Glen Campbell is one of the biggest names in country music. He’s best known for his signature song “Rhinestone Cowboy.” Aside from “Rhinestone Cowboy,” Glen has other hit songs such as “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” Galveston,” “Southern Lights,” and “Gentle on My Mind.” He also hosted a show known as The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour from 1969 to 1972.

Glen’s incredible talent inspired a lot of people including his children. His daughter Ashley Campbell followed in his footsteps. Ashley participated in her father’s farewell tour by playing the banjo. The first single Ashley released was “Remembering.” The song became part of her father’s documentary film Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me. Her song reached number fifty-five on the US Billboard Country Airplay.

Ashley released her first studio album last May 11, 2018. The Lonely One contains thirteen tracks all written by Ashley. In addition, her album was produced by her brother Cal. Lonely One was released under Whistle Stop Records.

Ashley and Shannon’s Performance

This year, Ashley and her brother Shannon performed at Abe’s Garden, an institute for people with Alzheimer’s disease. Ashley and Shannon entertained the folks by performing one of Glen’s songs, “Gentle on My Mind.” This performance was in celebration of what would have been their father’s 82nd birthday. Ashley played the banjo and sang as the lead while her brother Shannon played the guitar and sang as back up. It’s obvious that music runs in their blood.

“Gentle on My Mind”

When Glen recorded the song, his version reached number thirty on the Billboard Country chart. Moreover, Glen’s version won four awards during the 10th Grammy Awards in 1968. In particular, he won the Best Country and Western Solo Vocal Performance and Best Country and Western Recording. Meanwhile, John Hartford brought home the award for Best Folk Performance and Best Country and Western Song.
