Glen Payne

Glen Payne started his gospel music career in 1944 with Frank Stamps and the Stamps-Baxter Quartet. With the exception of a 2 year stint in the U.S. Army, that is what he has done for 48 years. He joined with Rex Humbard and the Weatherford Quartet, and later was a member of the Cathedral Trio, which was featured on the Rex Humbard Cathedral of Tomorrow Television ministry. In 1964 the Cathedral Quartet was formed, and in 1969 Glen Payne took his Cathedral Quartet into full time concert ministry and saw the group become one of the most popular and highly award-winning groups in Southern Gospel music. Diversifying his interests, he has been a partner and investor in a gospel music song publishing company, part owner of Pine-brook Studio in Anderson, Indiana, and part owner of Homeland Record Co. of Nashville. Glen Payne possesses a unique voice and style of singing, he is an astute businessman and a premier quartet manager who will soon celebrate a half century of active ministry around the world in gospel music.
