Glen Campbell: Wichita Lineman

Glen Campbell—singer, musician, songwriter, TV star and more—passed away today, but leaves behind an incredible legacy thanks to his successful career which spanned six decades. Campbell released 70 albums and sold over 45 million records—and in 1968 even outsold the Beatles. Straddling country and pop music Campbell had many successes over the years—plenty with other people’s songs, and several with frequent collaborator Jimmy Webb. One such tune was “Wichita Lineman,” which was released in 1968 and subsequently covered by countless artists.
