The Masters of the Art – Country Legends Series not only features unparalleled artistry, but also a dedication to community. This group of legendary country pioneers has committed to give back a portion of the proceeds from each show to a specific charity in every city on the series tour. The first stop of the tour will be in Nashville, TN where The Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home & Human Alliance Animal Shelter will benefit from ticket sales.
On October 5, The Masters of the Art – Country Legends Series will stage their premier performance at the Troubadour Theater on Music Valley Drive in Nashville. The series will feature a stellar lineup of some of country music’s most influential performers, songwriters and musicians, including Jim Glaser, Leona Williams, Ron Williams, Robyn Young & Jimmy Payne.
Singer/songwriter and former Grand Ole Opry member, Jim Glaser, along with his brothers Tompall and Chuck, not only paved the way for modern Country Music groups but also won virtually every group award Country Music had to offer. Over the years, Jim has gained notoriety as a prolific songwriter, penning tunes recorded by such greats as Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, Hank Snow, Warner Mack, Liz Anderson, Skeeter Davis, Bill Anderson, to name just a few. He is also co-writer of the Rock and Roll classic by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, “Woman, Woman.”
By the age of 21, Leona Williams was on the road touring with Loretta Lynn. She soon became known for her own brand of music, recording hits such as “Once More,” “Country Girl With Hot Pants On” and her signature song “Yes Ma’am.” She became a regular on the Grand Ole Opry and was known for her writing ability, penning songs for George Jones, Gene Watson, Connie Smith and many others. She was also a regular on the Merle Haggard Show, writing Merle’s #1 hits “You Take Me For Granted” and “Someday When Things Are Good,” and co-writing several others.
Also featured on the show will be recording artist and songwriter, Jimmy Payne as well as second generation traditional country music innovators, Robyn Young, son of country legend Faron Young and singer/songwriter and son of Leona Williams, Ron Williams.
The crowd will also be treated by the amazingly talented daughter of Biff Collie, Sharon, who will be on hand to emcee the evening.

The tour will make several stops across the country, including its next stop at The Orion Performing Arts Center in Topsham, Maine, in November featuring the same great artists.
