Jake Owen Pays Tribute to Glen Campbell


August 8, 2017, was a tough day for Jake Owen. As it was for much of the country community.

The singer learned of the death of Glen Campbell and felt compelled to share his own personal tribute to the legend.

“We lost one of the greatest voices, guitar players and entertainer that our world has ever seen,” he wrote on social media about Glen Campbell. “It seems this year has been filled with these moments where we’ve lost people that have enriched our lives with their pure talent. This is a huge loss for country music. Maybe Glen and Merle are picking a tune together right now. If so, I bet my Grandad is right there with a front row ticket. Life is short. Enjoy it while it’s here.”

Between his kind words and his rendition of “Wichita Lineman,” I’m in tears.
