Welcome, goodtimemattie, and thank you for sharing your memories of the rockin' Glen and Jerry Reed concert as well as hearing Glen sing "True Grit" live. There are at least several fans on these forums who would have given anything to see Glen and Jerry perform.
I remember "Mattie" making a big impression on me, too, because strong female characters, particularly in western films, were not common in the late sixties. Mattie was an inspiring role model for us, wasn't she?
How beautiful to tie in Glen's "exit" with his being a man of True Grit. So very true! The song itself must have meant a lot to him because he included it in his set list on the Goodbye Tour.
Thank you again, goodtimemattie.
