What else is there to say about Glen Campbell?

He's one of the all-time legends of country music. He's an ace guitar player, having lent his chops to innumerable hit recordings alongside the other members of the famed Wrecking Crew. He played in the Beach Boys in 1965, filling in for a fragile Brian Wilson. He sold millions and millions of records, enjoying both critical and popular success and earning numerous Grammys. He starred alongside John Wayne and Kim Darby in "True Grit" (and again with Darby in "Norwood," also based on a Charles Portis novel). He hosted his own TV shows.

He's had his troubles and wild times, sure. But he's also had a lifelong career that brought joy to millions of music lovers.

And he's from Arkansas.

On his final tour, you can be sure the Little Rock crowd will give him a warm welcome home.

Be sure to check out our interview with his daughter, Ashley Campbell, who joins him onstage in his band. Her group Victoria Ghost, with her brother Shannon Campbell, opens the show.
