Earlier this month, Campbell was honored at the 51st Country Music Association Awards with a riveting musical tribute and the posthumous award for Musical Event of the Year for “Funny How Time Slips Away,” his poignant duet with Willie Nelson, from Adiós. As the stage went dark, Campbell’s lifelong musical collaborator Jimmy Webb and country superstars Little Big Town performed an emotional version of “Wichita Lineman,” one of Campbell’s signature songs written by Webb.
Adiós capped off an extraordinary career for Campbell that spanned more than six decades and 50 million albums sold. Hailed as one of the best of his career, the album received an incredible reaction around the world from the likes of Rolling Stone, USA Today, NPR, Uncut and many others. It debuted in the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 garnering Campbell his 16th Top 40 album and his 19th Top 10 Country Record.
