Glen Payne (October 20, 1926 - October 15, 1999) served more than 50 years as a Southern gospel music singer. At age 17 in 1944, Glen joined the Stamps-Baxter Quartet. He was also a member of the Lester Stamps Quartet, The Stamps All-Stars, and The Stamps-Ozark Quartet. In 1956 he joined The Weatherford Quartet, which featured Glen, Earl & Lily Fern Weatherford, Armond Morales, and George Younce. Younce was later replaced by Henry Slaughter. This lineup of the Weatherfords is considered by many gospel experts to have been the best singing group in gospel music history.
