The Rhinestone Cowboy opens up in this exclusive tribute to John Wayne and True Grit

During the 1960's, Glen Campbell's country music career reached new heights as his singles continually soared to the top of the Billboard charts. Among his many fans, one unknown to him would change his career forever. 

In this unique interview during a tribute festival for John Wayne, Campbell opens up about the first time he met John. 

"I was doing my show and I saw John Wayne walking around in a barn or something.", Campbell says. "He had his little girl with him."

He says: "Is there a Glen Campbell here? Well, my daughter wants to meet him."

Campbell gushes about how much of a fan he was of John's. Right after they met, John says to him, "You wanna do a movie?". And just like that, they both jumped into the 1969 blockbuster True Grit. John would go on to win an Academy Award and Campbell would sing the hit theme song for the film.

These two obviously had an incredible friendship and it shines in Campbell's candid memories of the western superstar.  

Check out this MUST-SEE interview in the video below. We've also included a fantastic live performance of Campbell singing the theme song "True Grit".


One day, little girl
The sadness will leave your face
As soon as you've won
Your fight to get justice done

Someday little girl
you'll wonder what life's about
But other's have known
Few battles are won alone

So, you'll look around to find
Someone who's kind
Someone who is fearless like you
The pain of it will ease a bit
When you find a man with true grit

One day you will rise
And you won't believe your eyes
You'll wake up and see
A world that is fine and free
Though summer seems far away
You will find the sun one day

Though summer seems far away
But you will find the sun one day
