Tompall Glaser began his music career with his brothers Chuck and Jim in the group "Tompall & the Glaser Brothers" in the 1950s. They scored several hits on the country charts and were known for their close harmony singing. In the 1970s, Tompall became a central figure in the outlaw country movement, which rebelled against the mainstream country music of the time.

In 1972, Tompall and his brothers Chuck and Jim founded the record label "Hillbilly Central" in Nashville, which became a haven for outlaw country artists such as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Tompall's solo album "The Outlaw" was released in 1976 and cemented his reputation as a rebel in the country music scene. The album featured the hit single "Put Another Log on the Fire (Male Chauvinist National Anthem)".

Tompall Glaser continued to record and perform throughout the 1980s and 1990s, but his influence on the outlaw country movement remained strong. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012, shortly before his death the following year at the age of 79.
