About Lillian

Lillian Claire Glanton was born in a small town named Athens, Alabama. She was raised on a poultry and cattle farm.  As a little girl, Lillian loved music. Her influences range from Dolly Parton, Dixie Chicks, Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain. At the age of 8, she started taking guitar lessons. By the age of 10, she was writing and charting her own songs.  At the age of 13, she was traveling back and forth to the heart town of country music, Nashville, Tennessee to network with some of the biggest people in the business. At the age of 14, Lillian decided to record her own songs. She went to FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and paid for her recording time with her black baldy cattle she had sold. At the age of 15, she decided she wanted to take her music career a step further by auditioning for the hit TV show American Idol. Lillian received the “golden ticket” and flew to Hollywood to be a part of the show. Her fan base grew rapidly after her TV audition and is still continuing to grow today. After coming home from Hollywood, Lillian then graduated high school a year early and started college at 16 years old in the field of the music business and recording industry. At 19, Lillian formed the Muscle Shoals Songwriters Association and created the Muscle Shoals Songwriters Festival which is set to appear in October of 2019. Lillian has accomplished so much, including playing in Nashville with some of the best songwriters in town. She has dozens of songs under her belt. Lillian has an old soul and a heart of gold. She reflects that in her lyrics. Her sweet southern charm and character wants to take the world by storm. Lillian also wants to be a role model for her generation and beyond. 


  “I write songs to make people laugh, cry, remember, or even forget.” “I just want to make a connection with my music and be a voice for those who need it most.” “No matter where this journey takes me, I will never lose sight of the love I have for country music and how powerful it can be." –Lillian
