Thanks, Randy! Glad you enjoyed the Simpsons vid, too! I had been searching for this episode for years, but only found a different episode that has a few notes of WL playing in the background.

I agree...those performances on the 2012 Grammy Awards' segment that honored Glen Campbell were great and also ones for the history books, as they say. (I also really like Band Perry's version of "Gentle" on the new EP.)

Hey, let's keep Cowpoke, the master of "Check Out This Link" on his toes...let's all post the cool links that we find! :lol:

By the way, if you or anyone is wondering what happened to the old forum's topic, Poster to Poster, that topic is now the "Hitching Post" forum on this board.

That is a funny one Dee of the Simpson's and I was totally floored at how great both the Band Perry's version of Gentle and Blake Shelton's version of Southern Nights were on the Grammy's. And of course as we all remember when the spotlight went on Glen singing Rhinestone he stole that show. What really caught me eye that night was the love and respect they all had for Glen. I've always liked this topic "Check out this Link". There for awhile I was trying to compete with Cowpoke at putting up new stuff but found he is the master of the web-search.

I sincerely Thank You both,
Randy :D

Background about Ashley Campbell and how it came to be that she picked up the banjo and then later toured with her Dad:

Of course, I disagree totally with this writer about "Wichita Lineman". But two of the videos are hilarious, I think, especially the one with the Simpsons:

P.S. Check out the comments, too, and the Lawrence Welk show's version of WL. Oh, dear. :lol:

How about The Meters' soul-infused version from 1970?
