Someone has something of Larry Gatlin's and he wants it back!  The 1970's and 1980's country (and sometimes pop) singer, songwriter is trying a transparent approach to getting his Grammy Award back; he's offering a reward along with a written promise that he won't prosecute over the action - a "no questions asked" offer.

The question is simple to Gatlin:

"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?”

The 1977 Grammy for "Broken Lady" - the Song of the Year - was stolen from Larry Gatlin's Twin Cities-based restaurant sometime in the 1990's. The Music City Grill was located in the Mall of America in Bloomington.  Gatlin is offering a cash reward and a promise of a written guarantee that he won't prosecute the returner.

At the same time, he's also trying to recover a black leather coat that was custom made by Nashville-tailor Manuel; that coat turned up missing from a car in Las Vegas.
