Looking forward to listening to Jeff Dayton's new album, Cowpoke.
Another peer and friend of Glen's has also announced a special project:

Dolly Parton, the "Fairy Godmother" of country music, will release her first ever children's album 'I Believe in You' and a reissue of her children's book, Coat of Many Colors.

The 14-track album features songs of inspiration written and performed by Dolly including a new recording of her signature song "Coat of Many Colors" and a spoken audio track with Dolly reading the song's lyrics. The children's book is based on this same song and was previously released in 1996, after Dolly started the "The Imagination Library", her non-profit organization that has freely distributed over 100 million books to children in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, and Belize. According to the official Dolly Parton website, all proceeds from “I Believe in You” will support this organization's mission.

Early press reviews reveal the new album should appeal to children and adults.

What else has Dolly Parton been up to?

The ACM Honors recognized Dolly's tremendous philanthropic work with a special merit award presented to her on August 23, 2017.

Shortly after the official announcement on August 8th that Glen Campbell had passed away, Dolly Parton (with Charlie Daniels) was one of the first music artists to publicly recognize Glen's enormous legacy with a videotaped tribute that was tweeted and then picked up by major television networks and cable channels. I felt that her strong affirmations ("Glen is one of the greatest voices that ever was in the business" and "he was one of the greatest musicians") forever sealed Glen's place in the history of country music. You can watch or re-visit this recorded tribute here: https://youtu.be/Z0GAgz5hKJs.

This year is a special one for Dolly Parton: she released her first album "Hello, I'm Dolly" on the Monument label 50 years ago. Her self-assured smile pictured on the album's front cover seems to suggest Dolly knew she was destined for a long and brilliant career in country music.

Thanks Dee. That makes it easy for me to post about... Jeff Dayton, Glen's former guitarist and bandleader. Jeff is doing a tribute concert later this month in La Junta, Colorado.

And, also this month, Jeff will release an album called "Glen and Me".

Thanks Randy for that post. I never heard that song before. One of those songs that were a hit in the USA but never crossed over to the other side of the Atlantic.

On Glen's musical peers topic, it says it's locked so posting this one here. [Unlocked now and moved your post to this topic, Randy, as well as Cowpoke's reply. Thanks! ~Dee]

Didn't realize until reading on wikipedia that the song "Precious and few" by the group Climax included some of Glen's wrecking crew band mates. Happens to be one the songs I play regularly on you tube.

James Keach, producer and director of "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me" recently produced a new Hands-Only CPR training video for The American Heart Association (AHA). In addition to producing the video, a public service announcement titled "The Mix-Up", Mr. Keach also appears in the video with actor-comedian Wendi McLendon-Covey. They parody "recent award show mix-ups" (namely, "La La Land") with an important message for saving lives with CPR. You can watch the AHA video here:

i am still working on a Brian Wilson Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour post.
Can't seem to do this concert justice with words.

Meanwhile, if you would like to watch the touring concert online, a live, professionally filmed concert video was recently uploaded in HiDef on YouTube.
The concert opens with The Beach Boys performing some of their hits.
After intermission, they perform the entire "Pet Sounds" album complete with barking dogs!
They conclude the concert with a rockin' set of more Beach Boys' hit songs, the audience on their feet.
Turn UP the volume and enjoy! :D

Coming soon! A write-up by a fan who experienced "The Wall of Sound" at Brian Wilson's 50th Anniversary of Pet Sounds Tour. Final performances are coming up this year.
If you are a fan of "Pet Sounds", Brian Wilson, and/or The Beach Boys, "God Only Knows" you shouldn't miss the "Good Vibrations" at this concert!

Glen Campbell's peer, Willie Nelson, released a new studio album, "God's Problem Child" on April 28, 2017, the eve of his 84th birthday. It is his 61st studio album and has already entered the Billboard Country chart at No. 1, making it the artist's second U.S. country chart-topper in less than two years. His 2015 release, "Django and Jimmie," a musical collaboration with Merle Haggard, debuted at the top of the Billboard Country chart in June of that year. In February 2017, Willie Nelson took home the win for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin" at the Grammy Awards (see related post below).

The title track of "God's Problem Child" was written by Jamey Johnson and Tony Joe White and features vocals by Leon Russell in one of his last recordings. Alison Krauss provides background vocals on the tracks "True Love" and "Little House on the Hill". The original album title, I'm Not Dead, refers to the recurrent hoaxes announcing Nelson's death. "Delete and Fast-Forward" describes Nelson's view on the 2016 United States elections. The release includes "He Won't Ever Be Gone", a tribute song penned by Gary Nicholson for Merle Haggard.

This album is one of Nelson's first albums to address mortality and gives it both serious contemplation and humor. Happily, "Trigger" (the name of Nelson's most well-known, most-beloved guitar) figures prominently throughout the recordings and is also pictured in the liner notes for the CD format.

Billboard describes "God's Problem Child" as...
a tightly-woven, poignant collection of ruminations on aging and fading faculties that amounts to Nelson's most moving album in decades.

CMT's review (excerpt):
OK, music lovers, lift a toast or hit your applause button app in honor of the irreplaceable Willie Nelson, who tops Billboard‘s country albums chart this week with his puckishly dubbed God’s Problem Child.
God should have more kids like that.

NPR's review (excerpt):
He still sings with grace, and it's moving to hear his vocal instrument finally beginning to betray a bit of frailty in his ninth decade. Temperate, fickle and revelatory in turns, his is truly a voice to trust.

Below are two music videos promoting "God's Problem Child", released on Willie Nelson's official YT channel and representing the different emotions beautifully expressed by Willie Nelson in one of his best and most personal albums in years:
