Glen Campbell has been one of the biggest stars in country music for decades. He had a lot of unique abilities both in singing and playing. And he was also a classic entertainer and showman. He could act and he could do many other things that endeared him to millions around the world.
He’s coming up on the end of his life, which we all will at some point in the not-so-distant future. I think it was pretty cool that he wanted to stay active through the last few years. He really wanted to connect with fans. Here is a song he put out a short time ago.
I’m Not Gonna Miss You – Glen Campbell
There are classic elements of Glen Campbell in this song. It also reminds me a little bit of the Eagles and even a little bit of some of the things the Beach Boys did back in the day. That last comparison could be off, but that’s what I was reminded of.
There is a lot of heart in this song. Glen could always seem to put all the outside forces aside when it came to performing a song. He could really connect with the song and what it means and that’s one of the reasons so many people loved him as a performer. They could feel what he was feeling when he sang and a connection was formed.
Great song her from one of country’s true icons.
