Larry Gatlin
This quote was submitted in Monday 24 November 2014.

'My friend Gene Watson is, without a doubt, one of the very best country singers - ever!

On top of that, he is a good 'Sumbich'.

In Texas, that is considered a great compliment.



When he sang 'Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall', with me on 'Country Family Reunion', it was one of the really coolest things in my life.

I just love my friend, the one and only Gene Watson'.

Thank you, Larry Gatlin, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Larry Gatlin...

Larry Gatlin was born Larry Wayne Gatlin, in Seminole, Texas on Sunday 2 May 1948 and was raised listening to country music and gospel music.

Since childhood, Larry Gatlin and his brothers, Steve Gatlin (born on Wednesday 4 April 1951) and Rudy Gatlin (born on Wednesday 20 August 1952), have always sung and performed together. When they were younger, they often sang in their local church. They sometimes performed on local radio stations, and occasionally on television shows. The Gatlin Brothers also recorded a gospel music album for the gospel music label Sword and Shield Records.

The Gatlin Brothers even managed to beat out the legendary Roy Orbison (Thursday 23 April 1936 - Tuesday 6 December 1988) in a local talent contest around this same time. After graduating from Odessa High School in 1966, Larry Gatlin attended college at the University of Houston. A wide receiver on the football team, he caught a touchdown pass in a game in which the University of Houston scored one hundred points.

Larry Gatlin later auditioned for, and joined the gospel music group, The Imperials, who went on to perform in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 1971 at Jimmy Dean's Las Vegas Revue. While walking through the showroom, Larry Gatlin caught legendary country singer Dottie West's attention when she thought he looked like Mickey Newbury (Sunday 19 May 1940 - Sunday 29 September 2002).

Dottie West (Tuesday 11 October 1932 - Wednesday 4 September 1991) soon met Larry and was impressed with his songwriting skills, so impressed, in fact, that she recorded two of Larry Gatlin's compositions in 1971, 'You're The Other Half Of Me' and 'Once You Were Mine'.

Dottie West (Tuesday 11 October 1932 - Wednesday 4 September 1991) recorded Larry Gatlin's 'You're The Other Half Of Me' and included the track on 'Have You Heard...Dottie West' (RCA Records, 1971).

Dottie West (Tuesday 11 October 1932 - Wednesday 4 September 1991) recorded Larry Gatlin's 'Once You Were Mine' and included the track on 'Have You Heard...Dottie West' (RCA Records, 1971).

Dottie West (Tuesday 11 October 1932 - Wednesday 4 September 1991) also passed one of Larry Gatlin's demo tapes around Nashville and arranged for him to relocate there, purchasing a plane ticket for him - a story he related on an episode of 'Larry's Country Diner' on RFD-TV in November 2009.

Dottie West (Tuesday 11 October 1932 - Wednesday 4 September 1991) later recorded other compositions by Larry Gatlin that would later become hits for him, including 'Broken Lady', which was included on Dottie West's 'Dottie' (Records, 1978).

Dottie West (Tuesday 11 October 1932 - Wednesday 4 September 1991) recorded Larry Gatlin's 'Broken Lady' and included the track on 'Dottie' (United Artists Records, 1978).

Larry Gatlin became known for his rich tenor voice and for the string of pop-inflected hit songs he wrote and recorded throughout the 1970s and 1980s. During this time, country music trended heavily towards polished pop music arrangements in a style that came to be known as 'countrypolitan'. Larry Gatlin And The Gatlin Brothers Band came to prominence and enjoyed their greatest success during this period with hit singles that showcased the brothers' powerful three-part harmonies and Larry Gatlin's evocative falsetto voice.

With Dottie West's help, Larry Gatlin found work in Nashville as a background singer for Kris Kristofferson.
