Of course Glen did perform in Prescott Arkansas before that. I think in 1948 during the Forest Festival in Prescott, with Uncle Boo!

Hey Dee,
The young guy on the left looks like a very young Glen. I love these historical items. Good to see they are still being preserved.

Cool article.....one of the few articles I have seen that reference Glen in Prescott, Arkansas!

“Would you guys like to open for Glen Campbell?”

Thanks, Mike, for posting that Glen and Kim celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary on 25 October. This morning, I belatedly came across an article that mentioned that they had been married at the North Phoenix Baptist Church in Arizona and that Waylon Jennings sang "Amanda" at the wedding reception. I had not know that Waylon had attended and performed at this event. I wonder if other artists performed as well?

Following is a video link to a live performance of Waylon performing "Amanda":

After listening to the lyrics of this song, I think I can understand why it was selected.

Debby's facebook page is awesome. All those great pictures were great to view and and so glad she shared them. Some of my favorite times were watching Debby perform with Glen in Branson, Missouri.

Thx for putting up that link Cowpoke

The Edge In Documentary About Glen Campbell


The Edge, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and many other stars are in a documentary about Glen Campbell's farewell tour called I'll Be Me.

The pop-country legend was diagnosed with advanced Alzheimer's disease in 2011. The film shows live performances from his Goodbye Tour along with moments from his career and battle against the disease.

The Edge shares his admiration for the singer, who continued to perform despite his health problems: "The audience being there somehow triggers his ability to access that other part of his brain, which is incredible."

I'll Be Me, directed by James Keach, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Nashville Festival and will be in theaters on Oct. 24.

The trailer includes footage from The Edge. More information here.
