Country music singer, songwriter, producer and one of the "Outlaw" movement's pioneers Tompall Glaser died August 13, 2013, at the age of 79. Born in Nebraska, Glaser started his musical career with his two brothers as "Tompall & the Glaser Brothers." They first recorded for Marty Robbins' Robbins label and later also toured with Robbins as well as Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and others. By 1970, they had opened their own studio in Nashville. Glaser was also featured on country music's first million selling album "Wanted: The Outlaws" that also included material by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Jessi Colter.
