Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers (unplugged) with Special Guest Nathan Stanley — A Benefit for the Appalachian College of Pharmacy
May 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Over 50 years ago, Larry, Steve, and Rudy Gatlin started singing in their little hometown of Abilene, Texas, and from there went on to make music history. Over their four-decade career, that has taken them from dusty Texas stages to White House performances, from Broadway to Grammy Awards to the top of the country charts, there has been one unifying element, music. There’s no harmony quite as pure as family harmony. “Gatlin harmonies spin with high and light precision and their music bleeds and screams of love and a lot of living.” Said Country Capsule.
By 1976, the Gatlin Brothers were in the fast lane, thanks to the chart-topping success of the Grammy Award-winning “Broken Lady.” The hits continued throughout the rest of the decade, including their signature song, “All the Gold in California,” soon to be followed by “Houston (Means I’m One Day Closer to You).” The number one hits continued throughout the next decade with “I Don’t Wanna Cry,” “I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love,” “Statues Without Hearts,” “Love is Just a Game,” and “Night Time Magic.” In addition to being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1976, the trio was nominated for awards by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music and the Music City News Awards, among others.
Come to the Paramount on Friday, May 25 to hear the legendary Gatlin Brothers sing their top hits from the 1970s, 1980s and today, in a display of pure talent that has lit up major marquees and packed concert halls across America for more than 50 years.
Opening for the Gatlin Brothers is Nathan Stanley. Dubbed the Prince of Bluegrass, he has been performing since the age of two when he played the spoons with his grandfather’s band The Clinch Mountain Boys at the Grand Ole Opry. He later graduated to playing the mandolin, and in 2007 became lead singer and rhythm guitar player. He has nine solo albums to his credit. In his performance, he pays homage to his home, history and family.
This event is for the benefit of the health and educational programs of the Appalachian College of Pharmacy. Located in Southwest Virginia, The Appalachian College of Pharmacy offers a three-year doctor of pharmacy program, and is committed to serving the needs of rural and underserved communities in Appalachia as well as throughout the world.
