About Glen Campbell

It isn't accurate to call Glen Campbell "pure country," but his smooth fusion of country mannerisms, pop melodies and production techniques made him one of the most popular country musicians of the late '60s and '70s and has helped him sell over 40 million records.

Campbell is one of the leading figures of country-pop, having racked up a steady stream of Top Ten singles, highlighted by classics like By the Time I Get to Phoenix, I Wanna Live, Wichita Lineman, Galveston,  Rhinestone Cowboy, and Southern Nights.

With Glen's smooth vocals and layered arrangements, where steel guitars bounced off sweeping strings, those songs not only became country hits, they crossed over to the pop charts as well, which was appropriate, since that is where he began his musical career. Originally, he was a Los Angeles session musician, playing on hits by The Monkees, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Merie Haggard. By the end of the '60s, he had become a successful solo artist, and that success would not abate until the late '80s, when he stopped having radio hits and began concentrating on live performances at his theatre in Branson.
