Not sure if goes here. Feel free to move it if needs be Dee.
I was watching a country programme on TV and noticed Ashley playing on this Rascal Flatts song called BANJO
Here is the Youtube version. It is a Big Machine Records production so I guess that explains her involvement.

Glen Campbell’s Son Shannon Performs ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You’ as a Tribute to His Dad
By Gayle Thompson, January 30, 2015 3:00 PM

The younger Campbell delivers the song’s poignant lines...with such raw and tender emotion that it’s clear it’s a message he has been coming to terms with for a long time.

Glen Campbell’s Son Pays Tribute to His Father in Family’s Attic
Taste of Country, by Sterling Whitaker, January 30, 2015 9:00 AM

His (Shannon's) touching rendition demonstrates that the young musician — who performed onstage with his father on tour — inherited Campbell’s musical ability. Accompanied by a simple violin and light percussion, he delivers the haunting tune in an acoustic guitar and vocal arrangement that is fittingly true to the original recording.

That is a fantastic version Cowpoke. I think the violin works really well. The arrangement is basic but very effective and Shannon's voice is excellent in this. I can hear his Father's voice in Glen's younger days. I can also see that Shannon has his Dad's qualities which is a nice thought, inasmuch as something of Glen is retained in his children. His light will never fade.

Ashley and Shannon Campbell on 2-disc album set to be released Spring 2015

Way back in the summer of 1927, Victor Talking Machine Company producer and talent scout, Ralph Peer, was on a search to find and record rural American music, "music from the mountains". He traveled to Bristol, Tennessee, set up a temporary studio on a couple floors of a hat and glove company, and advertised for local country music (then known as "hillbilly") performers, really just ordinary folks with extraordinary talents, to record their music at his studio. The first session in 1927 took place July to August and attracted ballad singers, street evangelists, string bands, gospel quartets, harmonica virtuosos, Holiness preachers, blues guitarists and rural storytellers. These recording sessions, which became known as the Bristol Sessions, made unprecedented history by not only capturing the beautiful, pure essence of country music at that time in America but also by discovering some of the most revered artists in music history, The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers. These sessions provided the Carters and Rodgers with their first opportunity to record and their eventual path to stardom. In total, 19 performers recorded 76 songs and ultimately set the foundation for what became the signature sound of the entire genre of country music. Furthermore, the Bristol Sessions became such a phenomenal event that they are commonly referred to as the "Big Bang" of modern country music.

Johnny Cash referred to the Bristol Sessions as "the single most important event in the history of country music."

Now, almost 90 years later, Rusty Morrell, songwriter, with Carl Jackson are producing the album "Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited," a 2-CD album of 16 songs taken from the original 1927 Bristol Sessions for the Birthplace of Country Music and tourism officials from Tennessee and Virginia. The album includes some of Nashville’s top recording artists with Ashley and Shannon Campbell. Its release date is scheduled for this spring (2015).
