Hey Cowpoke, Alison Krauss is a fine singer. I bought her album "A hundred miles or more" which was released in 2007. I guess this was a collection of tracks brought together onto the same album, so it wouldn't count as a studio album per se. Her cover of Gentle, I would think, will be a great track on the album. No doubt she will include some great banjo and fiddle playing on the track as well as her wonderful voice.

Hi Mike, from what year is that movie? I have heard Jerry Reed fans says that Jerry run out of steam a little with his musical career. Maybe that's why he went on to make more movies. Glen really stayed ambitious until around the late 90s. Then he too ran out of steam for about a decade when Julian Raymond came along and fired him up again.

I sometimes wonder... what would have happened if Julian had came along ten years earlier? Would we have had more late career masterpieces by Glen?

You just reminded me Cowpoke, I saw a film last night called Bat*21 which starred Gene Hackman, Danny Glover and Jerry Reed. Jerry also produced the film. It struck me that Jerry went on to build a very successful film career for himself after his initial singing career was established. It would have been great to see Glen in other roles later. After Strange Home Coming, I felt Glen showed himself to be a good drama actor and I think he could have pulled it off. I guess that just wasn't where he wanted to spend his time while there were halls of fans waiting for him to sing.

In All Things Glen we should of course report that... comedian Arsenio Hall is a big... Glen Campbell fan!

“I’m actually a country music fan,” he said singing a few lines from Glen Campbell’s “Wichita Lineman.” “My folks are from Georgia and Alabama and I just love entertainment. I loved that Glen Campbell had a variety show and that his monologue was a song.

Re: Check Out This Link: A Dog Named...

"Glen Campbell" Now Starring in "Silver Belles"!

A few weeks ago I had read a review* of a new production, "Silver Belles", at the Tony Award®-winning Signature Theatre in Shirlington, Virginia. It is one of the theatres my theatre friends and I haunt from time to time. This paragraph in the review caught my eye:
...Silver Belles has easy-to-spot precursors from entertainment many a Baby Boomer may recall. A good sprinkle of Dolly Parton, more than a smidgen of Frank Capra, some dashes of recent Stephen Colbert skits, dusted with bits of Garrison Keillor. Heck, there is even a stuffed dog named Glen Campbell.

I was really intrigued about the significance of the dog's name! Why "Glen Campbell"? Unfortunately, I am not able to catch one of the performances.
However, a friend of mine saw "Silver Belles" last Sunday. I asked him why the dog was named "Glen Campbell". He said, "it is never explained why he is named Glen, but the show takes place in rural Tennessee with a country twist."

So, I guess the answer is why not Glen Campbell in a show with a "country twist"? The use of Glen's name certainly shows the extent of Glen's influence on pop culture--and the performing arts, I think! (Also, the theatre is located on Campbell Avenue; could be related to the dog's name ... or not.) :)

The production continues through December 31st. For more information, visit http://www.sigtheatre.org/.
If you attend on a weekend, check out Clyde's in the vicinity of Signature Theatre for breakfast or brunch. Great food. Woof!

From billboard.com:

In this exclusive clip from The Big Interview, Urban talks about his formative years musically, and admits that the first person to influence his writing – though he didn’t know it at the time -- was Jimmy Webb. “I sang a lot of Glen Campbell songs early on. 'Wichita Lineman,' 'Where’s The Playground, Susie?' 'Honey, Come Back.' I thought Glen wrote them all. I didn’t know,” he says candidly. "Then I saw his name -- Jimmy Webb -- on every one of his songs."

Country music star Kacey Musgraves, a Glen Campbell fan for sure, has released a Christmas album.

One of the new songs, Christmas Makes Me Cry, is a clever ballad that could easily have been lifted off Pageant Material. “I think that one sounds like Glen Campbell, the late 1960s era that I love so much,” she says, “and it was actually quite hard to get through without crying myself!

Glen Campbell's iconic song, "Try A Little Kindness", inspired Sesame Street's new uptake of it performed by American Idol's Tori Kelly. This new release is part of Sesame Street's "Learn to Love Campaign" created to remind children of all ages to remember to spread small acts of kindness throughout the year. You can listen to the new "Kindness" here!

Announcement: https://hiddenremote.com/2016/12/03/tor ... rtnership/

Official Video Description:
K is for kindness! It's a simple word, it's true, but it's amazing what a word can do! Sing along with Tori Kelly and the rest of the Sesame Street gang as they sing a song all about kindness. How will you be kind today?
