He represented the best of the pop and the best of country, and he pulled people in from both sides. It was a great thing for country music, and frankly, for pop music. Campbell racked up 48 country hits and 34 pop hits under his belt between 1967 and 1980 – a remarkable accomplishment, considering such versatility in reaching both audiences predated the new country trend that Garth Brooks and others would develop in the early 1990s. In fact, Campbell’s 2010 album, Ghost on the Canvas, released following his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, features songs written for him by latter-day rock statesmen Robert Pollard of Guided by Voices, Paul Westerberg of the Replacements, Jakob Dylan, among others, and features guitars by Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick. Campbell waited until this year to release Adiós, his final album, which came out in June.

Songwriting Legends In Their Own Words. April 22, 1936 - August 8, 2017. Before he was the champ, Ali released an album called I Am The Greatest!, but his musical influence is best heard in the songs he inspired. Adam Young of Owl CitySongwriter Interviews. Is Owl City on a quest for another hit like "Fireflies?" Adam answers that question and explains the influences behind many others.

The late, great Glen Campbell remains one of the most versatile talents in country music history. Even with its horns and slick production values, this song shows how the best country singers could hitch their wagons to the themes and tunes of the folk revival that helped popularize roots music for young rock 'n' rollers. 7. "Southern Nights". This fantastic song from the Rhinestone Cowboy album seems to argue that Campbell never stopped being a country boy, even when personal issues and scathing rumors hogged tabloid headlines. 5. "By the Time I Get to Phoenix". The top five here all define Campbell as a performer and frankly are interchangeable.

Glen Travis Campbell (April 22, 1936 – August 8, 2017) was an American rock and country music singer, musician, songwriter, television host and actor. He is best known for a series of hits in the 1960s and 1970s, and for hosting a music and comedy variety show called The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on CBS television from January 1969 through June 1972. During his 50 years in show business, Campbell released more than 70 albums.

Unlike many of his country music peers, Glen Campbell recorded several of his hits outside of Nashville. Campbell moved to Los Angeles in the late '50s to be a studio musician. This song represents the greatness of country music storytelling, and although it didn't cross over like many of his other singles, we feel its impact and lyrics justify its placement on our list of the best Glen Campbell songs. 3. "Gentle on My Mind". From 'Gentle on My Mind' (1967). Gentle on My Mind" dominated the 1968 Grammy Awards. Songwriter John Hartford won a Grammy for his own version of the song in the Best Folk Performance category. Then, the song earned Single, Song and Best Male Vocal Performance thanks to the hit recording by Campbell.

Of course, Campbell was an even bigger country star than he was a pop star, but this collection focuses on the tracks that became pop crossover hits. Twenty-four of his 39 singles to reach the Top 40 on Billboard's country chart are included. Among the 15 not included are such Top Ten entries as "Bonaparte's Retreat" and "Manhattan Kansas," which failed to cross over pop.
