You'd be hard-pressed to overlook Glenn
Cummings. But, just in case you did, here's more about country music's newest - and BIGgest (literally - he stands six-foot-five!!)
Growing Up Glenn:
Glenn Cummings knew it was his calling
to entertain audiences! By the time he was seven, he was performing professionally with his mother Yvonne and brother David.
The trio performed all over his home state of Florida and from there, Glenn appeared on various televisions shows through
Having been influenced with the likes of such heavyweights as Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, and
Montgomery Gentry, Glenn set out to pursue his own dream of making it in the country music industry.
After a few years,
things started to get real BIG for Glenn - even before his debut single hit radio, he'd already made an impressive
entrance when he attended two events in 2004: Country Radio Seminar-35 and the CMA Music Festival (at the latter event, he
signed OVER 1,000 photos for fans!!). Soon after "Big" hit radio, Glenn released his debut album of the same name. The music
will speak for itself, but it's his genuine respect and appreciation for his fans that will keep them coming back! In fact,
fans packed by the droves to see him during the 2005 CMA Music Festival! Having released his singles "Big" and "Good Old Days,"
Glenn's booth was on fire! The same week, he also smoked up the Riverfront Stages AND world renowned Tootsie's Orchid
Lounge!! Looks like Glenn is going to find more BIG things around the corner!!

"Good Old Days," the follow-up
single to "Big," shot out of the starting gates in the first week that it went for adds. The single delivered 29 radio station
adds in just a week. Of those 29 adds, 16 were for Music Row reporters, 2 were Billboard Monitored and 11 were R&R Indicator
stations, which puts "Good Old Days" in the R&R Indicator New and Active position as well as being one of the most added
on the R&R Indicator. "Good Old Days" has far surpassed the initial radio adds experienced by "Big."
Glenn is assisting
UNICEF with the relief effort for the tsunami victims and survivors. He is donating half of the proceeds from all his online
merchandise sales to UNICEF.

** Most artists listen to songs pitched to
them at home, in a manager's office or a car, but not Glenn. He likes to put on his headphones, climb on his 4-wheeler and
ride. This is exactly how he found his debut single, "Big." Glenn explains: "I was out riding my ATV with my headset on.
When 'Big' came on, I stopped my bike and rewound the song and continued to play it over and over again. I fell in love with
the song, drove home and pulled my wife out of the shower and made her listen to it. I knew I had to have 'Big' as my first

** Glenn has been riding ATV's
for about 10 years. It's his stress reliever and a means for him to wind down after being on the road promoting his album,
Big. He currently owns a Bombardier DS 650, a 1998 souped-up Yamaha Banshee with a 550 motor kit and a Honda 300ex
that his wife, Paula, rides. Although he has been involved in several accidents, none were serious enough to make him want
** Besides performing for audiences all over the country, one of Glenn's favorite parts about being in the
music business is meeting those people who attend his shows - his fans!! Proof: during this summer's CMA Music Fest, Glenn
signed autographs until every single one of his 1,000 pictures ran out!!
** Glenn and Paula own a mortgage company
in their home state of Florida!
