Glen Campbell will be getting his very own museum and stage in Nashville next year. Campbell’s wife Kim announced the news, adding how how hard it’s been coping with his loss two years after his passing. “It’s such a long, long goodbye that you’re conditioned already to accept it. But you carry around the sadness with you for so many years. The sadness lingers.”
The new 4,000-square-foot museum will be located on the corner of Broadway and 2nd Avenue, and it will transform into a live music venue during the evenings. Inside the museum, guests will find personal artifacts from the Campbell family including instruments, never-before-seen photos, stage clothes and more. Campbell’s museum follows other Nashville-based museums recognizing historic artists including George Jones, Patsy Cline and Johhny Cash.
Campbell was a world-renowned artist, songwriter, guitarist, actor and television personality. Campbell hosted The Glen Campbell Good Time Hour variety show from 1969-1972 and acted in the 1969 film True Grit alongside John Wayne.
