Glen Campbell’s swan song is taking him back to the Hot 100. Billboard.com says the country star’s final track, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” is debuting at number 90 on the list to become his first song in 33 years to land on the chart. Glen’s last track to grace the Hot 100 was “I Love My Truck,” which spent three weeks on the list in the summer of 1981, peaking at number 94. However, Campbell isn’t setting a record with his lengthy absence from the chart. The Chipmunks have that distinction. The animated rodents arrived on the Hot 100 in 1962 with “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late),” and didn’t appear again for 46 years, with the 2008 remake of the holiday song.
“I’m Not Gonna Miss You” is Campbell’s 37th song to crack the Hot 100. Ten of his tracks peaked in the top five, while two — 1975’s “Rhinestone Cowboy” and 1977’s “Southern Nights” — topped the chart. He co-wrote and recorded “Miss You” for the documentary “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me,” which chronicles his battle with Alzheimer’s and his final tour. The film will open in Nashville and New York on Friday before going into wider release.
