More Glen in the Press:

 

“If you weren't crying just a little by the time the tribute made its way from that to Keith Urban's "Wichita Lineman" and Brad Paisley singing "Galveston" before inviting Campbell up on stage, you may not have a heart.” - azcentral

 

 

“Campbell is one of country's highest profile hitmakers, with such classic songs as "Galveston," "Wichita Lineman," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Southern Nights" and "Gentle on My Mind." As he and his wife Kim looked on from the audience at the 45th CMA Awards show at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Campbell appeared to enjoy and appreciate his tributes.” - CMT

 

“Campbell held back proud tears as he watched from his seat in the audience as a photo montage rolled by on a big screen above the performers during the set.” - ContactMusic

 

 

“And while all the moments were strong and sincere, the most show-stopping of them all was one in which Glenn Campbell was honored.” - Entertainment

 

“Campbell gave a thumbs-up and could be seen singing along to Paisley’s version of “Galveston.” Seated at the piano was Jimmy Webb, who wrote some of Campbell’s biggest hits ... ” - Entertainment Weekly

 

 

“Today’s country music wouldn’t be what it is without the iconic stars that led the way, like Glen Campbell, who changed the face of the industry with a string of Top 10 hits in the 1960s and ’70s.” - Taste of Country

 

“Campbell, who mouthed the lyrics from his seat in the audience, was then called on to the stage with his wife of nearly 30 years, Kim Woollen, to strum the guitar.” - People

 

 

“The camera kept flashing to Campbell watching in the stands, and he seemed to be holding back a tear. Songwriter/composer Jimmy Webb performed with them, and the songs had their restrained, orchestrated lushness.” - LA Times
