Glen Campbell’s family is sharing a few of their private photos from Glen Campbell’s private memorial service at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. You can see them now on Glen’s wife Kim’s website, CareLiving.org.
The star-studded service took place at the Hall’s CMA Theater with Brad Paisley, actress Jane Seymour, Steve Wariner and “Nashville” star Charles Esten taking part. Since it was an invitation-only service, this is the first time fans have been able to really see inside.
Three of Glen’s suits, three of his guitars and two his paintings were on display on the stage. A big screen in the center of the stage highlighted photos of moments from Glen’s career, too. There was even a condolence letter from former President Bill Clinton on display along with a photo of Bill and Glen together on the golf course.
Though it was a somber occasion, you can see big smiles on the faces of many attendees as they gathered outside the CMA Theater. There were also laughs shared during the service as speakers recalled Glen’s memorable humor.
The photos of Glen’s wife, Kim, speaking during the service are also remarkable. It’s quite a testament to her grace and strength that she was able to stand and speak during such a tough moment in her life.
