Glen Templeton has already made quite a name for himself with his original music and fantastic cover performances of legendary country singers like Conway Twitty. It's no different for his exceptional rendition of Merle Haggard's "Big City". He has one of those classic voices that sound eerily similar to past country icons and it's both amazing and a feast to the ears. In fact, he was handpicked by Conway Twitty's daughters to portray their father in a musical tribute.

We'd be incredibly surprised if you haven't heard of Glen because he's one in a millionThe singer-songwriter is based in Nashville. He released his debut single, "I Could Be The One" in 2011. Each and every one of his performances showcases his talent in a way that keeps his audience hanging on to every last word. According to GlenTempleton.com, Glen said, "I’m not sure I chose country music, in a way it kind of chose me." With a voice like that, there's no doubt in our mind that he was born to sing.

 

"Big City" is actually one of Glen's favorite Merle Haggard songs. It was released in 1982 on Merle's album of the same name. It rocketed the the #1 spot on the country charts. His rendition is phenomenal to say the least - it's to the point that if y'all just sit back and take it in, you almost feel like you're listening to the Hag himself. 


Glen is definitely one y'all should keep an eye on. Follow him on Facebook to do just that.

BIG CITY - LYRICS

I'm tired of this dirty old city
Entirely too much work and never enough play
And I'm tired of these dirty old sidewalks
Think I'll walk off my steady job today

Turn me loose, set me free
Somewhere in the middle of Montanna
And gimme all I've got comin' to me
And keep your retirement
And your so called social security
Big City, turn me loose and set me free

Been working everyday since I was twenty
Haven't got a thing to show for anything I've done
There's folks who never work and they've got plenty
Think it's time some guys like me had some fun

So, turn me loose, set me free
Somewhere in the middle of Montanna
And gimme all I've got comin' to me
And keep your retirement
And your so called social security
Big city, turn me loose and set me free

Yeah, big city, turn me loose and set me free
