I was surprised to learn that Glen Campbell, Country's Rhinestone Cowboy, was once a replacement member of The Beach Boys!  It's fun finding out tidbits of info to share with you about our Solid Gold Saturday artists.  I chose Glen Campbell because he is our birthday boy this week, turned 77. 

Recently, Glen Campbell and his daughter, Ashley visited with the U.S. Special Committee on Aging for a hearing about Alzheimer's. His daughter Ashley Campbell  accompanied him to Washington to testify at the hearing on behalf of the family.

He went public with his Alzheimer's diagnosis about two years ago, unfortunately, due to the disease, Glen will not be touring any longer.  I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to meet and introduce him when he was at Black Bear recently.

You should note that he does have a new album planned for a July 30 release, entitled,, "See You There". Be sure to pick it up, it's sure to be a collector's item!

Here's Glen looking young and dapper in his Rhinestone Cowboy video.  ENJOY!
