The Glen Campbell Legacy: A Tribute to the Rhinestone Cowboy happens June 30 and July 1. Ashley will headline the Ryman Auditorium show along with Grammy Award winners Steven Curtis Chapman and Carl Jackson. Other Campbell members and Studio Tenn favorites will join the performance that honors the Rhinestone Cowboy.
“We have been wanting to honor Glen Campbell through our Legacy Series for years now,” Studio Tenn Artistic Director, Matt Logan, said. “He is a musician whose influence has reached many of the great artists of today, much like Steven Curtis Chapman, who is joining us for the tribute. Artists like Steven bring such a personal, inspiring level to the show that only close family and friends can provide that celebrates Glen’s legacy, influence and artistry.”
For those that aren’t familiar with Jackson, he was the lead banjo and guitarist for Campbell for 12 years. Jackson is the production’s musical director and arranger for the show as well as the lead guitarist.
“When Matt Logan approached me about getting involved with the show, I knew I couldn’t pass it up. The Campbells have always been family to me and I knew I wanted to help honor and pay tribute to the great artist, musician, vocalist, entertainer, and person Glen was,” he gushes. “I feel so blessed to have Ashley, Cal and Shannon joining me for this tribute and Matt’s history with them made it the perfect addition to the show. Being able to continue Glen’s legacy with his family by my side is a huge honor.”
