Read Keith Urban’s Heartfelt Tribute To Glen Campbell

We lost a great one yesterday.

Many artists have taken to various forms of social media (and some even the stage) to honor the career of Glen Campbell. Keith Urban’s tribute was special.

“What a powerful artistic and personal journey Glen Campbell’s passage has been. As a role model, singing guitar player he was a big influence on me. His blend of genres created his own sound and style and his ability to entertain wasn’t limited to the stage. He blazed real trails through film (and especially television) where his charismatic southern charm and personality fit perfectly.

The night I won my first country music award, I got back to my hotel room and there was a fax on the floor.

“Welcome to the award winning world kid. You got it.” Glen Campbell.

Universal music, universal stories, universal spirit. No wonder he was a global superstar. I love Glen for so many reasons – but above all, for his humanity. My thoughts and prayers are with Kim and all of his extended family today. May peace be with you all. Go rest high on that mountain, Glen.”
