Posted in A Day in the Life, Future Legends, Music Blogosphere | No Comments »

While checking out the Stereogum blog today, I learned that country music legend Glen Campbell is coming out with a contemporary covers record:

“Country Music Hall of Famer, “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Gentle On My Mind” crooner, True Grit actor, ex-host of The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, and all-around music legend Glen Campbell has himself a contemporary covers collection…On Meet Glen Campbell, the septuagenarian gives U2, Foo Fighters, the Replacements, John Lennon, Jackson Browne, Travis, and the Velvet Underground, among others, the Campbell treatment.”

Here’s the video trailer from YouTube:
