I’ve been looking for blogs where blogger covers penis enlargement or at least delves into the topic of penis enlargement with an independent and serious voice. What are the leading blogs of this type?.
Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on
my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my phone ..
I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb site!
constantly i used to read smaller articles or reviews that as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading here.
I’ve learned all your tunes since the good time hour. I’ve played your guitar parts my whole life. You and Jimmy Webb know how to melt together. Your influence as a guitarist, and the arrangements for me have been instrumental, I take the, with me in each song I play. Thank you and I hope to meet you some day.
Pingback: Health Spotlight News Glen Campbell To Quit Touring Due To Alzheimers Disease Medical Daily | Health Spotlight News
When I was 10 I saved up my money and bought the Galveston album by Glen Campbell. I was about to play it when i dropped in on the floor and the vinyl shattered. I cried for hours. That was how much Glen meant to me.
Thanks so much for a lifetime of music! We just saw your concert in Springfield,MO and the thing we loved the most was the way your children helped you and care about you! It is such a wonderful and refreshing example for the younger people! We have been singing and listening to your music since we were their ages, and we love that they will carry on the tradition! You are in our prayers! From Lorna and Andy Pavlinic
My grandpa, C.D. Cameron, who was a brother to your grandma, was an extremely hard worker. He said, “many times”, “I hope I die, standing on my feet”, “working”! He did just that! When he was 83, he died, while picking cotton, at Portageville, MO. He was a very quiet, gentle, christian man. We loved him, so much. He was an elder, in The Church, for many, many years. Our Scottish heritage, and our country up-bringing shows. We love our relatives, and see those same traits in you. Take care, and God Speed! Love to you, and yours.
I am 39 yrs old and i am so thankful for Glenn Campbell. My grandmother passed with Altzheimers. I have the greatest hits of you. I love it! It has been a part of my music heritage. Thank you so much for giving my generation your music. I found your CD at a local multicicultural festival. I have always been an avid fan. It seems that all the good ones (like my daughter) don’t know who you are. I will make sure they do. There is no one like you! Thank you for all your music, I could not live without it. God bless and take care. What will we do without you!

We saw Geln Campbell and his wonderful band last night in Lewiston, Idaho. It was a great experience not just for the music, but also to watch how the group all worked together and enjoyed playing music together. Wow!! Who’d have ever thought that we get to see such a wonderful performer so up close and personal!!
are you ever coming to australia ??? tania
As an early Christmas present to my father, I took him to the November 30 show at the Ryman in Nashville. Dads are never easy to by presents for, so when I bought tickets as soon as they were available. I remember listening to Glen Campbell records growing up, and I knew that Dad really liked his music. I’m now in my late 40′s and I find myself listening more and more to the music I grew up with. Glen Campbell’s music is in my favorites playlist on my iPod.
The concert was great. Glen’s music was as good as ever, his voice was as clear as it was 30+ years ago. The best part of the night was being able to look over and watch my dad smile as he enjoyed the concert. The music brought back fond memories for him, and on the 30 minute ride home he couldn’t stop talking about the show. And in the almost 2 months since the show, he thanks me for getting the tickets every time we talk.
They say it’s better to give than receive. I’ll have to say that this gift to my father made me feel as good, if not better, than it made him fell. It’s a memory that will stay with me the rest of my life. Thanks, Glen, for sharing your gift with us!
What a wonderful post. that’s awesome that you could connect with your Dsd more via Gen Campbell. Wow, I wish I could have fone to the Nashville while he was there. I just praying that I’ll be able to catch a show soon before her retires from performing all together.
I, like you grew up with Glen”s music and the older I get, the more Ilisten, I wish Glen and his famly comfort and strength and was to thank him for making my life a little easier.
hi everyone how are you all
Saw Glen last Saturday night at Town Hall in NYC with my husband. We travelled from Fairfax, VA. We both enjoyed the show tremendously. He is a fabulous performer as well as his daughter and two sons. It was apparent that Glen was deeply touched by the fans support. Thanks for a magical evening. I would not have missed the show for the world!!
what does bb stand for
Wish I could haave seen that show with you. Here in North Carolina and sadley Glen doesn’t have any dates around here close enought to go. I’m not sure if he has a show in Georgia or bot but that would probably be the closest giig that he has so far. I’m praying that he adds some NC dates because I wwould love to see him live before he retires for good.
Always loved his beautiful voice and guitar playing and his wonderful sense of humor and his love for Christ. Really sad about his illness. It takes away your essence and eaves a shell of a person. So their friends and family and loved ones not once but daily as they watch their loved ones leaving a little bit more each day. wish they had a curedfor this terrible disease.
Saw Glen, along with his two sons and daughter…last Saturday night at Town Hall in NYC ! He was great !! His voice is as good as ever and he can play the daylights out of the guitar ! You could see that at times he was having some trouble walking around the stage..and it seemed like he was looking at monitors on the floor of the stage for the lyrics….but it didn’t matter ! When he played a duet with his daughter from Dueling Banjos, it was fabulous ! He came out to a standing ovation, the first of many during the concert….he was on for about an hour….for him to be on this farewell tour and to be playing alongside his three children…what a thrill for him and for them. !! And of course for us fans to see him(me for the first time) and thank him for a lifetime of wonderful music and for being so courageous as he battles this crippling and deadly disease….He’s one of a kind !!!!
Never saw Glen in person, but avidly watched him on TV!. Great guitar player, great voice, great talent! Will mis that sound!
Thank you Glen and family for performing and bringing so much joy to an audience.
I’m so glad we were able to see him at the Keith-Albee in Huntington. Glen Campbell
is a genuine good guy, and says go ahead and live life, sing, and enjoy the day no matter
My wife and I also saw Glen and children in Huntington. The show was great, as is the new album, and Glen seemed to have a great time. His daughter also enjoyed our “South in the North” Huntington hospitality.
I just saw Glen in Huntington, WV. It was a great show. It was nice to see Glen playing with his children. God bless you Glen.
I was one of the lucky ones to see Glen Campbell on Dec. 16, 2011 at French Lick, IN. It was an awesome show. He played all the favorites and was wonderful. Prayers for Glen and his family. He is still a great performer.
I must be going blind in my old age? What (type) guitar did Glen most use ..favorite?) , and what color are his eyes? shoot me an answer [email protected] thanks!
p.s. dying is about the last day … every day before that is about living. Glen isn’t done yet; just wait and see! Your the man Glen.
All three did a fantastic job, but when Keith Urban started singing I lost it, Glen is one of Keiths idols and I think Keith was having a hard time keeping it together. Keith had Glen Campbell on his show in Las Vegas last year and they were great together.
Merry Christmas to a very special and gifted man and a special family!!!May the Holy Spirit fill your home with so much Love,Peace and Joy I pray many blessings my friend<3 !!!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Thanks for all the Great Music, from such a Great Artist.
Hope you all the Best with your Tour.. Im going to try my best to catch some of them.
Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year to a most wonderful and talented man and his loving family. God Bless each of you!
merry christmas and a happy new year to you and the family, thanks for all your remarkable country music over the years, you will be surely missed by us all, thanks for all the outstanding music in the country music industry, it will not be the same without your outstanding music memories, you are a true hero and inspiration, god bless you, and your family, i will carry on your fight to find a cure for alzheimers disease to cure this. you are my hero and inspiration.
My family is in tow … re-discovering again all the accomplishments of this artist. Not only amazed at his career but chuckle to think.. I always thought The Wichita Lineman physical location would be Witchata falls TX? ha! ha! Just natural to think that the man that made the pathway for Brad P, Vince G. and Keith U., would have been singing about TX.? Now I feel dumb but nonetheless blessed by Glen’s talents. It is the fans turn to possibly make a tribute to Glen? Maybe writing here fans can impart some thanks back to “The Man” and the joy he has given so many. Funny how being in retrospect can renew what has become a permanent bond. By that last sentence I’m saying “hope springs eternal” and Mr. Campbell has forged a lasting positive in a world of much negative. Regards to Mr. Glen Campbell and family. May God continue to bless them and this legend (Glen) among giants in the industry.
Glen- My sister and I are from Columbus, OH and will be attending your Huntingon, WV concert this Sunday. We grew up with your music playing in our house as our dad loved your songs. Unfortunatley, our father passed away when we were 9 and 10, but your music helped us through some tough times. We would love to see you and have you sign some of our old albums while we are in Huntington. Is that possible? We can’t wait to see you on Sunday! What an inspiration you are to us all!
A musical maestro in a world of mediocrity. You will be always be remembered and loved by your legions of fans, Glen, and your legacy will inspire future generations of singers and guitar players.
Ron Toft, Winchester, England.
