I'm looking for a gospel lyrics contest. Am I at the right place? I love writing for the Lord, but can't find anybody to help me. I don't do music...Only lyrics.

Larry was very instrumental in encouraging me in my beginning days of songwriting. He did some critiques for me that were very instructive to me, and he also did an excellent demo for me. I have read his book several times and have recommended it to others. You can't go wrong trusting your songs to Larry Petree. I still pray for him everyday

Where can we get some of your sermons?????? If they are anything like your songs, they gotta be good.

Merle and Marty have nothing on you. A plus for you is the spirit of the almighty in that voice. It is God...awesome. Your songs cannot be nothing but anointed of HIM. Thanks for the music I have of yours, and it's brought many tears and much uplifted hands. May God restore what the locusts got at. I love you Larry

Larry, you are one of the most anointed songwriters in Southern Gospel music.

Carol & Roy Ely said:   March 27, 2008 6:29 pm PST
Roy and I met you at Shoney's here in Corbin in 1991, you were with Bro. Ron Smith (who is Roy's first cousin) you had been to sing at his church. We brought your cassette from you in Shoney's and every song on it was great, Touching Me Touching You is one of the greatest songs ever written, I want to thank you so much for obeying the Lord and being a leader and mentor in song to us. It is hard to find Christian mentors today and you are definitely one of the great ones.

Maleah Nelsen said:   March 27, 2008 6:28 pm PST
