The GEM is pleased to present Glen Templeton in Concert on Saturday, September 9 at 7:30 pm.

Glen has developed a large fan following since he was handpicked in 2008 by Conway Twitty's daughters to portray Twitty in a touring musical tribute to their father. "With more than 20,000 hopefuls auditioning for the part, they found a powerful voice capable of conveying many of the same qualities Conway had." Early in his career, Glen developed a reputation as one of the best singer-songwriters playing shotgun bars and honky tonks in Nashville. That talent has propelled him to bigger stages such as The Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman. Now you can hear him in at the GEM in Georgia.

Tickets on sale online, by phone and at the Box Office.

GT, as his friends know him, first felt country music tugging on his soul while growing up in Elrod, Alabama – a town just as small as it sounds. The songs of Merle Haggard, George Jones and Waylon Jennings soundtracked a childhood spent fishing, riding bikes and driving old junk cars on long forgotten back roads. Elrod and nearby Tuscaloosa also provided a chance to get started on stage.  He started small—playing various open mic nights and contests—but it wasn’t long before Glen’s passion to play music was getting in the way of his day job.  "I’ve always felt this pull all of my life,” Glen explains.  “I always kind of say that I didn’t choose to play country music.  Country music kind of chose me.  It just kept pulling and pulling on me, no matter where I was and no matter the cost.”  “People struggle every day with the ups and downs of life and there’s a struggle in this music,” explains Glen. “And I hope people who are everyday, hard-working Americans can relate to it.  There’s a message of hope, good times, crying, loving and leaving and believing.  And I hope they’ll take a piece of it with them when they go.”
