SPRINGFIELD — Grand Ole Opry star Larry Gatlin has slated an acoustic performance at the Mars Theatre on Sunday at 7 p.m.

Gatlin is known for his rich falsetto singing style and the unique pop-inflected songs he penned and recorded in the 1970s and 1980s. Some of Gatlin's biggest hits include "Broken Lady,” “All the Gold in California,”"Houston (Means I'm One Day Closer to You),” "She Used to Be Somebody's Baby” and "Talkin' to the Moon.”

Combining his solo efforts and as part of a trio with his younger brothers, Steve and Rudy, Gatlin has performed on 33 Top 40 singles.

Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers have been dazzling audiences for more than 60 years. It all began in Abilene, Texas, in 1955, when Larry was six, Steve was four and Rudy was two. Since those days, the road the brothers have plowed has won them countless awards and has taken them to numerous concert halls, festival stages, national television shows and even the White House on several occasions.

Seats are still available but are limited. Tickets are $55 and can be purchased at or by calling 754-1118.

The doors open at 6 p.m.
