BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND - GLEN TEMPLETON

In 2008 GT was hand picked by Conway Twitty's daughters to portray Conway in the touring musical tribute to their father. They first heard about Glen through Joni Twitty's husband, John Wesley Ryles. Ryles, a noted studio background vocalist, had worked with Glen on demo projects. "With more than 20,000 hopefuls auditioning for the part, Joni Twitty finally found a powerful voice capable of conveying many of the same qualities Conway had." "One of he biggest thrills of my life was performing the inaugural show of the musical," explains Templeton. We were still waiting for my wardrobe to be finished for the tour and I actually got to wear some of Conway's old suits. I wore these custom wigs they made for me out in LA. I was singing his songs and hearing people react to them the way they must have reacted to him. In a way, it was like getting a chance to literally walk in the shoes of one of my musical heroes."

Glen has shared the stage with a number of other country music artists as well. In his early Nashville days, he worked the clubs down on lower Broadway. At the world famous Tootsie's, it wasn't uncommon for an "A List" star to hop up on stage to do a few songs with Glen and the band.

After earning a reputation as one of the best singer-songwriters to play the shotgun bars and honkytonks in Nashville, Glen was recruited by Mike Murphy, owner of Cowboy's Dancehall clubs in Texas. He toured the circuit playing to several thousand people each weekend for his own shows and was the opening act for a number of top names in country music.

Never forgetting his old school country roots, Glen cites the shows he performed on tour with George Jones in early 2009 as some of his favorites. He has also appeared on CMT, The Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman, and a long list of regional performance venues. True to his nature, Glen doesn't lose sight of what's important in life: "I've played a lot of places, but I'd have to say some of the most personally rewarding are when I go back home to Alabama and play for hometown people that really care about me and want to see me do well."

Securing a foothold as a performing artist on the country music stage in 2010, Templeton crisscrossed the country playing events such as The ACM's All-Star Jam, Country Jam USA, Cheyenne Frontier Days and numerous state fairs and festivals to perfect his rollicking stage show.


From producers, studio musicians and music industry vets to country radio and its listeners, Glen Templeton has set out to impress and inspire. No bells, no whistles--just straight down the pipe--Glen is genuine in his performance; his studio recordings translate as undeniably and absolute as his live stage show.

Country music may have chosen Glen Templeton, but it won't be long before country music fans all over the country are choosing Glen Templeton's music.
