About Glen Travis Campbell

American country pop singer, guitarist, television host and occasional actor Glen Travis Campbell has an estimated net worth of $50 million.

Campbell was one of the leading figures of country-pop during that era, racking up a steady stream of Top Ten singles highlighted by classics like "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," "I Wanna Live," "Wichita Lineman," "Galveston," "Rhinestone Cowboy," and "Southern Nights."

Boasting Campbell's smooth vocals and layered arrangements where steel guitars bounced off sweeping strings, those songs not only became country hits and crossed over to the pop charts as well, which was appropriate since that is where he began his musical career.

Originally, he was a Los Angeles session musician, playing the hits by the Monkees, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Merle Haggard. By the end of the '60s, he had become a successful solo artist, and that success would not abate until the late '80s when he stopped having radio hits and began concentrating on live performances at his theater in Branson.

Campbell was born and raised in Delight, Arizona where he received his first guitar at the age of four. Learning the instrument from various relatives, he played consistently throughout his childhood, and eventually gravitating toward jazz players like Barney Kessel and Django Reinhardt.

While he was learning guitar, he also sang in a local church, where he developed his vocal skills. By the time he was 14, he had begun performing with a number of country bands in the Arkansas, Texas, and New Mexico area, including his uncle's group, the Dick Bills Band. When he was 18, he formed his own country band, the Western Wranglers, and began touring the South with the group.
