The Gatlin Brothers return to Southwest Virginia

The Gatlin Brothers, Larry, Steve, and Rudy have been performing for 60 years since they were children at the ages of 2, 4, and 6. They grew up in Odessa, Texas with a background in gospel music and have had top hits on the country charts including “All the Gold in California,” “Houston” and “I Don’t Wanna Cry.”WDBJ is reporting that The Gatlin Brothers. will perform at the Harvester Performance Center in Rocky Mount Sunday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. They had to reschedule a 2022 performance at the Virginia Theatre so local fans will be glad the siblings are returning to the Commonwealth to perform in Franklin County.

The Brothers have accumulated 7 #1 Singles, 32 Top 40 Records, 22 Studio Albums and 5 BMI "Million-Air" Awards, with Larry ranking 4th as a solo songwriter with the most self-penned top 40 Billboard Hits. His massive song catalog has been recorded by the Who's Who of entertainers, including Elvis Presley, Barbara Streisand, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Glen Campbell, Kris Kristofferson, Sir Tom Jones, Dottie West, Charlie Rich, Johnny Mathis and dozens of others.

The Gatlins come out of retirement

In 1992 while at the top the brothers prayed and did much soul searching and decided to stop touring. They ended with "The Adios Tour" and an accompanying album release of the same name, which gave the siblings an opportunity to say goodbye to their fans and for the fans to say goodbye to the Gatlins.

"We just thought our time in the spotlight was probably over. We had a great run and are thankful for it. We felt it was someone else's turn in the spotlight." (Larry Gatlin).

Tickets for the Gatlin Brothers Rocky Mount performance go on sale Friday at 10 AM and prices start at $57 at
