Nashville, Tenn. (January 13, 2017) - Legendary country group Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers have been announced to perform at the Black Tie & Boots 2017 Inaugural Ball in Washington D.C. on Thursday, January 19 at 7:00 PM. Held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in the nation's capital, and sponsored by the Texas State Society, the Black Tie & Boots Inaugural Ball is one of the largest events scheduled to take place during the upcoming Inaugural festivities.
