Nashville artist and rising star Glen Templeton hits the stage at Scottie's Grill this Saturday, July 21, 2018.

Templeton who like so many musicians had a number of jobs throughout the years, but it was his love of country music that kept tugging at his heart so he moved to Nashville and now he's living out his dream. Having become known as one of the best singer-songwriters to play the Nashville bars and honky-tonks. Several top musicians who frequented some of the bars like the world famous Tootsie's Lounge loved getting up on stage to sing with Glen.

Templeton at an early age was influenced by his father who was also a musician but some of his musical heroes included the late great Conway Twitty. In fact, in 2008 he was selected to play Conway Twitty by one of Conway's daughters for a touring musical tribute. John Wesley Ryles, a well known studio background vocalist and husband of Joni Twitty had already worked with Glen on demo projects. After 20,000 musicians showed up to audition for the part of Conway Twitty, it was Glen Templeton who landed the part because of eerie similar gritty vocal style of the late legend, according to his website.

Templeton opened up for the late George Jones in 2009 as well as countless other country music stars throughout the years. He has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry, CMT, the historic Ryman Auditorium and various other venues and events.
