Jake Owen was among the many country stars who felt moved to share touching tributes to Glen Campbell following his death on Tuesday at the age of 81. In a post on his Facebook, Jake shared a video of him giving a powerful acoustic performance of Glen’s iconic tune “Wichita Lineman” and also penned a heartfelt message for the country icon.
We lost one of the greatest voices, guitar players and entertainer that our world has ever seen. 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.
