Jeff Dayton was Glen Campbell's bandleader for 15 years and credits Glen for a "deep education in every part of being an artist". After working with Glen, Jeff continued to tour with Lee Greenwood and Kenny Chesney and has remained active in the music industry, writing, recording, performing, touring and more. Earlier this year, we posted about Jeff's new tribute concerts to Glen.

Jeff has now released a new album titled "Back To You" with 12 original songs. At this time, the album is available in digital format on CD Baby. Below is CD Baby's link if you would like to listen to excerpts from his songs and learn more about this new release. Congrats, Jeff Dayton!

What a perfect line Glen gave you, Randy. (Also true!) And it makes for a great story!
Thank you for sharing your fireman story, too. Glen's remembering you as a firefighter showed a tremendous sign of respect for you and for your profession.

All of Glen's show's were great Dee. No standout, but I do remember the time , after I stood and applauded after almost every song and the most of the rest of the audience didn't, that he turned right to me, and said " Now there's a man with good taste". And one , I shook hands with him and he remembered me from the shirt's I had wore up there in the past that said "firefighter" and he called me fireman and that made me proud that he remembered as I wasn't wearing one that night. Glen Campbell was flat out the best of the best and I'll always cherish those memories!

"I've often played Pet Sounds and cried." - Paul McCartney

"Without Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper wouldn't have happened... Pepper was an attempt to equal Pet Sounds." - George Martin

Thirty years ago, Brian Wilson put his soul right on vinyl, and nobody...not even Brian has ever been able to consistently recapture the special moment that was is and always will be Pet Sounds. - David Leaf

Brian Wilson continues to add concert dates to his 50th Anniversary of Pet Sounds Tour.
At least two concerts were added to the already jamming schedule just this week!
For more information, visits: http://www.brianwilson.com/tour

BTW, I discovered a cool website with session information identifying the Pet Sounds tracks that Glen Campbell played on as well as other detailed information related to the album.
The information may or may not be completely accurate, according to the site; however, I believe the website is worth a visit if "Pet Sounds" is an album you already dig or one you want to learn more about.
See also the footnotes on the bottom of this page regarding documentation / research / AFM contracts.

A friend of mine mentioned that he is seeing Johnny Rivers on tour, Randy. Next weekend actually.
Maybe Rivers will be in your area this year?
You are fortunate to have seen Glen Campbell in concert so many times, probably seeing most or all of the arc ("ARK" :)) of his career.
Does any one concert stand out for you?

I agree with you on that Randy, B.J. Thomas was a great performer. Did he sing a lot of gospel songs in his shows or am I thinking of someone else.

Two of Glen's musical peers that I have never seen live but wish I would have or hope to in the future is Johnny Rivers and BJ Thomas.

I consider myself lucky and fortunate to have attended as many of Glen's shows as I did.... He performed in Branson for years, then after that was able to catch him in Arkansas three more times I think it was. Probably around a dozen total shows.

Yes, still writing songs, most recently for a Grammy winning album by Daft Punk, on which he also sang.



Next to that he is president and chairman of ASCAP since 2009.

Williams is currently working with Mexican film director Guillermo del Toro and Argentine composer Gustavo Santaolalla on a stage musical adaptation of del Toro’s acclaimed film Pan’s Labyrinth.

Thanks, Cowpoke.
So what is Paul Williams doing now? Does he still write songs?
