About Glen Campbell: Legendary singer and guitarist Glen Campbell brought country music to the mainstream as the genre’s first crossover star with hits like “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Wichita Lineman” and “Southern Nights.” In a legendary career that spanned more than six decades and more than 50 million records sold, Campbell, a six-time GRAMMY winner, created an indelible mark on American pop culture as a beloved musician, singer, movie star and television personality. From his time as a groundbreaking guitarist for Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and many others in the archetypical backing band The Wrecking Crew, to his decades atop the charts, to the grace he showed as he closed his career while fighting Alzheimer’s disease, there are few artists who have touched as many lives as the Rhinestone Cowboy. Campbell capped off his extraordinary career with Adiós, a studio album released in 2017 shortly before his death.
