GLEN CAMPBELL-WICHITA LINEMAN



The recent news of singer, guitarist and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame Glen Campbell's return home to Arkansas as part of his goodbye tour reminded me of his beautiful version of the Jimmy Webb penned tune Wichita Lineman. Fond memories of hearing this song along with other Campbell hits Rhinestone Cowboy, Galveston, Gentle On My Mind and By The Time I Get To Phoenix on the car radio while growing up. Wichita Lineman's emotion and heart (along with Glen's guitar twang) coupled with his owning of Webb's blue collar lyrics are more poignant today than ever. True greatness from an American icon and living legend.

Could this song play a subconscious role in our longtime appreciation of Lineman's Bags including the BELL SYSTEM Linesman's Tool Bag and Heavy Duty Riveted Canvas Tote Bag?
