In 2013, Country sensation Collin Raye honored one of his heroes, Glen Campbell, with a tribute album of the Rhinestone Cowboy's iconic songs. The 12-track album titled, "Still On The Line: The Songs of Glen Campbell," was an opportunity for Raye to show his respect and admiration for Campbell. Raye released the following statement on Campbell's passing: "My hero... My Friend... Glen Campbell, is gone. My heart is heavy. A lot of memories... the end to a beautiful era in music."

Raye continued, "His incredible legacy is what we have now. Thank you, my friend, for always treating me as an equal, though clearly I am not. May God comfort your sweet family, and welcome you into His presence. The Heavenly Band, just got way better. I love you, Glen. Happy Trails."

Rowdy Yates, host of "Original Country Gold with Rowdy Yates," is offering a half hour Glen Campbell Tribute Special for immediate radio airplay. Yates recalls, "As a child I would play disc jockey. With a green hairbrush as a microphone and my Dad's Magnovox blaring many of the songs you will hear on this special. It is not an exaggeration that I literally wore a hole through a Glen Campbell album. The man and his music had that kind of impact on millions of people."

USRN has shifted its programming lineup to in order to pay tribute to Glen Campbell on its weekly program "Rick Jackson's Country Classics." Campbell was not only a Country hit-maker, but was a pop star, a TV host and a highly-regarded session musician. He is credited with helping the sound of Country Music cross over into the pop and mainstream music landscape, and all of that will be covered in a special installment of Rick Jackson's weekly show that pays tribute to the late Glen Campbell that is set to air on the weekend of August 26 and 27.

In addition, Benztown created an audio tribute to Campbell and can be heard by clicking here.
