'Gentle On My Mind' Ashley Campbell Honors Dad Glen Campbell

Country singer Ashley Campbell performs the song ‘Gentle On My Mind’ in honor of her late father, Glen Campbell.

Glen Campbell was a beloved country artist known all around the world for his musical talent. His songs, such as ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ and ‘Southern Nights’ earned him much praise.

He enjoyed a long career full of success and admiration. Sadly, the world lost this great artist in 2017 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Now, Glen’s daughter, Ashley, is following in her father’s footsteps as a musician. Today, she’s backstage at the Grand Ole Opry to perform on of her dad’s most famous hits, ‘Gentle On My Mind.’

“It's knowing that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that are dried upon some line”

These words are so powerful and so iconic. Glen Campbell originally released the single in 1967 and it became an overnight success. He even won 2 Grammy awards that year for the popular song.

“That keeps you in the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind”

Even though Glen Campbell is no longer with us on Earth, his legacy continues to live on through his music. It’s so special to hear his own daughter sing such an important song for this legendary country artist.