I so wish I could afford to attend your upcoming performance in Huntington, WV. Congratulations on a truly remarkable career, and may God bless you and your family this holiday season.
love you glen since 1969 come on to Winnipeg Manitoba canada on your fare well tour
So many things could be said, both positive and negative, Glen should have played, the tribute should have been longer and so on and so forth; the fact remains that Glen has spoken into our lives and will continue to as his music remains in our hearts and lives on in the media (on youtube and across the airways) sung by Glen and re-recorded and sung live by artists to come…
Glen thank you for taking the risks, and crossing cultures as you recorded with some of the greats and shared you gift with us…
Your memory may be fading, our time on this revolving ball is short, but we will remember you for a long time Glen…
With respect and fondness,
That performance at the CMA was an awesome way to honor a great musician, singer and performer. I’m hoping the Wrecking Crew movie gets enough support to make it to the theaters. I just love learning about the history of the session players and performers of Glen’s era.
Just met this wonderful man on a recent flight to Nashville. What an honor it was!
Sorry to hear abut Glen’s laryngitis tonight, and cancelation on his show at the Ryman Theatre. We are so upset. We flew in from Florida for the show and theres no way we can return in January for the make-up show. I wish he would come to Florida so we could have a chance to see him. Also we were really excited about seeing our first show in the Ryman theater. Wish we could have heard some one perform in the historic theater.
We too missed the show. we drove up from Atlanta. but he is playing in Fla 2 times in Silver Springs..2/11 and 3/24 .. and once in Melbourne on 3/23.. hope this helps.. maybe I can make one of those as well Good luck, and God Bless you Mr. Campbell!
I am not sure, but I think he is going to be at Silver Springs this coming March.
My Christmas would be complete if I could see and meet Glen Campbell. I saw him in Charlotte a couple of years ago and it was the best concert I have ever seen. I would love for him to come to Charlotte, NC again. I have been a fan since I was a toddler, I know that sounds funny but my grandparents even took me to see him when I was 3 years old. His music warms my heart and makes me smile from ear to ear.
I forgot to mention in my post… Many mentioned last night they would love to have a video of this concert, any chance that might happen?
Saw the show in Branson Last night, it was wonderful! If you ever enjoyed Glen Campbell in years past you will love him now! His band made up of his children and old friends are a wonderful support and to see him move past his memory loss and see the ” entertainer” in him take over is amazing.. I laughed, I cried, and whistled during the show! thank you son much for sharing with your fans this last tour!
I can’t think of a better Christmas gift, than getting to see Glen Campbell perform in Branson. I too grew up listening to Glen. How lucky we all are having Glen’s music to grow up to. Glen, thank you for sharing your musical talent with us all these years. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Regards, MB
Just saw the Branson show. Was wonderful. Grew up listening and loving Glen Campbell. Born and raised in Arkansas, moved to Chicago in my 20′s. Glen singing “Southern Nights” brought me back to my home in my mind over and over. So glad to have the music. Wishing Glen and his family Merry Christmas, peace and a blessed New Year. Warmly, TG
Love all your music. Have all records, CD’s and latest GHOST
which is great. Thanks for the memories.
Hello, you may have already seen this clip, if not check it out
Mr. Campbell, a re-release of this song (in this key) with Mr. Webb, I believe
would go to number 1!!!!! just my 2c
Hi Tom, thanks for posting the link to the file. I really enjoyed listening to the wonderful songs and watching the videos. I’ve been a fan over 40 years.
No words. Most legends are like that.
Glen the man. They all did his songs great. But Keith urban made the hairs stand up pn my arm. God Bless Glen we watched his shows as a kid growing up.
GREAT WORK, I have listened several times to GHOST. I would enjoy this album very much but not able to purchase at the moment. I could listen to his music all day.
Concert in Aberdeen Scotland lasted just over 2 hours – his kids Instant People played for about 3/4 hour and concert finished at about 21.35….. could have listened to him all night x
How long have the shows been?
I was at the Ryman last night, too. What a GREAT experience. Of course the Ryman is a good place for music. Glen was fabulous, warm and funny! Crowd was over the moon with many standing ovations. Cameras everywhere so hope it’s part of a DVD project? I also have to give kudos to his opening band/ back up band/ – INSTANT PEOPLE – it was hard to catch their name so I am posting it here along with their website: http://www.instantpeoplemusic.com/. They were just wonderful and comprised of a few of Glen’s children. All in all, a great night. GO SEE THIS TOUR!!!!!
My Glen Campbell Story
Was at the concert at the Ryman in Nashville last night. You were absolutely STELLAR!!!! Loved seeing you playing with your family!
Glen – I stand in awe of your latest album. What a triumph, what lyrics and your voice is strong and true. Thank you for a great career, impassioned playing and wonderful music. Please tour NZ one more time…
Love song Ghost on a Canvas. Will go out and buy the CD. Glen Campbell was my Mom’s favorite. My Mom passed away in 2000. Her favorite (or so I believe) was “Lineman for the County” (sorry if the name is wrong but I remember all of us singing to that song.
I cannot wait to see the January 29 show. I am a musician, and major music fan of all genres and styles. I truly appreciate what Glen has achieved with the GHOST ON THE CANVAS album. It’s my personal album of the year, and a classy, moving, heartfelt farewell. Standing ovation.

That was such a touching moment when 3 of my favorite country dudes paid tribute to Glen Campbell. I loved seeing him singing along while they performed. I always felt music would be the very best therapy for anyone suffering from alzheimers. Sometimes they can’t remember where they are who their own kids oer grand kids are but they seem to always remember music and lyrics. Seems like the familiarity would bring a brief sense of clarity. Which in turn would bring calmness and hopefully help them recall fond memories that were once lost.
Lolly from Texas
My brothers and I grew up in rural New England, watching and enjoying The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. We knew even as youngsters that we were witnessing musical greatness. We marveled at Glen Campbell’s guitar-playing skills, especially when he rapidly used all four fingers of his left hand to create strings of notes from his trademark Ovation guitar, along with his awesome voice singing those Jimmy Webb songs like nobody else could ever do. When I was a youngster, my older brother had some of Glen Campbell’s earlier albums. I remember the joy of listening to Glen’s “Hey, Little One” album and others.
The Best of the Best. Glen Campbell is an incredible guitarist and singer who has influenced so many and who has inspired generations of young people to play the guitar (including years back that Australian youngster named Keith Urban). I can still remember Glen giving advice on his show to youngsters about keep practicing on your guitar. Glen Campbell definitely influenced the pursuit of guitar playing in our family.
And, on his show, Glen Campbell invited on guests of musical genres outside of country music. Glen Campbell hosted guests like Three Dog Night, Bread, and let us not forget, in 1968, a band called Cream which performed “Sunshine of Your Love” with Eric Clapton on lead guitar. To experience firsthand Glen Campbell’s guitar playing and musical ability, check out “Glen Campbell behind the scenes” on YouTube, as he sings and picks, off the cuff, “Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives to Me”. From an in-demand session musician who recorded on many of the biggest pop and rock songs of the 60’s to a touring member of the Beach Boys to playing guitar on Brian Wilson’s masterpiece album, “Pet Sounds”… the achievements list goes on and on and you know what…. this man deserves so much more recognition and accolades.
In 1969, my family and I went to the local drive-in to watch a new movie called “True Grit”. Glen Campbell sang the title song, and co-starred in the movie with John Wayne and Kim Darby. Now in 2011, Glen Campbell once again, you define the term “True Grit” not by a movie role, but by the real life true grit, honor, integrity, grace, and inspiration that you show the world by the example of your own life, and the solace that you provide to those walking the same path to face similar challenges.
Words fall short. May God Bless You, Glen Campbell. We keep you in our prayers; admire and acknowledge your courage, and remain inspired by your uncommon valor; and thank you for your latest album, and final tour and all that the tour represents on several levels; and for all the wonderful music and memories that you’ve given to the world for many years past and for many years to come.
Ghost On The Canvas needs to be nominated for a Grammy!! My goodness, Glen is 75 years old and combating the onset of Alzheimer’s but he still brings it. Beautiful song by Peter Westerberg, performed as only Glen Campbell can, with beautiful vocals and his signature guitar sound! What can we all do to get this song nominated? God Bless Glen Campbell
Can’t get tickets within 400 miles. Please put this on dvd. This show would be priceless to a fan.
You were bril enjoyed show in Glasgow on Thursday was well worth 5 hour in car from Highlands
How brilliant you still are! Was at the Edinburgh and Glasgow shows and was lucky enough to meet you. Not only still a great singer and guitarist but a very friendly and nice person too. they say dont meet your heroes as they might disappoint you but believe me you did NOT disappoint, it was an honour and a pleasure to shake your hand.
