THE music of American country legend Glen Campbell provides the soundtrack to Darren Coggan’s earliest musical memories.
“His music has been a huge part of my life,” Coggan said.
Some 40 years later Coggan is still singing Rhinestone Cowboy.
Coggan will bring his Like A Rhinestone Cowboy - The Best Of Glen Campbell show to the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January before taking it across Australia.
What separates Coggan’s performance from your typical tribute show is the personal stories. In 1997 a fresh-faced Coggan was invited to support Campbell on his national Australian tour.
Coggan’s own personal insights into Campbell’s career and life are woven into the concert, alongside iconic hits like Gentle On My Mind, Wichita Lineman, By The Time I Get To Phoenix and Try A Little Kindness.
