We have a running joke in our family that Glen Campbell might be our grandpa.
Here’s the back story…
My grandma was a professional country singer. She spent time at the Grand Ole Opry, and met some of the greatest singers our country has ever seen. She tells stories of meeting people like Johnny Cash, Tex Ritter, and more.
One of my favorite stories is of her time having met Glen Campbell. She often says he was the love of her life. We joke that he might be our grandpa, to the extent that my brother made the following photo.
It’s obviously a joke, but we often refer to him as “Grandpa Glen.” My grandma’s response is always the same: “The opportunity was there, but I never acted on it.”
What a fantastic opportunity, though, to have met someone you view as an idol and inspiration.
