      Third wife, Sarah, is Mac Davis' ex-wife.

      Played rhythm guitar on the Frank Sinatra classic "Strangers in the Night".

      One of 12 children.

      Before finally enjoying success on his own in the late 1960s, he was one of the top studio guitarists on the West Coast for more than a decade. A list of performers he accompanied reads almost like a who's-who of the top names of the era and includes Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, Nat 'King' Cole, Frankie Laine, Ricky Nelson, Jan Berry and Dean Torrence (aka Jan and Dean), Judy Garland, Dean Martin, The Kingston Trio (contributing a fourth voice on their 1963 hit "Desert Pete," you can easily hear him on the chorus), The Crickets and The Limeliters.

      Phenomenally successful pop/MOR singer and TV personality of the late 1960's and 1970's. His many hits from this period, all on Capitol records, include "Gentle on My Mind," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," "Wichita Lineman," "Hey, Little One," "Galveston," "Honey, Come Back," "Try a Little Kindness," and "Rhinestone Cowboy."

      An avid golfer, when not on a course, he plays gigs at venues around the United States, including at his own theater in Branson, Missouri.

      The 1964 hit "Little Honda" by The Hondells was actually recorded by a group of studio musicians, including Campbell on lead guitar and Hal Blaine on drums. The group known as The Hondells was put together for touring purposes after the song became a hit, but they had nothing to do with the actual recording of the song itself.

      Children with Kim Campbell (nee Woollen): Cal Campbell (born in 1983); Shannon Campbell (born in 1985); and Ashley Campbell (born in 1988). Cal and Shannon both have their own bands and play locally in L.A. and Phoenix (AZ), and Ashley attends Pepperdine University,in Malibu, CA, as a Theatre major.

      He has sold 40 million records and has received 12 gold albums.

      Played guitar on the soundtrack of Viva Las Vegas (1964) starring Elvis Presley.

      In the 1990s, Glen released a series of gospel albums, which opened up new vistas for the star and garnered a prestigious Dove Award.

      His eldest daughter from his first marriage, Debbie Campbell, joined his stage show in 1987 and has toured with him ever since.

      His special appearances as co-headliner at the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre in Branson draws sold-out crowds.

      In all, 40 of his albums reached the charts.

      Credited with giving country star Alan Jackson his first big break.

      When his career went into a decline, he developed a drug problem from which he recovered. In November 2003, however, he was arrested for drunk driving that included a charge of battery to a police officer, which was later dropped. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail and community service.

      Was a touring member of The Beach Boys, filling in for an ailing Brian Wilson in 1964 and 1965. He played guitar on the group's "Pet Sounds" album, among other recordings. On tour, he played bass and sang high harmony.

      Was in great demand as a session musician in the early 1960s. He was part of the famous studio musicians clique known as "The Wrecking Crew," many of whom went from session to session together as the same group.

      One of twelve children born outside the tiny community of Delight in Pike County, in a town called Billstown, then a community of fewer than one hundred residents.
      Was hand-picked by actor John Wayne to play alongside him in the western film True Grit (1969), which gave Campbell a Golden Globe nomination for "Most Promising Newcomer," and had a hit with the title song which was nominated for an Academy Award. He performed it live at that year's Academy Awards Show.

      Used to play golf with Alice Cooper every day when Glen lived in Phoenix.

      He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6925 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.

      People speak out today, like the guy that did it on the Academy Awards [Michael Moore]. They can make an ass out of themselves if they do that. I don't get mixed in with politics.

    • Glen Campbell, obviously known as an extremely,
      successful, Singer/songwriter, made a few films.
      The most significant to us, is Duke's finest hour
      as an actor, True Grit.
      Glen starred as

      True Grit(1969) .... La Boeuf

      He wasn't too bad, there have been worse actors in Duke's films,
      but he wasn't terribly convincing either, about on
      par with Rick Nelson's acting in Rio Bravo!!
      Glen was diligent and eager to learn,
      but Hathaway constantly picked on him.



      However, Duke and Glen, became good friends, and
      Duke, was soon to be seen appearing on Glens,
      many TV and Christmas specials.

      Glen also sang the fine title song.
      True Grit

      I thought Glen did rather well in True Grit, in fact, I thought I may have gone on to be in more Duke movies

      I love True Grit, my only gripe with the movie was the casting of Kim Darby - she was awful
      Windage & elevation Ms.Langdon, windage & elevation!

      Glen Campbell was always one of my favorite singers. He also toured with The Beach Boys for awhile as part of their band. It shows that he was married four times but, I thought he was married to Tanya Tucker, also. Either that or they lived together and it was a very tumultous relationship with both of them undergoing substance abuse. I've got his CD that has all his hits on it. My favorites, By The Time I Get To Phoenix, Galveston, Southern Nights, It's Only Make Believe.

      I also like Wichita Lineman as well as Country Boy (You got your feet in L. A.).

      Hi Mrs. C and thanks for posting, but the top video no longer seems to be available.

      Not sure what happened, but I just searched it again and refreshed the link. It worked once, then when I hit it to play again, it came up with the message "This video is no longer available" :glare:. I don't know what that's all about, because when I go directly to YouTube, it is definitely available.

    • Re: "True Grit" : The Remake !!!

      I just learned recently that Henry Hathaway the director of True Grit hated Glen Campbell so much that he printed all of Glen Campbell's bad takes in the film so he would never get a job acting in film again. I would say it's not a good idea to get on Henry Hathaway's bad side because I haven't seen Glen Campbell in any other film that I can remember.
    • Re: "True Grit" : The Remake !!!

      I think he did "Norwood" shortly after True Grit-I've never seen it tho. It's hard to believe a director would risk sabotaging(sp?) his own film just because he didn't like one of the actors-especially a high profile film like this one. he could just as easily had the script rewritten to kill him off (Trini lopez anyone?).
    • Re: "True Grit" : The Remake !!!

      I am No Sure Why any one wants to Take On Glen Campbell after All These Years, But Some People are Just That Way !
      Duke Himself ask Glen to be in The Film and at this time Duke Got What He Wanted !!
      And Why Would They Have Glen Campbell do the Theme Song for The Film if Hathaway Hated Him That Much and then Put His Name On The Film ?


      Below will show You What Glen Campbell had to Say about being in The Film, and then Sings The Theme Song !!!
