BMI Mourns the Loss of Tompall Glaser

Posted in News on August 16, 2013

Country singer, publisher, studio owner and longtime Broadcast Music, Inc. member Tompall Glaser passed away Tuesday, August 13, 2013, at the age of 79. A pioneer of the outlaw movement alongside Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson, Glaser rebelled against commercial, formulaic country and opened his own publishing company and recording studio that was soon aptly dubbed “Hillybilly Central.” Featured with Nelson and Jennings on one of country music’s first million-selling albums, Wanted! The Outlaws, Glaser also co-wrote Bobby Bare’s immensely successful “The Streets of Baltimore.” He will be sorely missed by his friends and fans at BMI.
