Ladies and gentlemen, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. It’s time again for Studio Tenn to take their famous Legacy Series to “The Mother Church of Country Music,” Nashville’s world- famous Ryman Auditorium! Making its inevitable two-night return, the tribute serves as the fifth edition of the series and honors the timeless talents of the Rhinestone Cowboy himself, Glen Campbell.

“We’ve been wanting to pay tribute to Glen Campbell through our Legacy Series for years now,” Studio Tenn Artistic Director Matt Logan said, recounting his inspiration for choosing to celebrate Campbell’s career. “His powerful voice, songwriting, and personality won the hearts of country music fans for decades, and Studio Tenn hopes to do the same. We couldn’t be more grateful to bring The Glen Campbell Legacy: A Tribute to the Rhinestone Cowboy to audiences all across Middle Tennessee as a celebration of his legacy, influence, and artistry.”

Led by the best of Nashville talent, this year’s Legacy tribute ventures away from its usual classic theatricality to bring audiences a new concert experience unlike any other, all while celebrating one of the most acclaimed country music artists of all time.

Logan, who also acts as the director and designer of the concert, spoke exuberantly about Campbell’s impact on country music and the City of Nashville, noting even more how Campbell is an impeccable choice for their illustrious Legacy Series.

“Campbell is a cultural icon, and his music has helped mold Nashville into a cornerstone for country music,” said Logan. “He’s a musician whose influence has reached not only audiences from all over the world, but many of the great artists of today like Keith Urban and Vince Gill.”

Logan was also excited to reveal new information on the production, mentioning the involvement of those closest to Campbell in the production. “We’ve got some amazing talent already joining us on stage, but audiences will really be able to get a closer, more personal look at the artistry of Glen Campbell with many of his family and friends at our side. Names like Ashley Campbell, Carl Jackson, and Steven Curtis Chapman, to mention a few.”

The venue will house The Glen Campbell Legacy June 30 and July 1 and serves as a prime location to pay tribute to the music and songwriting of timeless artists such as Campbell, who continue to resonate with audiences today.
