Quotes & Highlights
Hear Glen Campbell perform “Rhinestone Cowboy” on YouTube.
With a career spanning 45 years and fans crossing both generational and international lines, Glen Campbell is truly a living legend. He will perform for one unforgettable night at the Grove of Anaheim.
Becoming a bonafide living legend isn’t as easy as Glen Campbell makes it look. First, you have to have a solid foundation of talent upon which to build — like being one of the hottest guitar players in the world. Then you have to record memorable songs that will stand the test of time — standards such as “By The Time I Get To Phoenix” and “Wichita Lineman.” And of course, to be a “living” legend, you need to survive the harsh reality of a celebrity lifestyle.
It certainly doesn’t hurt to have a witty, bantering stage style that draws fans like college students to Daytona Beach, or a hit television show viewed by 50 million people every week for three years.
Glen’s special appearances as co-headliner at the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre in Branson draw sold-out crowds, and he’s still a hot draw on television as well. In 2000, PBS aired a Glen Campbell Special taped in Sioux Falls, SD, and he’s been profiled recently on A&E’s Biography, VH-1 Behind The Scenes, and CMT’s Inside Fame.
Besides having one of the most successful variety shows in television history, Glen will be remembered as one of the best guitarists of his generation. His musicianship has inspired many of today’s most renowned pickers, including Alan Jackson, Steve Wariner and Keith Urban, and his playing lives on in the tracks of the most legendary collections of the 20th century. His enormous success as a crossover artist also paved the way for hitmakers such as Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton to break genre barriers. In addition, Glen was one of the first country artists to forge a path into Hollywood’s studio back lots. His portrayal of John Wayne’s young sidekick in the classic True Grit will be viewed by generations to come.
During his 45 years in show business, Glen has released more than 70 albums. He has sold 45 million records and racked up 12 RIAA Gold albums, 4 Platinum albums and 1 Double-Platinum album. Of his 75 trips up the charts, 27 landed in the Top 10.
