The Blackwood Quartet, one of the most beloved gospel groups of all time, joins forces with country great Larry Gatlin for a special night of classic country gospel. Initially formed as The Blackwood Brothers Quartet in 1934, the Grammy-winning group has reconfigured over the years but has always maintained great acclaim for their reverent style and for their many praise hits like “Learning To Lean” and “The Night Before Easter” – forever bringing the word of Christ through song. They’ve had the pleasure of performing with many country legends including Larry Gatlin, and their popularity among country-western fans just grows and grows. Larry Gatlin, the eldest of the three Gatlin Brothers, first sang with his family in church before honing his impressive songwriting skills and helping form The Gatlin Brothers. They became a household name touring extensively throughout North America and overseas, racking up hit after hit and some of the most prestigious awards in the industry. Larry penned every Gatlin Brothers hit you’ve ever heard, including “All The Gold In California” and “Houston” – instant classics that were later recorded by Elvis, Glen Campbell, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Cash and Charlie Rich. Join Larry Gatlin and The Blackwood Quartet for a special night of gospel at the Spencer Theater, where praise music meets country with mountain top appeal.