Thanks for everything Glen, for the years of coming back to Scotland and your great albums and songs. It was a sad occasion knowing it was your last shows in Glasgow and Scotland, but a wonderful concert none the less, made even better by the opportunity to meet you after your show. Thanks to Steve for the invite backstage.
Take care of yourself and your family Glen you’ll be sadly missed over here, we’ll be thinking about you and listening to your music always and wishing you good health and happiness.
God bless Glen.
Thank God for All the countless hours of entertainment that most certainly has shaped my life.Glen,Jimmy Webb,John Hartford. What a magical T.V. show Way back when.I turned 50 today so I am old enough to have enjoyed most this mans talent.I have read some stories and saw Glen on T.V. talking of his Health.What grace, class and courage.We are all blessed to have Glen Campbell as a human and a performer. Can’t wait to see the show.
Hi Glen I am now age 35 how time flies! I remember very well whilst growing up as a young lad and having my Mum play your Albums on the family gramophone was really wonderful and inspiring. Your voice is as soft as silk and you have a special touch that no one else has and probably never will! I am sadly struggling to make it in this competitive Music industry but continue to enjoy Making Music. You sure deserve credit for your natural talent and best of all your Music will live on and entertain People the world over. My Mum sadly passed away in 1996 due to cancer but trust me she was a HUGE fan of yours, As I am! I doubt I will ever get to meet you personally, but, will always admire you as a Musician – Singer. God Bless
I have to agree with Steve W I was there on Tues night in Aberdeen and totally fell in love all over again with Glen – now got the new CD and some of the songs are so touching – you still have it after all these years Glen – I always loved your songs and have fell in love with them all over again – you truly have left us a great gift God Bless xx
I was at your Aberdeen show on Wednesday 23/11/11.
What a fantastic performance!You can still hit those notes,you can still play that geetar boy!
I feel lucky to have been there.
Thanks Glen, and family,for some of the best songs ever recorded.
I have never felt such warmth from an Aberdeen audience.It was poignant,moving…..barely a dry eye in the house.
Thanks.I’ll be listening to your fabulous songs for the rest of my life.
THANK YOU GLEN… for a wonderful concert tonight in Glasgow… for your beautiful music… for your incredible voice which has no right to hit every note but still does… for your amazing guitar playing… but above all else… for your inspirational approach to life! Such an emotional, beautiful and memorable night tonight, for which I thank you (appropriately enough, on Thanksgiving).
DONT LET THE THINGS YOU CANNOT DO KEEP YOU FROM DOING THE THINGS THAT YOU CAN!!! You can sing…play…and love your family! You truly ARE a legend Sir!
An incredible bellweather artist. I was born in 1967 Glen was entertainer of the year in 1968 I beleive. I would imitate him and sing his songs as a kid and could recognize his voice in an instant. When I stood on the shores of Africa going into Somilia and The Port of Dures going into Albania the song Galveston would inevitably sneak into my mind. So far from home and yet still so grounded. You have left GREAT memories for all of us and I THANK YOU!! You and your family have eared a much deserved retirement. Love Ya Man!!
I also was at Glen’s last UK concert in Glasgow tonight. What a fantastic show, but emotional as well. I went with my sister – we know all Glen’s songs through our late Dad who was a big fan and had all the albums – we grew up listening to them. How wonderful it was to hear Wichita Lineman and By The Time I Get To Phoenix, and to hear Glen’s amazing guitar and wonderful voice. I agree The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress was another highlight. So many great Jimmy Webb songs! All the best for your retirement, Glen – you deserve it. Thanks for the memories
Just back from the concert in Glasgow too!!! Sad, emotional and insprirational – a night to remember!!
I’ve just come home from the concert in Glasgow, Scotland (24/11/2011) and enjoyed it so much. ‘The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress’ was particularly beautiful and ‘Lovesick Blues’ was so much fun. I feel lucky to have seen Glen Campbell live, and while in my 30s now if I’m as sprightly in my 70s I’ll be both surprised and very glad. The numerous standing ovations said it all: Glen’s audience loves him.
I am a BIG Glen Campbell fan i knew all the words to “Galveston” at the age of 3 year old. In my opinion Glen Campbell and Crystal Gayle rule the World.
Mr Campbell, after watching the CMA, I remembered how truly great an Entertainer you were and still are. I’m 58 and want to thank you for all the wonderful memories you evoke when I hear your music.
Glen I too was very fortunate to attend the gig in Aberdeen last night. The atmosphere was amazing, very emotional, uplifting and unforgettable. So wonderful to hear so many beautiful songs, old and new. You must be so proud of your talented family also. Thanks for being a unique entertainer.
I was lucky enough to be at last night’s concert in Aberdeen – thank you for coming to Scotland for your Farewell Tour. What a talented family the Campbells are ! Also the young lead singer of your support group. A night to remember.
Thank you so much for all the pleasure you have brought to us over the years.
Never seen GC live, but have loved him from afar since I was 12. Who else could sing “And I need you more than want you. And I want you for all time” quite like him? A true legend. When I hear his voice, I go right back to my teenage years. Thank you for the music, GC.
I could not get tickets for glasgow concert, but managed to get tickets for edinburgh..and so glad i made the effort. The concert was terrific a true legend and fine man accompanied by a terrific band comprising his daughter and two sons. if you get the chance to see this legend then please take it. I am currently trying to source tickets for tomorrow evenings gig..and hope to be there to see the legend once again
Just been to the Aberdeen show – a warm and wonderful experience and what a talented family you have! Saw you twice before once in Toronto when we lived there, and once in Scotland, when you appeared for your encore playing the bagpipes. One question Glen – did you get a game of golf when you were here? Royal Aberdeen is one of the best courses in the land.
Many thanks and best wishes for then future. The new CD is wonderful BTW.
Dr Charlie Allison
Hi Glen, I was at your concert in Dublin on the 19th of November ’11. I’m one of your younger fans. Wichita Lineman was released just before I was born..but I have alway’s loved that song so much..I was so moved by the concert on Saturday, your voice is sounding wonderful. Thank you for enriching my life with some great music Glen..
Glen, I’ve loved you since the first time I heard you sing “Gentle on My Mind.” I have a huge old scrapbook with many, many articles about you from all the old movie magazines. I even cut out each listing for your TV shows from the TV Guide. I was fortunate to be able to attend the taping of one of your Goodtime Hour shows and I have never forgotten how exciting it was! My ipod is full of Glen Campbell songs and I must say my husband gets a bit jealous because I have never quit loving you. God bless you and your family. I hope I can catch you on this tour.
I loved you in True Grit.
glen we travelled to york to watch your show and we were blown away by your performance.thank you for the music.thanks for the memories. x patti
Glen I think I have everything track you have every recorded and I listen to your current material and back catalogue regularly. I saw you in concert two nights ago (19 November 2011) and honestly your voice sounds better than it has done in twenty years. You simply must keep recording. How about an unplugged album with TJ or Jimmy Webb. At the concert “Still Within the Sound of My Voice” with just TJ Kuenster on electric piano was heart wrenching with range and emotion. Simply wonderful, just like Ghost on the Canvas. What a talent. Please, please, please continue singing and playing for as long as you can Glen. A better place can wait. We want more, more, more. Encore Glen.
I’m looking to buy a small Glen Campbell doll / figurine.

Wonderful show in Edinburgh last night and in Newcastle a couple of weeks back – songs I’ve heard on the radio since a child played and sang so well. Great memories. Wishing you all the best and ‘thanks for the music’!
Your concert in Dublin on saturday night was amazing, your singing and guitar playing was great, you are a lovely person Glen, we managed to meet your lovely daughter after the show which was great, Duelling Bangos was just amazing, your family are so talented,you must be very proud of them, God Bless you as you battle a very serious condition, we have been fans for ever.
Hilda & Martin McEvoy.
what an amazeing man amazing voice and his music has written it self on the pages of my life I’ll never forget him. I was honored to see him about ten years ago live in branson and I wish I could relive that nite he was a Joy! and will remain one of my happiest moments in life you touched alot of us Mr Campbell ! thank you and God bless as you fight your battle to live. A Fan for life.
It was an honour to sit in the front row at your Edinburgh concert tonight. After hearing your records played throughout our childhoods, we both became fans. Tonight was incredibly moving. Your guitar sang as beautifully as you did. Best wishes to you all. Jonathan and Samantha.
Was at the show in Edinburgh tonight. Excellent.. thanks Glen.
Glen. Perhaps you dont read these as they’re probably way too many. But, I was in a band that opened for you in the mid 1990′s. I have been an avid fan since the late 60′s and was so very much impressed at your affiability to me during our shared concert (Rickman Audiorium (Nancy Hays show). You did “A Lady Like You” by request even though it wasnt on the set list. Now that is classy. I wish you the very best of luck and a positive outlook and prognosis.
