This Sunday, February 11, Glen Campbell will have Blake Shelton and the Band Perry accompanying him as he performs at the Grammy Awards where he will be presented with the Recording Academy® Lifetime Achievement Award. This week saw the reissue of Glen Campbell’s critically acclaimed 2008 album, Meet Glen Campbell—expanded with exclusive bonus tracks for a special CD and digital edition—in advance of this great honor. Upon its original release in August 2008, Meet Glen Campbell was met with worldwide critical praise, and Campbell promoted the album with interviews and performances for a broad spectrum of media, including an “AOL Sessions” concert. Meet Glen Campbell’s expanded edition adds three performances from that concert (Campbell’s classic hits “Wichita Lineman” and “Rhinestone Cowboy”, and U2’s “All I Want Is You”), as well as 2008 remixes of “Gentle on My Mind” and “Galveston”. And we’ve got two copies of this album to give away to two of our lucky readers!


From the press release:
In a legendary music career that spans more than five decades, Glen Campbell has achieved chart-topping, platinum-selling pop and country success singing everyday tales of life, love, work, and heartache. Campbell has been honored with five GRAMMY Awards and trophies for Male Vocalist of the Year from both the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy Of Country Music (ACM). In addition to being inducted into the CMA’s Hall of Fame, he has been awarded its top Entertainer Of The Year honors, and the ACM has honored him with its prestigious Pioneer Award.
