DALLAS— Singer, actor, performer and native Texan Larry Gatlin performs for the fall spotlight event for the Brookhaven College School of the Arts.

Gatlin made a name for himself as a country artist, topping the country charts with “Broken Lady” in 1976. Gatlin went on to win the Academy of Country Music’s coveted Top Male Vocalist of the Year award in 1979. He later joined up with his brothers to form the country-infused Gatlin Brothers Band, who released hits like “She Used to be Somebody’s Baby,” “Talkin’ to the Moon” and “Denver.”

Since his band’s “Adios Tour” in 1992, Gatlin has taken his career to new heights. In 1993, he tried out acting, replacing Keith Carradine on the Broadway cast of “Will Rogers Follies.” He added author to his resume in 1998, when he released his autobiography All the Gold in California.

Don’t miss the chance to see a country legend on stage. Watch Gatlin live at 8 p.m. Aug. 29 in the Performance Hall at Brookhaven College.
