‘Adiós’ sees Glen Campbell putting his spin on several classic songs including “Don't Think Twice It's All Right,” inspired by Jerry Reed's version of Bob Dylan's timeless tune and “Everybody's Talkin', a banjo-filled take on the song that Campbell never recorded but famously performed on the "Sonny & Cher Show” in 1973 with a 19-year-old Carl Jackson. Campbell's daughter Ashley plays banjo on the song and joins her dad on several tracks on the album.
Other songwriters featured include Roger Miller with “Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me),” which begins with a home recording of Miller singing the tune at a guitar pull before going into Campbell's rendition with Vince Gill on harmonies, Dickey Lee's honky tonk heartbreaker “She Thinks I Still Care,” and Jerry Reed's Johnny Cash hit “A Thing Called Love.” Willie Nelson joins his old pal for a poignant duet of Nelson's 1968 “Funny How Time Slips Away” while Jackson tells Campbell's life story in “Arkansas Farmboy.”
“I wrote ‘Arkansas Farmboy’ sometime in the mid-to late-‘70s on a plane bound for one of the many overseas destinations I played with Glen between 1972 and 1984,” reveals Jackson. “The song was inspired by a story that Glen told me about his grandpa teaching him 'In The Pines’ on a $5 Sears & Roebuck guitar when he was only a boy. That guitar led to worldwide fame and fortune, far beyond what even some in his family could comprehend.”
‘Adiós’ was a labour of love and a way for Glen Campbell, the Rhinestone Cowboy, to have one more chance to do what he loves to do and leave a musical gift for fans. Glen, who turned 81 on April 22, is in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease. He lives in Nashville where he is surrounded by his loving family and getting the very best of care.
