Jim Glaser American country singer

James William Glaser is an American country music artist. He was born in Spalding, Nebraska. The brother of country singers Chuck and Tompall Glaser, he has performed as both a solo artist and alongside his two brothers in the group Tompall and the Glaser Brothers. His early career as a backup vocalist included a long stint with singer/songwriter Marty Robbins. Shortly before beginning his solo recording career he had two major hits as songwriter in 1964, the top 5 "What Does it Take" which was recorded by Skeeter Davis and the top 40 "Thanks A Lot For Tryin' Anyway" recorded by Liz Anderson and later covered in albums by Jan Howard and Connie Smith.

Hot Country Songs Weekly chart published by Billboard

Hot Country Songs is a chart published weekly by Billboard magazine in the United States.

RPM was a Canadian music industry publication that featured song and album charts for Canada. The publication was founded by Walt Grealis in February 1964, supported through its existence by record label owner Stan Klees. RPM ceased publication in November 2000.

When "You're Gettinn to Me Again" reached No. 1, Glaser accomplished something that he failed to do with his better-known brother, Tompall. Jim had recorded as part of the trio Tompall and the Glaser Brothers (Chuck Glaser was part of the group as well), and the closest any of their hits came to the top was 1981's "Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)," stopping at No. 2 that July.

A video was produced for "You're Getting to Me Again," and was aired on The Nashville Network, CMT and Great American Country.

Great American Country (GAC) is an American digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by Discovery, Inc. Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, the channel features country music programming including music videos, music performance specials and live concerts, along with country lifestyle entertainment and original lifestyle programming.
