DUSTIN SONNIER
Wednesday, September 19th – 8:00 PM
A country singer and songwriter with a honky tonk sound, a touch of rock & roll attitude, and a Cajun spirit, Dustin Sonnier was born in 1987. He was raised in Vatican, Louisiana, a small town in Lafayette Parish. In his early teens noticed that girls tended to be drawn to musicians. With this in mind, he started playing guitar and singing in a Christian country band.

In March 2016, Sonnier brought out a second EP, Country., which included the track “Whiskey Makes Her Miss Me.” The song, a weeper in the classic style, earned major airplay in Texas, and helped boost Sonnier’s profile on music streaming services. Sonnier followed the success of the Country. EP with a new single in November 2016, “People Like Me.”
GLEN TEMPLETON
Wednesday, September 26th – 8:00 PM
In 2008 GT was hand picked by Conway Twitty’s daughters to portray Conway in the touring musical tribute to their father. They first heard about Glen through Joni Twitty’s husband, John Wesley Ryles. Ryles, a noted studio background vocalist, had worked with Glen on demo projects. “With more than 20,000 hopefuls auditioning for the part, Joni Twitty finally found a powerful voice capable of conveying many of the same qualities Conway had.”Glen has shared the stage with a number of other country music artists as well. In his early Nashville days, he worked the clubs down on lower Broadway. At the world famous Tootsie’s, it wasn’t uncommon for an “A List” star to hop up on stage to do a few songs with Glen and the band.

After earning a reputation as one of the best singer-songwriters to play the shotgun bars and honkytonks in Nashville, Glen was recruited by Mike Murphy, owner of Cowboy’s Dancehall clubs in Texas. He toured the circuit playing to several thousand people each weekend for his own shows and was the opening act for a number of top names in country music.

From producers, studio musicians and music industry vets to country radio and its listeners, Glen Templeton has set out to impress and inspire.  No bells, no whistles–just straight down the pipe–Glen is genuine in his performance; his studio recordings translate as undeniably and absolute as his live stage show.
