Glen Campbell’s songs such as “Galveston,” “Wichita Lineman,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Southern Nights,” and the chart-topping “Rhinestone Cowboy,” bring us to a comfortable time in the past when songs told a story.
Following brief stints in the 60s touring with the Champs (best known for the hit “Tequila”) and the Beach Boys (replacing Brian Wilson), Campbell’s breakthrough came with “Gentle on My Mind,” which won him a Grammy in 1967. Campbell has since sold 45 million records and accumulated 27 Top 10 singles and a bevy of Gold and Platinum albums. He’s garnered numerous honors and trophies including CMA’s and ACM’s Male Vocalist of the Year and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.
Most recently, Campbell released Ghost on the Canvas, an album which traces the arc of his 75 years. And although Glen Campbell is officially ending his touring days signified by this latest “Goodbye Tour,” it’s certain that his timeless music will continue to be enjoyed by fans worldwide for many years to come.
Opening for Campbell will be Country-Folk duet, Victoria’s Ghost, comprised
of Campbell’s children, Ashley and Shannon Campbell.
