Glen Camp­bell was a great coun­try mu­sic leg­end. He re­leased more than 70 al­bums over a 50-year ca­reer. He had a se­ries of hits in the 1960s and 1970s, in­clud­ing By the Time I Get to Phoenix; Gen­tle on my Mind; Wi­chita Line­man; Galve­ston; Coun­try Boy; and his best­selling sin­gle, Rhine­stone Cow­boy.

He made his­tory in 1967 by win­ning four Grammy Awards in the Coun­try and Pop cat­e­gories, and he took home the CMA En­ter­tainer of the Year Award in 1968.

He hosted a va­ri­ety show, The Glen Camp­bell Good­time Hour, which aired from 1969 to 1972.

We will re­mem­ber Glen Camp­bell as a great coun­try mu­sic leg­end al­ways and for­ever.

Glen Camp­bell, RIP. PAUL BA­CON HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (Hear, hear.)
