No. 22: Glen Campbell, ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ – Top 100 Country Songs
The word “hit” isn’t big enough to describe song No. 22 on the Top 100 Country Songs list. ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ was a country and pop chart-topper in the U.S. and a huge international sensation in 1975. Glen Campbell was already a star by then, but he found a new audience with this song.
A decade later, the song would inspire a forgettable Sylvester Stallone movie, but we don’t hold that against Campbell. ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ is his signature song, the one he brought the house down with during the 2012 ACM Awards.
