Glen Campbell


Glen Campbell was born in Delight, Arkansas in 1936.  His talent and love for the guitar prompted a move to Albuquerque to play with his Uncle’s band, Dick Bills and the Sandia Mountain Boys.  Glen found his way to Los Angeles, where he became a member of the legendary Wrecking Crew, arguably the greatest group of session musicians ever assembled.   As a session musician, he played on records by artists including Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Merle Haggard and the Beach Boys.  His first solo hit, 1967’s “Burning Bridges”, was followed by huge success with “Gentle on My Mind“, “By the Time I Get to Phoenix”, “I Wanna Live”, “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston“.  He enjoyed continued success in the 1970’s with TV specials and more hits like, “Rhinestone Cowboy“, “Southern Nights” and “Country Boy (You Got Your Feet in LA)”.  Glen Campbell is a multiple Grammy award winner and 2005 inductee of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