Stacy M Doty
Really would like to see a concert of this last farewell tour, but sadly there aren’t any dates for Germany or the Netherlands yet. Glen, if you’re still feeling fine after the dates in the US, come and visit your fans overseas, please.
Dear Glen Campbell:
I am very pleased to send this mail to you from Japan.
Since I have heard “Galveston” in my youth age, you are my symbol of youthfulness in my life. Many many years ago, You had visited Japan twice, and had concerts in Shinjuku city and Nakano city. Of course I had enjoyed them, and I am reminded of your stages.
Then, I have enjoyed Glen and Andy concert with my wife at Branson in 2002. That was the splendid remembrance. Yes, tide come and waves crashing at shores, but I still hearing of your
Ken Komatsu, with love from autumn Japan.
Sure hope we get to see you up here in the Seattle/Tacoma area before the farewell tour is over. Enjoyed your shows up here circa 2000/2002.
I wish you come to Birmingham or Tuscaloosa. Prayers to you.
Glen, please come to Salt Lake City. We have been to four of your concerts in the past, but ONE more would be a dream come true.. I wish you the best in dealing with your challenges.
Thank you for sharing an amazing talent.
Glen’s rare album, “Live in Japan,” will be released on January 24, 2012, and is available for pre-order on amazon.com! See CMA’s news release at: http://www.cmt.com/news/news-in-brief/1674503/glen-campbells-live-in-japan-album-due-in-january.jhtml
Awww..the clip isn’t working from the CMA awards!!! One thing I know for sure Glen…. NO ONE can sing your songs like you do! I dearly love the entertainers who sang your tribute, but they didnt’ do the songs justice. I listen to your music every night before I go to sleep. I sure wish you were coming to Denver! You are in my thoughts daily…as are your family. Just keep smiling like you do, sing and pick that guitar! Love ya, Paula
Dear Glen, I’m with you in your trials. I have some exciting (I think) information about A.D. that I’d like to share with you, and Kim. Of course I don’t have your mailing address, but If you would email me the address of whoever I can send the information to, and who will deliver it to you, I’ll post it immediately. I am just a loyal, old, fan of yours who cares about you, and your family and want to share this information with you. No gimmick, no sales pitch, just sincere gesture and wishing you the best.
Gary, can you please post this information here on this Website? I think we all know someone who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Thank you.
I’ve been checking all YouTube videos of Glen’s performances and interviews for the past two days… and crying all the time. Glen was my first love and influenced everything I’ve come to enjoy musically. So sad to think of his leaving us, but it will be to A Better Place, as the song says. My message for Kim, his wife: thanks for “saving Glen from self-distruction” in his lost years. You’ve made him happy and we’ve had him several decades longer. I’ve enjoyed listening to his Christian testimony and I know I will see him in Heaven one day. You’ve got some difficult years ahead as Glen’s disease progresses and I know you will rely on God to give you the grace to endure. God bless you both.
hi Glen.listen to you radio2 concert last night,boy you sound good all those old songs,one doesn’t forget the words,some from your new album,sums up things today.I’ve seen you many times and been photographed with you back stage.Hope you enjoy your retirement keep up the writing,guitar playing-william tell being my favourite,shouldn’t think bagpipes are so easy now as we all have less puff as we get older.You will be sadly missed on your tours in Britain,but now do all the things you’ve always wanted to do.All the best to you and your family.From a devoted fan.Margaretxx
I love your new song Glen, i hope you write some more songs, cause you just seem to be getting better. I have been watching your videos and checking out Jay Leno show and some of your shows online, wish i could have seen you in person. You are incredible.
It was a real privilege to watch your recent concert in Newcastle.
Good music, recognisable oldies, a genuinely warm atmosphere towards you from the audience. But best was the dignity and integrity you showed in dealing with a real challenge.
You were a fine role model for anyone who is facing some of the challenges life throws up.
The “real” part of us inside is still there, the ghost or soul………..wishing people could always recognise that.
As the y say in the North East, Good Luck, bonny lad and thanks for a very, very special night
CHRIS + MARION
Glen, we wish we could be at one of your shows, meanwhile we play Ghost on the Canvas the whole time, and man, do you sound GREAT!! We wish you and your family all the best. We love you man. greetings from Holland Leo & Gertie
Glen, I had your Wichita Lineman album when I was kid. My uncle taught me how to play that song on the guitar. Can’t wait to see you in Bossier City, La., in January. Call me to do an interview on the KWKH morning show in Shreveport. I’m the morning show host and assistant program director. 318-320-1130.

Glen, I have waited many years to be able to see you in concert. I absolutely love your voice and music. I was listening to your music since I was a kid when no one in my age group was. Your songs and how you sing them stir my emotions and move me every time I listen to them. In all my years there are very few artists who’s music I never tire of and your’s is at the top of the list. No matter how old or new the song, I love them all. My dream will finally be coming true on Jan. 21, 2012, as I will be seeing you in concert in Milwaukee, WI. I am as giddy as a kid at Christmas just looking forward to it. I would love to sit down with you and talk about your life and music and meet the man who touches my soul when I listen to his music. I’d even bring the homemade pie and coffee/tea!!!
All my love to you and your family for now and the future.

What a beautiful song Glen. I have loved you since i was a young girl, and have followed you over the years. I watched you on the news here in Hawaii when you were here, i have always thought you were such a good looking man, still are. Your voice is such a good one, i just so enjoy listening to your music. I will be praying for you Glen. We are behind you all the way, thank you for the album. I will enjoy it. Much love and Aloha from Hawaii
I was in tears during this whole video, I have been a Glen Campbell fan since I was 14, (never mind how many years ago that was), I saw him in person twice, he is truly a great entertainer and a good guy. See you in heaven Glen!!
I am sorry I could not see you in England, I have known you for years, used to go to your golf tournament in Los Angeles. I do hope that God will heal you, He can do. I miss you and hope I can see you again. I used to go to your Golf tournament in Los Angeles. You will know me.
Lots of love, Betty Davies. xxxx
What a beautiful tribute to a very well deserved musician, and guitarist….He was the founder of the new country music..as we know it today…country rock….I had the pleasure of seeing you serveral times live….and was so pleased to see that you were honnored at the CMA awards. My dad had Alzheimers disease so Im well aware of the journey that you are experiencing right now. Thank you for all the years, music and joy that you brought to my life…..Best wishes to you and your family….May God Bless you….
I also saw Glen in Bristol on the 2/11/2011 what a magical show,with his family in the band.
It brought back memories when he came to Bristol I think it was the early 70s.He had his Mum and Dad on stage singing.Best wishes Glen and thanks for all the great music. BOB,
wondrfully smooth singer…glad to see he was recognized while he can enjoy it.
I just can’t quit watching this. When the crowd roared as Glen put on his Ovation guitar, I almost lost it. But when Brad Paisley took his hat off to Glen as the master started playing, forget it! I weep every time. I know this tribute means the world to his fans – me included.
Dont feel embarrased about weeping for a great artist. The thought that we will loose him to that dreadful disease breaks my heart but his music will live on.
I am from Puerto Rico. Recently I read on AARP Magazine about Glen Campbell diagnosis of AD. Please try Unforgettables capsules from MELALEUCA Co. My mother was diagnosed on March 2011 with AD and began to take the capsules on August 2011, in two weeks I saw the difference and she also told me about how great she began to feel. If you want to try, you need to contact a member of Melaleuca Co. in the United States to order the product.
Poor ‘ol Keith shoud have just stuck to pickin’!
I agree his voice was not good but I have been told he has nodules on his voice box that he has to have removed. Keith is one of his greatest fans .
saw glen on 02 11011 at bristol, i walked up to the stage and gave him two red roses, he thanked me and held my hand. i will remember that for ever, and its me wishing to thank him. ive loved him since 1969. im glad that i have so many wonderful songs to listen to. will miss seeing him so much.
Glen – I’ll post this a few more times for you and other AD sufferers (I have no monetary or other gain other from this – just excitement that it can cause the brain to stop eroding): please consider ketogenic diet’s affect on your AD. Mary Newport, MD, has been trialing this with her husband, successfully. It is doable (the first four days are challenging while sugar stores are exhausted) and by Day 6 your loved ones will probably remark on a difference in you, by Day 7 you will probably comment on your own well-being. It costs no more than groceries and a seven-day experiment; it is well-known in medical communities and being trialed by Oxford U. at present in regards to Parkinsons Disease. See Newport’s 6-month report of her husband’s improvement: http://www.coconutketones.com/whatifcure.pdf
I use coconut oil, along with large doses of Niacianamide, to help me remember, and they do a super job, “for me”..Niacianamide is a B vitamin, that alzheimer’s patients are short of. Find information on: (Niacianamide use to stop alzheimers), online. Research on it was done over 50 years ago.
it’s not goodbye to Glenn it’s we will talk soon. I grew up loving Glen Campbell as a young girl. he is a great man.
