Glen Campbell celebrated the holidays at home Nashville with wife Kim and their family. The music icon and his family have much to be thankful for with so many achievements in 2014. The Campbell’s welcomed the world into their home this year, revealing Glen’s battle with Alzheimer’s through the critically-acclaimed documentary “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me”. Released in October to theaters across the country, the film recently earned a Critics’ Choice nomination for Best Documentary Feature.
The country-crossover star is also among the latest inductees into America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame. He’s part of the organization’s recently announced third class of members, along with Linda Ronstadt, the Eagles, and The Everly Brothers. Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, the Righteous Brothers, and the Four Seasons are also among the 14 artists recognized this time around. Artists who charted a song more than 40 years ago are eligible for induction. Nominees are selected by a panel of musicians, disc jockeys, and journalists, but the public picks the inductees.
During his career Glen enjoyed a great deal of country-pop crossover success. He topped both the country and Adult Contemporary charts with “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston,” while his hits “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights” went to number one on Billboard’s country, A-C, and Hot 100 charts. And Glen isn’t the only country star to earn induction. Previous inductees include Johnny Cash, Brenda Lee, Patti Page, and Elvis Presley.
