,” in particular, John Steinbeck. His songwriting talents became known through the industry and led to over a dozen Grammy nominations in his career. In 1979, The Gatlin Brothers won “Single of the Year” and “Album of the Year,” and Larry was named “Male Vocalist of the Year” from the Academy of Country Music. Signature hits include the Grammy-winning “Broken Lady,” “Houston,” and smash hit “All the Gold in California,” which topped the Billboard Country Chart in ’79.
In addition to writing hits for Elvis and his Brothers, Gatlin’s songs have also been recorded by Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Barbra Streisand, Kris Kristofferson, Roy Orbison, and many others.
Twice a year, the Silver Dollar Showroom at the Silver Dollar Bar provides a unique offering for music lovers by hosting a noteworthy singer-songwriter for a special performance. These Showroom Sessions include a wine reception, dinner and show.
