Mark Wayne Glasmire is an American country music singer and songwriter. Glasmire worked as a construction worker while trying to break into the country music scene, self-producing a number of CDs and EPs throughout the 1980s and '90s. In 2009 Glasmire released Life Goes On, a 12-song CD co-produced by John Albani, who had also worked with Steve Azar, Monty Holmes and Randy Boudreaux, which led to Glasmire sharing stages with other country music acts such as Dierks Bentley and Guy Clark.[1] In mid-2012, he released a seven-track EP, also co-produced by Albani, which included "I Like You", a single that had reached number one on the European charts and spent nine weeks at the number one slot on the International Country HotDisc Chart in July and August 2011.[2][3] The video for "I Like You" was produced by Harold Jarboe (Bell-Jarboe Films) and shot in Nashville’s historic Hillsboro Village and features Vanderbilt University students as extras.[3]

Glasmire grew up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and he relates his "first 14 years were filled with church activities. My mom sang in the choir and the church was really our whole social life"[4] He acquired his first guitar at ten, but didn't learn to play well until his high school years. Glasmire finished college with a degree in business administration and moved to New York City, then Nashville and Dallas before settling in Arlington, Texas.[4]
