Nashville, Tenn. (March 23, 2016) - This past weekend at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, headliner Brad Paisley ushered in some classic country to help him close the show.  Near the end of the concert, country music legends Larry and Rudy Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers joined Paisley onstage for a performance of the brothers' #1 hit song, "Houston."
"This past weekend was incredible and one of the highlights of my life," says Larry.  "Playing onstage with Brad in front of 75,000 people at the Houston Astrodome was pretty dang cool.  I wrote Brad a song after we left.  It's called 'The Magician.'  After listening to this song, you'll know the way I feel about him."

Larry adds, "PS, while brother Rudy and I were having a great time with Brad in Houston, brother Steve was home in Nashville nursing a brand new hip. That's why he wasn't with us in Houston in case anyone was wondering!"
