Glen Campbell Ticket Giveaway
Tomorrow morning on the Craig & Al Morning Show we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to Glen’s show at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino. The show is this Saturday. Glen Campbell broke into the industry as one of the elite studio musicians known as “the Wrecking Crew.” He could claim invaluable musical and/or vocal contributions to classic recordings, including many of Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” projects, Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the Night,” and The Beach Boys’s Pet Sounds album. Campbell became a country crossover superstar with melancholy smashes including 1967’s Grammy-winning pair of hits “Gentle On my Mind” and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” 1968’s “Wichita Lineman,” 1975’s “Rhinestone Cowboy” and 1977’s “Southern Nights.” His stardom increased when he began hosting “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour” (CBS, 1969-1972). On the big screen, Campbell earned a Golden Globe nomination as Texas Ranger La Boeuf opposite an Oscar-winning John Wayne in “True Grit” (1969), for which he sang the Oscar-nominated theme song.
