Black River signs artist

Tuesday, July 19, 2011 – Glen Templeton signed with Black River Entertainment, the label announced Monday.

Templeton's current single, I Could Be The One, was released in May. The music video will make its debut in the coming weeks at both online and TV outlets. Templeton's upcoming self-titled album will include the song and a special guest performance by Leon Russell. The album was produced by Mark Lambert (Leon Russell, Elton John, Willie Nelson and Ronnie Milsap). No release date was set.

Originally from Tuscaloosa, Ala., Templeton worked Nashville's honky tonks while singing for tips on Lower Broadway. Templeton also spent part of his career headlining the house band at the various Cowboy's Dancehalls in Texas. In 2008, Templeton was selected by Conway Twitty's family to portray the part of Conway in the musical "It's Only Make Believe," which tells the life story of the country music legend.

The label also has Craig Morgan, Sarah Darling, Due West and Jeff Bates.
