As a working musician in Nashville since 1983, Glen has performed both live and in the studio with numerous artists. Since July 1990, he worked most frequently with country legend (and CMA Hall of Fame member) Jean Shepard. For over 25 years most weekends found him playing guitar on WSM’s “Grand Ole Opry” . In his many years of association with the Opry, he has performed with and alongside the legends of country music as well as many of the newer hit-makers of the day.
Growing up in a musical family in a small town in Mississippi, Glen’s experiences included Saturday night “musicals” and Sunday morning Gospel. His dad was a fiddler / guitar player who exposed him at an early age to “old time fiddling” and Chet Atkins records. Glen was influenced by it all and very soon was playing guitar for country bands and gospel groups all over that part of the country.
In 1983 he made the move to Music City and since that time has enjoyed working with professionals both on stage and in the studio. Highlights include playing lead guitar for the Classic Country show at the CMA Festival in Nashville and performing with several artists on the 2012 “Grand Ole Opry Cruise”. TV appearances have included Grand Ole Opry Live, Opry Encore, and “Larry's Country Diner”.
