Glen was one of the most visible international Country stars when he hosted his own network television show for three years, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, which featured musical guests Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Neil Diamond and attracted weekly global audiences of fifty million.

He has 9 Grammy Awards including this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award and won 4 in 1967 - the first artist to win in the Country and Pop categories in the same year - for Gentle on My Mind and By The Time I Get To Phoenix, which along with the Most Played Song of the Millennium, Wichita Lineman, was enshrined in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Rhinestone Cowboy is an Academy of Country Music Song of the Year.

Glen was inducted into the 2005 Country Music Hall of Fame and has received Country Music Association Entertainer & Male Vocalist of the Year awards, multiple Academy of Country Music trophies (including the prestigious Pioneer Award) and a Gospel Music Association Dove Award.

He starred alongside John Wayne in the classic film True Grit, featured on best-seller lists with Rhinestone Cowboy: An Autobiography and was named one of CMT's 40 Greatest Men in Country Music History.

As a young session guitarist with the elite Los Angeles Wrecking Crew in the 60’s, Glen contributed to the hits of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Merle Haggard, Nat King Cole, Ricky Nelson, The Righteous Brothers & The Beach Boys. When Brian Wilson famously chose to stop touring, Glen served as his replacement on the road.
