Tompall Glaser, an original Nashville outlaw, dies

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tompall Glaser, a country music singer and publisher best known for his association with the outlaw movement, has died. He was 79.

Louis Glaser, Tompall Glaser's nephew, says the singer passed away early Tuesday morning in Nashville, Tenn., after a long illness.

Glaser would never achieve the success of contemporaries like Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings but was a key player in the rebellion they started against Music Row in the early 1970s. He appeared on "Wanted! The Outlaws," a 1976 compilation that also included Nelson and Jennings and became country music's first platinum-selling album.

Originally breaking through with his brothers, the singer refused to conform to the Nashville system of business and over time opened his own publishing company and studio where some of Jennings' landmark albums were recorded.
