Henry Glover, a Langston High School alumnus, was a pioneering black songwriter, producer, arranger, A&R man, and musician who grew up in Hot Springs. Later he became one of the first black music executives and the first black producer of country music. A few titles in Glover's catalog include: "Fever," "Drown In My Own Tears," "Blues Stay Away From Me," "California Sun," and "The Peppermint Twist."


To help cement Henry's legacy in his hometown, H.S.A.C.A. created a songwriting competition in his honor. This year the contest, emceed by Arkansong's Stephen Koch, features two categories of songwriting, instrumental and songs with lyrics. The Glover Awards will be held on Saturday, April 29th at 6 PM on the Art Springs Stage, presented by Arvest and sponsored by Sharon Turrentine.
