Larry Gatlin is on a mission to recover his lone Grammy, which he won in 1977 for Best Country Song for “Broken Lady.”
Larry told the Tennessean that the trophy was stolen from the Gatlin Bros. Music City grill in the Mall of America in the 1990s.
“In this charged, heated atmosphere of politics that we live in . . . where I believe that very little is viewed through the prism of what is true and what is right and wrong . . . I have a question for someone in America out there,” Larry says. “You have Larry Gatlin’s Grammy for ‘Broken Lady’ for Song of the Year. It’s on your mantel or somewhere in your house. What do you tell people when they come over and ask you how you got Larry Gatlin’s Grammy?”
After more than 20 years, Larry just wants his Grammy back—no questions asked, no charges pressed.
“I’ll give you a written statement that I won’t prosecute you,” says Larry. “You can just say you bought it at a pawn shop.”
There’s a monetary reward as well. Anyone with information can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
