No. 46: Glen Campbell, ‘Gentle on My Mind’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs


With its rolling rhythm and Glen Campbell‘s iconic country vocals, ‘Gentle on My Mind’ is the epitome of a feel-good country love song. The Grammy Award-winning hit was written by John Hartford in 1968, and was a cover song for Campbell. Both Hartford and the legendary country star won Grammy Awards for the folksy country tune.

Not only did this addition to the Top 100 Country Love Songs list win two Grammys in one year, but it spurred a major career break-through for Campbell. Before hearing the song on the radio and deciding to arrange a country version, the now-legend had little success establishing a name for himself in country music. When he recorded ‘Gentle on My Mind,’ it became a mega-hit, putting him on the map as a popular country artist.
