My Two Cents: Glen Campbell

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I remember the first time I heard “Wichita Lineman” by Glen Campbell.  I had been smothered in the Beatles, when all of a sudden there was this catchy tune by some country artist playing on the radio.  At just over two minutes long, I thought I could listen to it over and over and over again.  What a great song!  I mean, who writes a song about an electrical lineman? 

Glen Campbell passed away August 8th, 2017 at age 81.

The Opry’s four sets are a combination of well-established Opry members and next wave artists who are hoping to join that exclusive circle.
