Alabama-born Glen Templeton has a voice straight out of classic country. Even the Twitty family took notice back in 2008, selecting him out of over 20,000 hopefuls to play Conway in a musical about the legend.
Below is a performance of Glen performing the Conway hit 'Goodbye Time'. If you're a Conway fan, we think it's fair to say this cover is one of a scant few that hold a candle to the original.
He's toured with George Jones, appeared on the Opry, the Ryman, CMT, and not to mention has obtained a long list of impressive shows.
Nowadays, Glen is a full-time touring musician based out of Nashville.
"I’m not sure I chose country music," Glen explained in a 2011 interview. "In a way it kind of chose me [...]It just kept pulling on me, no matter what the cost was at the time."
And that's exactly the kind of drive that you can immediately sense in Glen's music.
To put it simply, we love Glen Templeton. It's not just because he sounds like an old country star, which is something lacking in today's country music, but his original music is equally amazing.
"I have lived my songs," Glen explains.
Here's a fun, must-listen Glen original called 'Country Boys For Life'. The catchy tune, in a nutshell, encompasses Glen's outlook and approach to not only his music, but his life as a whole.
Favorite lines in the song: "We're like dirt road soldiers born to ride / With a cowboy's attitude / Schooled in the deep end / Of life feeling bulletproof / We were hard-core / And we swore down on the riverside / There'd be dark blue collars / We're muddy wter scholars / Country boys for life."
We dare you not to get this song stuck in your head!