My heart cries for him because I know what lies ahead for him as my husband has Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease.
absolutly a timeless showman and human being.thoughts and prayers Glen.you will forever be “Gentle on our Minds”. from a fellow Arkansan,bob
I was in Castlebar last night, wonderful show, just sad to see what the passage of time does.
I sow glen live last night in castlebar mayo ireland he was class i was born 30 years to late there will never ever be singers like him again..
God has blessed you in many ways. You have touched so many lives with your music and I know you will continue to be a positive influence.

Glen asked Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior. Glen recorded a album called “show me your way” with so many truly amazing songs. The best spiritual song I have ever heard
is on the album is called “the Greatest Gift of All”
I love you Glen Campbell
I love you Jesus

Pingback: Birmingham Live! » Blog Archive » Glen Campbell @ Symphony Hall, 6th November 2011
It appears that the votes are in…..and the CMA is left to sort out the sad mistake of not allowing Glen to respond to his fans and friends with a song. Clearly, a remarkable mistake was made, one that the CMA and ABC will be living down for some time to come. We can’t go back and undo it, and while it breaks our hearts, the best thing we can do is appreciate the efforts of Keith, Brad and Vince, who did their tribute to him with much love.
I think what we saw from the CMA and the network was fear, not knowing that Glen is still very much in possession of his talents and sensibilities, and if that’s true, it points to one of the truly awful things about this disease — the fear and doubts that emerge in others as the disease takes hold. Glen has a while before the really tough challenges begin to face him and his family. Now should be a time to just appreciate the man and celebrate his legacy.
For his indelible influences on my musical life and journey, it was my extreme pleasure to be able to express those to him in person on September 10, as well as the story of my chance meeting with his father back in 1970 when we both discovered that we shared the same seats on separate nights. It was only because Wes Campbell had confused the tickets in his pocket from the night before that he approached my seat on the following afternoon.
He then bragged about Glen as any proud father would and talked my ear off while his wife waved frantically from another section. Moments after rejoining her and taking his seat, the house lights came down, and I told Glen that I finally realized after 40 years that Wes and I had held up his show! They had been watching him to make sure he got back to his seat, and our conversation made Glen late on stage!
And when I watched him strap on his signature model Ovation guitar at the end of the tribute, it made me want to walk back to my home studio and get out the guitar I own that is identical to it. Even after 35 years in music myself, Glen is the master and I’m forever the student. I was able to tell him all these years later that I loved him — and felt his arms embrace me in an appreciative hug.
Our evening together, watching him perform and spending time with him afterwards, is one I will never forget in my life. God bless Glen Campbell, his wife Kim and his incredible family. “Though summer seems far away, you’ll find the sun one day.”
(Image is Glen and I on 9/10/11.)
Great words to an amazing man and talent. Glen also shaped my musical life and probably like you, I have seen hundreds of his shows and met him a few times. There must be thousands of people Glen has influenced. I also treasure my moments with him and I think we should thank all of his family who have sacrificed being with Glen so this amazing talent could give to us and make our lives much better.
“Before I Leave Myself…and You Behind”
This is a tribute to Glen Campbell and others contending with Alzheimers and other forms of dementia.
On November 2, 2011, Glen Campbell and his wife appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Glen’s moving story of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s touched me deeply. After listening to Glenn perform, with his children in his band, I became inspired to write this song . The line, “Before I leave myself…and you behind,” came to me immediately. From there this song was born.
I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Glen years ago in a small concert. And now to think that my all time favorite singer will be silenced makes my heart sad. Can only hope he can live out a longer life of hope and pleasure. Glen was my first country musician that I really enjoyed, due to his TV show, have almost every album he put out, the voice that I enjoyed yesterday and still enjoy today. Songs were genuine and words were memorable. GOD BLESS YOU GLEN
I hate to think that after this tour he will be off the stage for good. He’s been my musical hero since the age of 12. And the influence behind my playing the bagpipes. What a talent and legcy. He’s still the BEST!
So moving…..how we loved him then and now…..and always.
if the cma awards was meant to be a tribute to Glen I,d hate to see them insult anyone. absolutelly disgusting. Glen has just done a 17 date sell out concert tour of England playing a 1and 3/4 hr set, lucky enough to see 3 shows. Still has the voice that we all love and one of the best guitarist in the business. He still has a sense of humour and is more than capable of giving a vote of thanks and showing the young pretenders how to pick and sing. Relocate to the uk Glen, the reception you received here shows we still love and appreciate you.
A wonderful tribute to an amazing talent, brought tears to my eyes.
I enjoy watching this spot. I have watched it 2 or 3 times now. Glen’s songs are as good now as when he first did them.
We’ve followed Glen for 40 Years. His Voice is one in a Million. His Guitar playing is fantastic! We had the pleasure of meeting Glen twice. He is the nicest Person in the World. What a class act. He took Pictures with all of us, and signed everything that we had. He’s the best! We love him.
God Bless you Glen!
I absolutely agree with the below comments. It was a big disappointment that Glen Campbell was not allowed to sing or even allow to give a thanks. You don’t give a tribute without giving the recipient a chance to reciprocate, others have, why not him?
Great seeing Glen on the CMA Awards!
The CMA really did a bad job on this one. You don’t give Glen a guitar and then go to a
commerical. I was able to see him in Biloxi in July and have tickets for the Monday night show
at the Ryman in Dec. He was wonderful and as said before I’m sure there were many tears
shed as will be in Nashville. I just hate that Glen was treated this way after many planned
events had to be changed on his tour so he could get back to Nashville and then didn’t even
get to say “thank you”
Well Said Shelia T. I agree……………
great tribute.. Vince Gill knocked it out of the park. I wish they would have let him sing a few lines and pick a few bars on his guitar….. I have tickets to see him in branson, mo.. Will be a night to remember for sure.. Best of luck Glen.. Keep Singin and Pickin !!
Let’s see…..we aren’t going to let a country legend like Glen Campbell sing…….but let’s let Lionel Ritchie sing 3 songs – even though he’s not even country music……….yeah, that really makes alot of sense! Glen performed “Wichita Lineman” on Ellen about a month ago — what a talented man!! It really is a shame he didn’t perform at the awards. Show some of the younger singers how it’s done!! Still an amazing guitarist as well!!!
Saw him in concert in Louisiana in September…what a great show, not a dry eye in the house! Man, can he still sing and play that guitar…go see him if you can, you will never forget it!
Nice tribute-long overdue, but I’m sorry, NOBODY should “cover” GLEN CAMPBELL songs but GLEN CAMPBELL-it would have been better to show the photos in the background and play the original, recorded versions if you weren’t going to let him sing himself! No one can hold a candle to GLEN CAMPBELL!
I’ve been listening to Glen since his TV show The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour and have never tired of listiening to his incredible vocals and guitar playing ! I just bought tickets for his farewell tour when it plays at the Town Hall in NYC on Jan 7th…I’ve seen a great many fabulous artists in my time and I’m totally excited about seeing Glen perform for the first time(sadly, the last) in concert…I’m sure it’s going to be an incredible evening with fabulous music and a unbelievable emotion !!!!
Yeah, it was great to see Glen. It would have been better to HEAR Glen, (especially instead of Keith Urban who had a bad time with his song. Did anyone else notice his own wife wincing at his performance? Ouch!) Glen is still a guitar hero of mine, since 1967. Best of luck, Glen!
I love when Glen reaches in his pocket and pulls out a pick!
Nice tribute, but they should not have handed Glen a guitar if they weren’t going to let him play and sing. When he pulled that pick out of his pocket, he was ready to roll, and the crowd roared! He’s on tour, and giving great performances. CMA blew their chance to have one of the greatest of the greats grace them with a song. Glen is one-of-a-kind and would have given them something to remember!
They completely Screwed up not letting him Sing. He is such a great singer!
I cannot view the CMA tribute listed on this website – if the link/video is posted, it does not work for me.
I have all of your albums .i have been a fan since the 60′s I pray god will watch over you.
Hope I’m not out of order posting the ‘You Tube’ URL below.
Under the You Tube moniker.. ‘Nick of Time’ I uploaded a video of words and music of ‘Grow Old With Me’ which is the final track on the ‘Meet Glen Campbell’ album. The song was written by ex-Beatle (the late John Lennon) for his Wife, Yoko Ono.
