Larry Turner is a singer who has performed professionally since 1976. His career started in gospel music as a soloist and also as lead singer for “The Lad’s” quartet. In the early 1990s, Precious Moments contacted him to start and produce a music show for the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO. He served in that capacity for 11 years. During that time he had the privilege to meet George Strait’s father and was given the highest approval when he was told that he had a strong resemblance to his son. While he & his wife, Beverly, were on vacation in Las Vegas, they saw Legends in Concert and the seed was planted. The next hurdle to face was learning to sing country, since his background was in gospel. His work has been paying off, as he has been met with rave reviews. The Laughlin Nevada Entertainer magazine has written “by all counts, the man portraying “King George” does him justice.” He has also been designated as “the best George Strait tribute artist in the country.”
Larry feels that it is truly an honor to impersonate such a legend as George Strait. George has been performing for over twenty-five years and has a record 57 number one country singles. He was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and in 2008 was named “Artist of the Decade.” Some of his classics are, ” All My Exes Live In Texas”, “Amarillo By Morning”, “The Chair.” He continues to turn out hits, and shows no signs of slowing down.
