Gaither Music Group Pays Tribute to the Legacy of Music Icon Glen Campbell with Release of Gospel Collection

NASHVILLE, Tenn. —Gaither Music Group is pleased to pay tribute to the music and legacy of music icon Glen Campbell with the upcoming release of Amazing Grace, 14 Hymns and Gospel Favorites.  The newly-compiled CD collection of gospel music favorites, scheduled to release on February 23rd, captures the heartwarming voice of this beloved musician, singer, movie star and television personality.

“I had the opportunity to get to know Glen when he was recording the songs on this gospel project,” stated Gaither Music Group founder and ASCAP Songwriter of the Century Bill Gaither.  “He was so kind and such a brilliant musician and fantastic singer.  As is true with many country singers, he got his start in the church singing hymns and gospel songs; and he sang them with conviction.  He is certainly going to be missed.”

That conviction can be heard on Amazing Grace, 14 Hymns and Gospel Favorites, which features household favorites such as “Love Lifted Me,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” “Blessed Assurance,” “Mary, Did You Know?,” “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” “Just a Closer Walk with Thee,” the title song and more.

In a legendary career that spanned more than six decades and garnered over 80 hits and more than 50 million records sold, six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Campbell created an indelible mark on American pop culture.  Country music’s first crossover star, Campbell achieved global chart-topping success through the pop, country and gospel music genres.

A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and a recipient of 10 Academy of Country Music Awards, Campbell is celebrated for scores of hits including “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Southern Nights,” “Gentle on My Mind” and “Wichita Lineman.”

From his time as a groundbreaking guitarist for Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and many others in the archetypical backing band The Wrecking Crew to his decades atop the charts, few artists have touched as many lives as the Rhinestone Cowboy, who was awarded the GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

The Amazing Grace, 14 Hymns and Gospel Favorites CD will air as part of a special television offer on DISH TV, DirecTV, AT&T U-verse, RFD-TV, GaitherTV, PBS, TBN, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN.  It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.

Amazing Grace, 14 Hymns and Gospel Favorites will be featured on Sirius XM’s enLighten Channel and will be promoted via the Gaither consumer catalog, the Gaither Music Group web site as well as label and artist social media campaigns.  The collection is exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and Universal Music and will be available at Walmart and throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.  It is currently available for pre-sale at Christianbook.com and Amazon.com.

Glen Campbell is in Alzheimer Stage 6

I’ve tried and I have failed Lord

I’ve won and I have lost
I’ve lived and I have loved Lord
Sometimes at such a cost
One thing I know
The world’s been good for me
A better place awaits
You’ll see
-Glen Campbell, Lyrics, “A Better Place”

The title cut from the project, recorded by Marty Raybon (former lead singer of Shenandoah), has already been nominated for a Country Gospel Music Fan Award, presented annually by Christian Voice magazine.

The centerpiece of this collection is a high-octane version of the title cut by Raybon, featuring Country superstar Trace Adkins, Jimmy Fortune (of The Statler Brothers), and Country Music Association Award winner T. Graham Brown. The “Working On a Building” single is already receiving a tremendous response at Christian Country, Southern Gospel and select mainstream Country radio stations and is up for Favorite Song at the CGM Fan Awards program, scheduled for April 28 as part of Country Gospel Music FanFest in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
