Jimmy Webb says
Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb were an unexpected pairing: a multi-platinum recording artist arch conservative and a child prodigy long-hair stoner songwriter. Yet, Campbell and Webb became one of the most successful musical collaborations of all time. In this show, America’s songwriter, Webb, shares the music and personal stories of a friendship that provided the soundtrack for generations.

The critical acclaim singer/songwriter/composer/producer Webb has received during his successful, 40-plus years in the music business is as remarkable as his accomplishments. He has written numerous platinum-selling classics, including ‘Up, Up and Away‘, ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix‘, ‘Wichita Lineman‘, ‘Galveston‘, and ‘MacArthur Park‘. His songs have been performed by superstars like Campbell, The 5th Dimension, Elvis Presley, and Barbara Streisand.

Jimmy, who hails from Oklahoma, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1986 and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1990. Awards he has received over the years include the National Academy of Songwriters Lifetime Achievement Award, the Songwriters Hall of Fame Johnny Mercer Award, the ASCAP Voice of Music Award, and the Ivor Novello Special International Award. He was unanimously elected chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2011. Jimmy’s song ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix‘ was the third most performed song between the years 1940 and 1990, according to music rights management organization BMI, and he is the only artist ever to have received GRAMMY Awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration.
