Thanks, Cowpoke. I also am not familiar with the music of Jake Owens and respect his awareness of his heritage: "....current acts like me have an obligation to pay respect to the people who came before us."
Good question about how he would rate his own music in comparison to Glen's.

Some fans describe Glen Campbell's "Live in Concert" with the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra (2001) as one of his best live concert performances.
In this news report, Chris Hill, a member of the SD orchestra, briefly shares what it was like to work with Glen Campbell.
(Sorry if this interview was already posted.)

Was this tribute by Jake Owen already posted?

http://www.rollingstone.com/country/new ... an-w496717

And here's a recent interview, full of praise for Glen.

Not long after Glen Campbell passed away on Aug. 8, Owen posted a video of himself performing one of Campbell’s biggest hits, “Wichita Lineman,” on social media. “We lost one of the greatest voices, guitar players and entertainers that our world has ever seen,” Owen wrote in a post accompanying the video. “It seems this year has been filled with these moments where we’ve lost people that have enriched our lives with their pure talent. This is a huge loss for country music.”

“I was sitting in the front lounge area on my bus when I learned that he passed away,” said Owen. “I just grabbed my guitar and started to sing one of his songs.

“I have major respect for country music as a whole. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a part of the scene that is happening now, but current acts like me have an obligation to pay respect to the people who came before us,” he said. “I loved Glen Campbell — his voice, his music, his melodies and his guitar playing were some of the best this world has ever seen.”

PS: to be honest I had never heard of Jake Owen before. He has had a couple of number 1 hits on the country charts. His own biggest hit probably was "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" from 2011, a (i'm sorry to say) terribly superficial song devoid of any musical and lyrical depth. How would he rate his own music against that of Glen's?

Just Wow— The Glen Campbell Memorial At The CMA Country Music Hall Of Fame
Intellectual Froglegs
By Joe Dan Gorman
August 26, 2017

Blogger writes about his attendance at the memorial service held in Nashville on August 24th for Glen Campbell:
Highlight for me was Jimmy Webb —a ridiculously talented and legendary songwriter. He played piano with no accompaniment and performed Amazing Grace and Wichita Lineman.

There was a lot of love — Glen’s wife Kim is a warrior… and a strong Christian woman. In fact — a LOT of the folks in that place were strong Christians

Tucson's Jim Slone recalls Glen Campbell
By Cathalena E. Burch
Arizona Daily Star
August 9, 2017

Check out Arizona Daily Star's heartwarming interview with former DJ and radio exec Jim Slone who was one of Glen Campbell's lifelong friends beginning way back in Albuquerque. Mr. Slone shares warm memories of Glen as well as personal photographs he shot during Glen's early appearances in Tucson, Arizona. The article also includes an image of an ad for Glen's appearance at Tucson Gardens (Courtesy of Jim Slone), which provides us with a short list of songs performed by Glen in '64:
KENTUCKY MEANS PARADISE
TURN AROUND, LOOK AT ME
TOO LATE TO WORRY, TOO BLUE TO CRY
IT'S BEEN SO LONG, DARLING

Also on the ad, Glen Campbell is featured as "America's No. 1 12-String Guitarist" and the Green River Boys performed at this show, too.

Here's Glen and the Green River Boys performing It's Been So Long, Darling:

Glen Campbell Left Us an Astonishing Musical Legacy — and Invaluable Personal Story
Clash Daily
By Steve Pauwels
August 15, 2017

Glen Campbell's death was personal for Steve Pauwels:

Although I was in a public location when a friend texted news that eighty-one-year old Glen Campbell had passed away, I still reacted audibly. The contemporary music icon had been ill for a number of years, of course — in 2011, it was announced he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease — so his passing wasn’t a complete surprise. Still, the announcement took me aback — I’ve been a fan for years.


You can read Steve's story here:

Many thanks to Mr. Pauwels for reaching out to share his article with Glen Campbell Forums.

Interview with British punkrock icon Adam Ant.

Are there people from your peer group, or any of your idols, who you feel like maybe aren’t receiving the sort of credit they should be while they’re still living?

That’s quite a difficult question to answer. I mean, someone like Glen Campbell was always someone that was so consistent that you didn’t realize the body of work that he’d done. Same with Johnny Cash. When Johnny Cash passed, it was someone who had gone through so much, and they make films about them, and you discover just how great they were. It’s the longevity that they have, and the consistency that they have, and the originality that they maintain.
