Country music legend Larry Gatlin spent some time with his longtime friend and presidential hopeful Donald Trump over the weekend. The Trump campaign tapped Larry and brothers Rudy and Steve to perform at his Nashville-area campaign stop on Saturday. Larry Gatlin also served as the event’s MC.
In front of a packed house at The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers performed the national anthem along with several of their hit songs before the real estate mogul took the stage. Trump later called Larry back to the stage to give a little history on their friendship. Watch the video clip courtesy of The Tennessean HERE.
“I was the MC and the brothers and I sang at the Donald Trump event over the weekend in Nashville. It was good to see my old friend, Donald,” says Larry. “I honored my commitment to Governor Bush and Governor Huckabee, also old friends, that I would not tell anybody who to vote for—I do not have the right to do that. I would advise everyone to do their homework. Listen, read, study, pray… then vote their hearts. GOD BLESS AMERICA!”
