It wasn't like we didn't know today would never come, but it stung nonetheless. Losing an icon like Glen Campbell hit the country music world hard today. All of us here at QYK are big fans. "Rhinestone Cowboy" was my first favorite song. I played the 45 so many times as a kid, I'm shocked my mother didn't try to hide it from me.
The news of Glen Campbell's passing had a big impact on the artists we play too.

... and clearly Glen's impact was felt beyond the country music world.
