Singer / Songwriter LARRY MANGUM has logged nearly 3000 performances over the last 4 decades as a folk, rock, country and Americana artist. It's not optional for Larry to play music-it's genetic! For over 100 years somebody from Larry's North Carolina family has been playing. Larry's Uncle, Homer Briarhopper was a radio fixture on WBT Charlotte in the 1930's and had a career on T.V., radio and night clubs for 50 years; Larry's Mom Kate, is a fine singer/guitarist and was also Randy Travis' guitar teacher!
Larry Co-wrote the Lee Greenwood single "Who's That Knocking". Gary Buck, recorded two of Larry's songs, "I Guess I Do" and " We're Going Out Dancing Tonight" and "Gramma's Purple Flowers" is a crowd favorite everywhere.
Larry's concert appearances with music legends are too many to mention but some highlights include the late Waylon Jennings, The Texas Playboys, Billy Joe Shaver, Vasser Clements, Ray Price, Martina McBride, Roger McGuinn, Steve Young, and Alabama.