The song seems appropriate for the 50th anniversary of my Wife and I who met and married as teenagers in London England. We both met Glen at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on our 17th Anniversary and he sang ‘Macarthur Park’ for us on stage. That was 33 years ago!! My how time flies! Two pics of my Wife and I (then and now) appear in the You Tube video.
Thank you Glen.. God bless you and yours.
I am 63 and I am a fan of the faboulous Beach Boys from the start. But as well a fan of
Glen Campbell. A great country musician, singer and song-writer. I will always cherish his
memory as long as I live. God bless him! Sincere regards for the autumn of his life from
a fan faraway Germany.

OH how wonderful that Glen can still remember lyrics to his hit songs. May God be with him and his family as he endures such a horrible disease.
The CMA Awards should have honored Glen by showing more about his life and music career! Couldn’t they have spent 10 minutes on him? They should have cut out all of those stupid jokes with Brad and Carrie, and then they would have had more time for Glen.
And yes, let Glen sing and play his guitar! I like Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Vince Gill, but they don’t sing as well as Glen Campbell. My husband and I saw Glen in July and again in Sept. and he is still one of the greatest Guitarists of all time and sings well at 75 years old! His Farewell Tour is really great! We also had the privilege of meeting Glen backstage in Sept. He autographed our copy of his CD, Ghost On the Canvas and he also autographed one of my Guitars! I also asked him to play something on it. This was a great honor for me! Glen is so nice! We felt like we were visiting an old friend! I wish him all the best!
I’m glad something like this was done at the CMA. I don’t follow county music, but I do Glen Campbell. I saw the ads for it and thought it would be nice to do a tribute to him, I’m glad they did.
Everyone wanted him to sing, tribute or not, if you are a true fan you wanted him to sing to
I worked for the Glen Campbell Theatre in Branson, Mo. I got to know his two sisters Sandy and Barbara and his daughter Debbie. They are class acts. You can’t beat T.J. Kunstler what agreat musician as are the others. I think that Glen speaks with his music. I will try to see him before he totally retires. The whole family is a class act.
My brother and I met Glenn back when he performed on a cruise ship in the 80′s. He was a great guy. Very down to earth. We saw him perform about a month ago in L.A . at the Nokia Theatre. He sounded very good, but you could see that he struggled at times. The audience would sing to point him in the right direction if he couldn’t quite remember all the lyrics to every song. That was very touching. The love for him in the room was incredible. My brother and I own an eldercare facility, so the concert and the tribute had special meaning to us.
God Bless Glenn Campbell
everything Pamela Parrish writes makes me cccrryyy !
thanks Glen, for everything
if there never had been shows, albums or movies,
we still would have appreciated Glen.
All the other is the bonus he shared.
so deserving of the tribute. He was wonderful!!!
They did an awesome job… I am crying… I wish that he would not stop singing… Young Singers TAKE NOTES… This man is class and he will never die… Got to blow my nose.. I love you Glen…
the CMA’s last
night. Vince Gill’s verbal tribute to the GREAT Glen Campbell has left
me in tears, still this morning. And observing poor Glen during the
tribute was a gut wrencher. Aint it funny how someone you have met
only via media, can effect a life,touch a soul and prompt only the
fondest of memories? I am deeply thankful for the inspiration and
beauty and joy of his music. I have also been VERY frustrated trying
to cop his riffs. His courage is also an inspiration. The “Rhinestone
Cowboy” is “Riding into the sunset” with Presidential dignity. God
Bless you Glen and ride in peace. With love, John Robel

I have seen in this thread, or perhaps another, people suggesting that Glen be honoured by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. I hope someone here, or elsewhere, sits up and and takes notice and finds a way to make this known to The Center. Sorry if my posting so much irritates some but there is so much content in the various threads that its hard to close my computer. Its just that for me, its a way of being “with” Glen. But I close now and thank everyone for being so gracious to Glen. See y’all another day!
I was blown away, the first time I ever saw Glen, “in the mid sixties”. He was beautiful to look at, and his personality was just contageous. His voice and guitar playing was the out of this world! I did not not know that we were related, but, I felt a kindredship, and I couldn’t keep from staring at him. I told my mother, that I thought we were related, because he looked just like my oldest brother, and I favored him, a lot, too. In the 70′s my mother went to a family reunion, in Arkansas. Glen’s mother was talking to my mother about Glen. My mother said to her, who is this Glen everyone is talking about? Carrie answered, and said, Glen Campbell, the singer. My mother had never made the connection, and she was shocked, beyond words! When my mother told me what she had heard, I wasn’t surprised, I had already figured it out. My friends think I am cool, because I am related to Glen…I saw Glen, at St. Charles, MO, recently, I cried my eyes out. He will be missed by everyone. There will never be another Glen Campbell. I love you, Glen.
Would like to have heard the part where Glen played also. I’m sorry I missed the CMA Tribute. I’m gonna miss Glen. I’ve been listening to him for almost 50 years.
Sooo many songs….so many GREAT songs! What a guy! Oddly, one of Glen’s very best covers of another artist’s song was that of Roy Orbison’s “Its Only Make Believe.” Blew me away! So much so that I would play it fairly often on my Rock’n Roll Oldies Show. It became a favourite of my listeners. I would have to say that Orbison would have to agree as well. Sad that he has been given this to deal with. Happy to see him dealing with it so gracefully! Happier still. to have the opportunity to be able to express my feelings to him through this medium. He is a lesson in grace and dignity.
I love you, Glen. You may not can hear me, but I am cheering you and Kim on. My prayers are with you!! I just treasure the times I got to spend meeting you and hearing all about your amazing life. I love you!! Janet
Deep regrets. I missed the Tribute! Thank you to all who posted in this thread. You have exceeded anything I could have written. I hope this man takes great comfort from the outpouring of love and affection you have given him. I hope a simple “thank you” is enough.
Well if you don’t sing at your own tribute, which would have been ok, then don’t hand him his guitar when he gets up on stage. Hand him the award! I called it awkward!!
Not just a legend in the US but all over the world. We love Glen over here in the UK.
Glen Campbells tribute should have had more of his wonderful songs, and not ended with them handing him a guitar,letting him pull out his pick to play,and then to cut to commercial . It was a horrible thing to do to him.
Long overdue. There should be more tributes to him and other artists who are our musical heritage.
It was enough just to see him strap that guitar on!
Coconut oil, Glen…. use it in everything… It really works for Alzheimer’s.
Glen… The Haverstick Family Love you and WISH YOU ALL THE BEST!!!!!!! Virgil and Norma would be so proud of what you have accomplished and achieved!!! We love you and your music! Elana Fe Haverstick
Oh, my God! This was just “fabulous!” You are just the best, Glen!!!!!! Thank you so much for all of the years of incredible music and for all of the wonderful memories that you have given to me and to my family. XOXOXOXO’s! Love, Olivia Duke
Great tribute to Glen, but I wanted him to sing!! He is such a talented guy! Enjoyed seeing Jimmy Webb too, no one can sing his songs like Glen can!!
I was glad to see Jimmy there too. I’m such a Jimmy Webb fan that I’ve listened to alot of other artist sing those songs which only makes me want to hear Glen’s versions again.
the look on brads face was enough for me to know that fair do was not paid in this tribute. the whole glen cambell career could not be surmised in hours much less minutes. the records that he has made in the past couple years with julian raymond have been further proof that glen moves outside the boundaries of what is the norm in country music. it has always worked for me and always will….. thank you mr. cambell
We love ya Glen. I’ve always thought that you had the best voice in any kind of Music. Never be duplicated.
We’ve met you a couple times. What a CLASS ACT.
It wasn’t a roast. Lots of people participate in a tribute – glad they did it now so he could enjoy the event – most times they wait until they are gone. I think he did sing but ABC and CMA went to commercial.
Glen was the first celebrity I met when I first arrived in Hollywood to pursue my career as a songwriter. Since my main inspiration was Jimmy Webb that show last night was an emotional experience for me to say the least. A ” bigger than life” enterainer if there ever was one and
what is even more awesome is that ”Ghost On The Canvas” takes no back seat to his previous work.
Thanks for doing this. Glen will always be my favorite entertainer!
I thought it was very nicely done and Glen looked pleased. Still breaks my heart that he can no longer perform his beautiful songs, but he looks wonderful and seems to be doing okay with the situation. He will always have a very special place in my heart and I wish him well in his retirement. Love you Glen… Judy Boss
Maybe some of you are not aware that he is in the somewhat early stages of alzheimers, and that is probably why he didn’t play or sing. It was about consideration for him, and possibly not enough time, also.
