Why is this so important?

While there are several different Hall of Fames, they all have a similar purpose - to recognize the importance of an individual or group to an industry to which they have devoted themselves. Hall of Fame induction is reserved for those who made a significant impact during their careers and without whom things would be different today.

When a select group of people involved in country music vote on whether or not to elect a person or group into the Country Music Hall of Fame, it appears that many times their vote is based mainly upon popular name recognition. If an artist has had a handful of "hit" records, that artist stands a good chance of election into the Hall of Fame at some point.

But what about those who changed country music but may not be a household name? What if people within the country music industry know well the importance of those individuals, but the general public is unfamiliar with their accomplishments? Such is the case with The Glaser Brothers - Tompall, Chuck and Jim, who individually and collectively left a significant imprint on country music in Nashville during the 1950's to 1980's.

But don't take our word for what they accomplished - go to

Tompall Glaser/Wanted!! -The Outlaw!! Facebook page

where you will find a document that contains 15 pages of facts about The Glaser Brothers that details awards, publishing recognition, performance information, a list of songs that made the Billboard charts and some of the more than 200 copyrighted songs that were written collectively by Tompall, Chuck and Jim Glaser. Several of these songs were recorded by well-known artists and are easily recognizable by the public. 

In addition, more facts about The Glaser Brothers can be found at

and at The Glaser Brothers web page

After you review their resume of accomplishments, compare them to any other country music group that has existed before or after them. If you then agree that The Glaser Brothers deserve to be recognized for their impressive contributions to the industry that they so deeply love, please sign this petition to make your voice heard by the Country Music Hall of Fame. The Glaser Brothers' accomplishments have been overlooked for far too long. With your help we can rectify this injustice. Please take a few minutes to learn about Tompall, Chuck and Jim Glaser and sign our online petition.

Your opinion counts and it will make a difference!
