Young Waylon Jennings And Glen Campbell Perform Heartwarming Duet In Perfect Harmony

Beginning in 1969, Glen Campbell ruled the ratings with his television show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. The show ran until 1972, and featured great music, hilarious bits, and lots of special guests.

In the 1990s, several country stars got together, including Crystal Gayle, Waylon Jennings, Glen Campbell, and Willie Nelson, to talk about their beginnings and play some music.

Jennings took over the mic to thank Campbell for hosting the Goodtime Hour back in the day.

“I know you remember the Glen Campbell Good Time Hour,” he said to everyone. “A bunch of us was just hangin’ around here in limbo. We couldn’t get anything goin’ up or down in Nashville. Glen had that show – didn’t have to do anything for anybody, but he had some guy who was struggling along in Nashville. He never forgot where he came from. He helped us all try to get started.”

Things took a funny turn when Jennings told everyone that Campbell didn’t pay them. Laughter erupted and as the camera panned to the other country stars, Nelson can be seen hunched over chuckling.

Then, a clip from the Goodtime Hour played from one of Jennings’ first appearances on the show. He was fresh-faced and barely recognizable. Sometimes we forget he used to be so clean-cut!

Together, they played Jennings’ song “(That’s What You Get) For Loving Me”, which became his very first Top Ten single on the Billboard charts. The song was his third single from his second ever album, Leavin’ Town.

Jennings and Campbell had perfect harmony from start to finish on this very enjoyable duet.
