Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell released more than 70 albums across five decades, making him one of the most prolific performers of all time. This singer/songwriter/guitarist became a true crossover success when he racked up four Grammy Awards in 1967—split evenly across both country and pop. He soon found additional fame hosting The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour throughout the late ’60s and early ’70s.

Some of Campbell’s most beloved recordings include “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Gentle on My Mind,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston” and “Southern Nights.” And much like Johnny Cash, he also scored a resurgence in popularity during the twilight of his career by covering the likes of Green Day, Foo Fighters, U2 and others.

In 2011, Campbell went public with his diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and became a celebrity advocate for Alzheimer’s awareness and research. Shortly thereafter, he released the extraordinary Ghost on the Canvas album of originals and staged an emotional “Glen Campbell Goodbye Tour.” He was honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
