Cotton Pickin' Kids Perform 'Gentle On My Mind'

Take a step back in time as Cotton Pickin’ Kids perform the Glen Campbell classic, ‘Gentle On My Mind.’

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.

Glen Campbell originally released ‘Gentle On My Mind’ in 1967 and it became an overnight success. He even won 2 Grammy awards that year for the popular song.

“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”

Today, this talented bluegrass family band is putting their own spin on ‘Gentle On My Mind.’ Time and time again, The Cotton Pickin’ Kids have blessed us with their beautiful covers and unique sound.

“And it's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that are dried upon some line
That keeps you in the backroads
By the rivers of my memory that keeps you ever gentle on my mind”

People are already loving this unique rendition of ‘Gentle On My Mind.’ One viewer wrote, “Nothing better then y'alls harmony & instrumentals. LOVE IT!!!”

Another said, “I absolutely LOVE the arrangement you guys did on this!!! Beautiful harmonies!!!! Such strong voices from each of you!!!”

What an incredible performance from this musical family.
