Branson’s Glen Campbell Songbook presents the unforgettable songs from the late, and much beloved, singer, songwriter, and musician who once called Branson, Missouri home! One of the area's best tribute artists, James Garrett, delivers a long list of Campbell’s best stuff. A gifted vocalist and guitarist in his own right, Garrett lovingly shares the treasured hits in such a way that even Campbell himself would be proud!
Glen Campbell was in a class all his own; he was an incredible guitar player with a beautiful tenor voice, who gave us some of the best country/pop crossover hits ever recorded, including “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Southern Nights,” and “It’s Only Make Believe.” Garrett delivers many of these classics, as well as “Honey Come Back,” “I Wanna Live,” “Try a Little Tenderness,” and other Campbell greats. And, if the name James Garrett rings a bell for you, that’s because he’s delighted Branson audiences for years with his sensational tributes to other artists we greatly miss, like John Denver, and those of superstar status still making music today, including George Strait. Every tribute that’s won us over is fantastic, but there’s something truly special about James Garrett’s nod to the legendary Glen Campbell that you must experience!