Sooo disappointed they didn’t let Glen do what he does best and sing at the end. He had his guitar then suddenly it went to commercial. I feel robbed. Of course hearing Vince Gill & the others sing Glen Campbell songs was awesome but needed to hear Glen. Can’t wait to see him in Branson 12/11!!
They should have showed his Ghost on the Canvas video. It is beautiful..
He is the best and has a voice like no other performer. A true fan since the
60′s..love him..I waited the entire show to see him..this was a tribute to him
who cared about the others? I sure did not. Agree, there needs to be a whole
show dedicated to him..
I have already left a comment early this morning . As I said .. I watched the entire CMA Show just to see the Glen Campbell Tribute and found it very beautiful and emotional .
Seeing Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb together was incredible . Glen’s wife Kim
is beautiful ! I too was disappointed that Glen didn’t sing and I wanted to share this comment
that I read on the LA Times Blog regarding the show …
“it was a shame that this tribute didn’t offer Campbell a chance to perform. Perhaps Campbell declined the overtures, but he stil has a couple months of tour dates lined up, so there seems to be no real reason why this living treasure wasn’t a part of his own accolades. And there’s no reason it wasn’t another five minutes. Next time, cut Miss Piggy. “
Honey, this was so moving I cried…
My dear Glen, you were the one who inspired me to learn the guitar, so I have been playing, singing and writing for 44 years, never thought of playing the guitar until I saw you on TV that summer…of 1968…thank you and God bless you. He is very near to you.
Didn’t see the show but saw the clip. So glad they did that for Glen. I was one of his
biggest fans way back when. Never missed an episode of his ‘Goodtime hour’.
Galveston has always and probably will always be one of my all time favorite
songs and only Glen Campbell could sing it. Happy Trails Glen Campbell.

A great tribute for a great man who made such great contributions to music that most won’t ever know. I appreciate you Glen and all that I have learned about playing, singing and performing. May the love of Messiah Yeshua continue to fill you until He comes!
For some reason I can’t see the video above-but from reading the comments I have only one thing to say-I understand the reasons WHY Glen didn’t sing-but I wish he had-
Couldn’t believe he didn’t sing!!!!!I cried so hard and pray they do another one but without so many others singing!!Glen desrve better we thought!but then maybe it was supposed to be like it was????love him so much and his precious wife<3 <3
His new album should get the attention it deserves at the Grammys this year!
I’ve loved him and his music for many, many years and I am 57 years old now. He is the BEST and I wish him all the BEST!
Glen and Jimmy Webb were like Lennon and McCartney of country music!
He’s a national treasure. I agree, the CMA goofed and we all lost out on seeing this gifted legend sing on TV one more time. It does’nt feel like the institution of country music feels history is not important. It’s always just the new to last 15 years or artists that get airtime. I miss seeing Glen sing and his entire generation of great country artists. Jeff In Kansas City
Saw Glen at Southend – SUPERB!! all the great songs sounding as good as ever and what a talanted family! The support to Dad was something he can be rightly proud of.Glen: We will miss you in the UK but your music will go on and on!
One of the greats, nice to see him getting the tribute. Had the pleasure of meeting Glen after a concert in Sheffield, UK. Such a talented artist, but also very nice with his fans, a true star
In reference to Jim’s comment….It would be in poor taste to perform at one’s own tribute. If you want to hear the real deal…check out his concert tour…and see him in person !
His music always “gets me”…every time I hear him sing. One of America’s best song stylists. We love ya’ Glen !
Watched the CMA’s last night and was brought to tears by the performance for
and with Glenn Campbell. I know that Keith Urban is due to have throat surgery,
but he came thru with flying colors, along with Brad Paisley and Vince Gill. This
was truly a great tribute to a wonderful and beloved country music star!
I wish he would have sung at last night’s cma’s. Glen Campbell was my first favorite country singer. I remember getting his albums on 2 track tape back in the 60′s. I will always love Glen Campbell.
Wow. I grew up with Glen Campbell music. Still have the album, cover and all. Had a good cry watching the show last night. Not just because of Glen Campbell’s presence but because of my fabulous memories associated with his music. God bless you, Glen!!!!
What a beautiful tribute! I’m glad video was ran of his past life, despite Alzheimer’s, I’m sure he recognized his contributions. I wish I could have done something like this for my mother — filmed all the people she affected and who remembered her love and big heart. I cried, too! Download the “Ghosts on the Canvas” song at this site — the first verse, if you’ve ever loved someone with dementia, will make you cry.
It was a wonderful and well deserved tribute. The performers were great but I would have liked to see the slide show in he background.
I am so fortunate I got to see Gleen in Reno in October. The show was great. I am so happy to see his kids touring with him for his farewell concert. God Bless You Glen. I will sure miss you. The world will miss your great voice when you finish your tour. God Bless your great kids for being great musicians. Your daughter has a beautiful voice.
Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb forever !!!
A beautiful tribute that was the highlight
of the show. It was so emotional .
I wished that Glen and Jimmy
Webb would have sang some songs.
Glen’s wife Kim is beautiful !
Growing up in a small TN town……I was 12 in 1968. Glen is the reason I started playing guitar.
Watching his TV show and hearing those songs definitely lit a fire. At that time the Nashville Sunday paper would publish lyrics and chords to songs once a week. I remember being thrilled when they published ‘Gentle on My Mind’. My first concert was with my parents to see him at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. What a thrill ! Back then I don’t know if he was country or pop, but he was GOOD ! That’s all I knew. On one of his TV shows, he took a few moments to praise the 12-string guitar. I’ll never forget. Later in high school, I told my Mom “if I had a 12-string, I could win the talent show next week”. Guess what, me and Joe won the talent show.
I was pretty misty thru the whole CMA tribute, but really lost it when Glen and Jimmy Web hugged near the end. Now if John Hartford could have been there, I wouldn’t be able to type.
I paused the Tivo just to find a place to spew all this history and emotion. I agree, it’s a shame he didn’t get to sing. Man, talk about being an influence on your LIFE ! ! !
Glen, Why would you call your last album Ghost On A Canvas? You are certainly alive and look good to me, not as good aS YOU DID IN 70s, but neither do I April 11, I will be 70 years old. I am not to far behind you, so neither of us knows what GOD has in store for us, I woul like to see you in person one more time and get my 45 signed by you, I have had a long time… Love to All Mell
I literally cried when I saw Glen having difficulty walking up to the stage. He has always been such a vibrant and active professional, seeing what a debilitating disease can do to such a wonderful person is horrible. I, too, wondered why they gave him his guitar and then went to commercials. That was like waiting for the monent when a NASCAR race starts and they change to a tennis match. What the …?
Well folks…to me it appeared that he was somewhat “confused” and probably is the reason he
wasn’t given the opportunity to sing. He is dealing with dementia and if any of you know much
about this condition, things change from minute to minute, depending on what stage of the
disease he’s at. Don’t be quite so harsh with your comments regarding his not singing but that’s the real deal. He didn’t appear to be the same Glen as we knew him from many years back, that would seem to me to be the reason for his not singing. They did the right thing even
though we all would have loved to see him perform once again, me included. It brought tears to my eyes as it was obvious to me he wasn’t “with it”. So very sad to see this happening to him, a country icon.
Love You, Glen.
Not allowing Glen to sing last night was disrespectful to a man who’s given so much, and continues to do so despite his health. Nashville has lost it’s heart and thinks with it’s wallet.
Glen Campbell is the best country artist of all time. He still can sing better than most of the current artist today. He is one of a kind. I have loved him since the 60′s.
I cried. God bless you Glen. And He will.
I thought the tribute was well-intended and well done. Because I don’t know any facts concerning the CMA and the three guys doing a tribute but not having Glen Campbell sing, I’ll say nothing about it. But Glen is a beautiful, genuinely musical singer and musician, and he still obviously loves music and loves to sing. What a gift music is to him and through him. I would give almost anything I have to be able to express to him my appreciation and love and respect. May God bless and keep Glen and his family, and may God’s amazing grace surround and fill him always!
Maybe Glen was just not up to singing or stated he did not want to sing. He is awsome . a wonderful gentleman, and he probably wanted to give the limelight to those who were up for the awards. He had his time but deserves all honor they gave him. Alzheimers is a horrible illness and can not be controlled by the person who has it. I pray he will be up to the tour. Wish he was coming to Phoenix! I will always remember you Glen Campbell!
A Fantastic tribute to the the Rhinestone Cowboy!!! Shame he did not sing.He was awesome here in the UK on Sunday. A real special experience it was….Take care Glen Campbell and family!
People he has Alzheimers… he probably cant remember the words or has trouble singing.. They didnt want to embarrass him. He is a legend…
Don’t make assumptions. You need evidence. Been to one of his latest concerts? Does not appear to be the case. He is in superb form. Fantastic tour, loved by all on his UK tour. Just read the many reviews..
Saw Glen last week at the Brighton Dome in Brighton England, the show was unbelievable, he was in fine voice. I wish him and his family the best for the future one day at a time.
As good as it was…..it needed the voice of Glen. Make no mistake, he is in superb form, and it is a crying shame why he was not given the opportunity to sing.
Every time I hear Glen sing, it takes me back to carefree days of childhood. He was my idol and I still have tender memories of concerts, his music and just his voice. Was so disappointed he wasn’t asked to sing at the CMA’s. What were they thinking?? He is one of the greats and has made a lasting impact on many lives. May God bless Glen and his family.
I have been listening and followed Glen since the first time I saw him perform King of Kansas City on the TV program Hullabaloo – I have always been a wannabe musician / singer – and in my opinion, I ‘m convinced that there will never ever be an artist singer and musician of the caliber and talents as Mr. Campbell. I can’t wait to see Glen perform again.
Having been a fan of Glen’s for 40 plus years, this tribute brought tears to my eyes. He is dealing with Alzheimers with “Amazing Grace”
The man and his music are greatly loved. It is uplifting to see such expresions of appreciation. Thanks to Glen and all involved.
Very disappointed with organizers of the CMA. No other performer was cut off except for him. He deserved so much more…Brenda is right…the performers today can’t hold a candle!!
Ahhh Shelley, I understand how you feel but, that was a just a little harsh on some very great names. Each brings with them, their own uniqueness which is why we like them so much. Glen? ……..he IS in a category unto himself!
Wow…Absolutely blown away…Missed the show but so glad to see this, will treasure it and LOVE Ghost on the Canvas!
The most beautiful singing voice that ever was, the most beautiful singing voice that will ever be!!!
Fantastic Performer. I had the Great Pleasure of seeing Glen and his Children at Plymouth Pavillions last week. Have been a fan of his all my life.
Ghost on the Canvas is a wonderfull song with beautiful lyrics, the album is superb.
Best wishes to Glen and his family
So much more content and “story” of Glen and his life and career could have been told. Still, to take the time to honor him and pay special tribute was proper and appropriate. Saw Glen when he played in Houston with the Houston Symphany several years ago now. Your Texas cousins on the Mouser side decendents follow you and are proud. My favorite song is “Jesus and Me”
How wonderful was that!Love you Glen!
I agree … great tribute! Would have loved to see him sing! U ROCK, Glen!!!
more proof (as if it were needed) that none of today’s acts can hold a candle to Glen. Never be another like him. Hope the Goodbye Tour goes on forever.
Seeing this reminds me of how much Glen’s music is embedded in my memories of the times when those songs were big hits…I was just a kid then…and the world seemed bigger…the sky was bluer…And the magic of the music made the pictures in the songs come to life in my mind…Although i never met Glen Campbell…His music was…and is a part of my world…Thanks Glen…for making all of that great music!…You did good!
Over five decades, I really can’t think of a more talented entertainer than Glen Campbell. His voice is unique and his interpretation of words and music is second to none. His guitar playing is out of this world, not to mention his excellent handling of the bagpipes!
Absolutely right…Glen should have been between those guys singing the songs together. For God’s sake, he’s on tour. They unintentionally “shunned” him!
Yours was one of the first “albums” I ever bought with my own money. I fell in love with a farm boy in Michigan over “Witchita Lineman”….thanks for so many memories!!!
I’m also a huge Glen Campbell fan & I listened to his songs as a farm boy in Upper Michigan back in the ’60s and ’70s. My wife and I finally got to see him in Sault Ste Marie, Mi. last month and he was terrific! Glen’s voice and guitar playing are still outstanding. “The CMA really dropped the ball by not having him onstage singing his signature songs!”
I have always loved Glen Campbell and loved the tribute. I also cried. Question: I have an LP of his that has gospel songs on it — the album cover is almost totally white with just his face on it. It has “Mama Sang Bass”, “I Believe”, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and lots of other wonderful songs. Does anyone know which album I’m talking about and if it’s available on CD anywhere? I would love to have it on CD.
My heart gose out to Glen Campbell and his wife. Alzheimer’s is a very sad disease. I am a wife of man that is 60 with early onset alzheimer’s. He is one of the best singer. Thanks Glen and God bless you and your family
An absolutely amazing artist, entertainer and folks we are going to be worse off when he leaves us. I have been a fan since the early 60′s. The news of his illness is tragic and I just hope and pray for him and his family that his last days are truly great days filled with love, laughter, music and memories. God Bless you Glen, you have been one of our generations TRUE GREATS. You belong in the listing of the true greats!
Shame on you CMA for not giving Glen Campbell the chance to sing. That was a horrible end to an awesome tribute.
Very nice of them to do this, try their best.
But none of those guys even came close to Glen’s heart-tugging versions.
Very nice tribute to Glen! I wish they would have included “Rhinestone Cowboy”! They could have had Glen sing that along with Keith, Brad and Vince. Love you Glen!!! I’ve seen you 3 times in concert and always been blown away!
I am glad they did a tribute to Glen. He will always be the greatest to me! It is sad, due to the illness. But he has given his fans so much with tours, new cds, and meeting us backstage. Awesome man, genuine, loves what he does. It will be a sad day when he can no longer sing or play, due to memory. Thankful for all the joy he has given me through his songs and life. Thanks Glen!
I am the biggest Glen Campbell Fan. Weird but my favourite song of his is “Sing”. Awesome. And “Where’s the Playground Susie?” is second.
He can still sing! He’s touring right now (his “Farewell Tour”) and he’s still great.
Anybody having the chance to see his farewell tour should do it because it probably will be the last time any of us will ever again get the chance. My wife and I saw the first show of his tour in Moncton, NB and it was unbelieveable.
why didn’t they do rhinestone cowboy ?
Very emotional for Me!!! Glen is one of a kind!! Vince did a great Job!!!! Glens tunes are hard to sing.
Glen is awesome! I am such a great fan of his since the 60′s and still think he is the greatest! The tribute was wonderful but I was really waiting for him to sing. I am going to see one of his fairwell concerts when he comes to Florida.
I thought it was a first-class tribute. Wow – a full-sized Glen Campbell orchestra with Jimmy Webb. Brad, Keith and Vince did a great job. But Vince is right, no one can sing a Jimmy Webb song like Glen Campbell. They even had a Glen Campbell model Ovation guitar sitting in the background. I too wished he had sung a song. Did you hear the crowd roar when he put on his guitar. I too think a Kennedy Honor Tribute is in order. How do we make that happen.
Could have cut some of the lame skits from the hosts & allowed Glen Campbell to sing
I think it was because of time on ABC, but they should allowed more time for the tribute
Maybe he couldn’t sing due to his illness but it would have been a treat if he could and would have sung. The tribute was great and I now I would like to see a Kennedy Center Tribute.
Him and his children put on an awesome show on Ellens and he sang so good!!!!why didn’t they show his family singer also!!!
I waited through the whole boring show expecting to hear Glen sing and was so disappointed that he wasn’t asked to join them. What were they thinking?! Vince and Brad did an amazing job, but I thought Keith sounded horrible. They should have let Glen sing it! When Glen was called up on stage, he seemed ready to play and then kind of confused. So sad.
Keith is having a polyp removed from his vocal cord near the end of the month so he wasn’t sounding as aussome as he usually does. I’m sure he wanted to still participate since Glen is one of his idols.
Yes it was!!!we also waited for the same and most important part of the show!!!!we couldn’t believe it!!!
i too was soooo disappointed he did not sing! i loved hearing him sing all my high school years.
Keith has a polyp on his vocal cords which will require surgery in the near future. That’s why he sounded as he did. Remember he already sang earlier in the evening.
Keith has throat problems and needs surgery, if i remember right from a news clip on him…so, not his fault
Great tribute by great artists. I cried my head off! I hope someone puts together an hour long TV tribute during the coming year. Glen deserves it.
they ruined it by not letting him sing
You never sing at your own tribute! Poor form, and Glen’s too classy for that.
I agree SirHattimus. Glen ”is” too classy to sing at his own tribute and whatever went wrong there was no fault of his but the protective attitude that so many fans have towards him says as much as the tribute itself.
Great tribute,CMA messed it up when they did’nt allow him to sing.What were they thinking?
I wanted him to sing also…it was his tribute and he was all ready to go…should of happened.
That was awesome! Keep up the amazing music!
Wonderful tribute to a great artist Glen Campbell who deserves it more that most..
why the hell did they not get him too sing when he got on stage?
UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME. What a wonderful tribute. You ROCK GLEN!
