Jim Glaser sings “Woman, Woman”
James William Glaser was born on December 16, 1937 in Spalding, Nebraska.
Glaser left his family’s 1200-acre farm at age nineteen to travel the world with famed singer Marty Robbins. Jim and his two brothers (Tompall and the Glaser Brothers) won nearly every group award country music had to offer.
The Glaser Brothers travelled with the Marty Robbins show for three years, and it’s Jim’s tenor voice you hear on Marty’s classic, “El Paso.” Some of the first country performers to appear in Las Vegas, Marty Robbins and Tompall and the Glaser Brothers had a six-week run at the Showboat Casino in 1960.
In the early 1980s, Jim began recording as a solo artist for the newly- formed independent label, Noble Vision Records. Their first release, “When You’re Not A Lady,” still holds the record for being the most successful first release of a new label, staying on the national charts for 34 weeks.
In 1983, Jim’s first solo album, “The Man In The Mirror,” was then released. It quickly entered Billboard’s chart, where it remained for more than a year and a half. In all, six top-twenty singles were pulled from that landmark album. The next year, Glaser was voted “Top New Male Vocalist of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music.
On April 6, 2019, Jim passed away. His family shares this message:
“We come to you with great sadness and heavy hearts this morning to let you know that Jim passed away last night from a heart attack. He leaves us with years and years of wonderful memories and great music. A heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for supporting Jim and his music all of these years. He loved and appreciated you all very much.”
