Dec 19 | Posted by: Absolute Publicity |

Nashville, Tenn. (December 19, 2016) — On December 24, 2016, Christmas Eve, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers will celebrate 40 years as members of the Grand Ole Opry. Brothers Larry, Steve and Rudy will perform on the Opry stage that night, live from Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium.

"Well, I could hardly believe it when it happened that night 40 years ago, and I can hardly believe it 40 years later, that Steve and Rudy and I are members of the greatest family in country music, in all of music for that matter, the Grand Ole Opry," says Larry. "Thank you fans, thank you Grand Ole Opry. Thank you God."

The Christmas Eve Opry starts at 7 PM with tickets available for purchase at the Ryman box office or Opry.com. The show can be heard on 650AM WSM as well as SiriusXM (Channel 59).

The brothers recently released We Say Merry Christmas, their first Christmas album in more than 10 years and are currently in-residence at Gaylord Opryland performing dinner shows at the hotel's A Country Christmas.
