Glenn Sulley
Glenn Sulley
Glenn Sulley was born and raised in Newfoundland, an island located on the eastern coast of Canada. His musical roots stem from both of his parents, his mother was a singer and his father played guitar. As a young boy, he sang in church and in his grade school choir. It wasn’t until ninth grade, that he got interested in learning to play the guitar and writing songs. “My father taught me two chords, and in a short time, I managed to teach myself the rest.”

As a teenager, he was lead singer for several pop and rock and roll bands, and acted and sang in various musical theater shows. As a young adult, he toured and recorded with an Irish Celtic band, “The Clancy’s.” He also performed solo gigs throughout eastern and central Canada. He has performed the “Star Spangled Banner” on national T.V. for the NBA, NHL, and the (WTA) Women’s Tennis Association. He has written and performed several radio and T.V. commercial jingles, both in Canada and throughout Oklahoma. He has won two “Silver Mike” awards for local (Oklahoma) and national jingle work, received “honorable mention” in two national songwriting contests, and many of his original compositions have been performed and recorded by various musicians, both in the U.S. and Canada. Recently, one of his original songs was published in “Chalice Praise”, a contemporary Christian songbook. Several of his original songs, also appear on a compilation he recorded with local Christian band, "Walking Temple."

He is currently the “band/worship leader” for the contemporary service at First Christian Church in Edmond.

He lives in Oklahoma City, with his two sons, Colton and Cooper. Glenn is a graduate of Southern Nazarene University and is employed at OU Physicians.

His most recent project was a recording of original music, titled, “Glory Road.” He recorded this CD with his music partner, David Sisson. Glenn and David currently perform as a duo at venues within the Oklahoma City area.

Glenn really enjoys singing at the Opry, and especially has a “blast”, when he occasionally performs with his “musical buddy”, Marty Summers.
Jillian Sulley
Jillian Sulley
Jillian Sulley grew up in Broken Arrow, OK where she began singing at the age of 12 with the Oklahoma Bluegrass Music Association. Jillian’s love of music allowed her to perform for nearly a decade with the ‘Opry Gang’ band in festivals and community events around the Tulsa metro.

After college, Jillian began work in the field of Emergency Management and now works as the Emergency Manager for Devon Energy in Oklahoma City supporting U.S. Operations.

Jillian has restored her love for music by singing at The Centennial Rodeo Opry in Oklahoma City and turning the duo, Sulley & Sisson into a trio. She is grateful for her husband, known musician Glenn Sulley, and her family for supporting her desire to sing. Jillian’s desire is to ‘make people smile through music’ and hopes that sharing her passion will accomplish exactly that.
Marty Summers
Marty Summers
Marty Summers grew up in Cheyenne, a small town in western Oklahoma. As a young boy, he sang at church, school, and family events, but didn't "officially" take the stage until he joined the Rodeo Opry family in 2009. Marty purchased his first acoustic guitar in 2008. Often accompanied by his musical neighbor, Glenn, he began learning songs on his guitar and singing in living room jam sessions.

Marty and his wife, Stephanie, discovered the Rodeo Opry one weekend when looking for a live music show to attend - and they have been fans ever since. About a year after attending their first show, Marty auditioned and has since become a repeat performer.

Marty graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1994 and is currently employed by Devon Energy. He and Stephanie live in SW OKC.
Sydnee Spears
Sydnee Spears
Sydnee Spears is an eight year old from Shawnee, OK, who is a 3rd grader at Liberty Academy in Shawnee. She has been singing since age three and loves to perform. She has held several national talent titles which gave her the opportunity to perform at various schools, town celebrations, civic events and was honored to perform at the Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson, MO. Sydnee takes private voice lessons and loves to sing for the residents at several local retirement, assisted living and nursing facilities with her Nana’s therapy dogs and singing for the congregation at her church. In her spare time, she enjoys being a member of the competitive dance team at Grace Dance Center in Shawnee where she is a part of the jazz and clogging teams. She is most excited to be performing again at the Rodeo Opry!!
Wayne Cantwell
Wayne Cantwell
Wayne was born a small child in Oklahoma City until he grew and became quite large. When asked if he has lived in Oklahoma all his life he can honestly say, “Not yet”.

While growing Wayne would irritate his parents by tying strings on sticks and other objects and pluck on them making so much noise they decided to get him a guitar. That not being good enough he started playing fiddle, banjo, mountain dulcimer, as well as other stringed instruments and became quite skilled at scarring off animals both small and larges.

Over the years Wayne has played in different old time and Celtic bands playing as much music as he possibly could. He can read music somewhat but swears not enough to affect his playing.

He plays mostly as a solo performer as most people just don’t want him around, although from time to time other old time or Celtic bands will let him sit in with them.

Wayne is married to a wonderful wife and has 5 great kids who all survived the string band wars of the 1990’s.

He plans some day to strike it rich as an old time and Celtic musician but until then he makes his living by teaching Old Time and Celtic fiddle, basic clawhammer banjo, and mountain dulcimer.
