Remembering Glen Campbell (April 22, 1936 – August 8, 2017)
The remarkably talented legendary Arkansas country/pop music artist left us two years ago on August 8, at the age of 81.
Winner of 8 Grammy Awards, releasing 29 Top Ten singles, and selling 50 million records, his profound and rich music career leaves behind a legacy that impacts musicians in all musical genres spanning different time periods and touching many many lives along the way.
Right through his last dying days, the great singer, songwriter, is guitarist and entertainer gracefully showed the world how he can still shine through the power of music. We will always be inspired by him and his six decades of musical treasures he’s give n all of us.
On this two-year anniversary of his death, his widow Kim Campbell has made a big announcement. The Glenn Campbell Museum, which will honour and preserve his musical legacy, and the accompanying Rhinestone Stage to feature live music nightly, will be opening in early 2020 on the corner of Broadway and 2nd Avenue in downtown Nashville, Tennessee (https://www.glencampbellmuseum.com/)
