Thirty-three years ago today (Aug. 17, 1985) was a significant day for the country music supergroup #thehighwaymen , made up of #waylonjennings , #willienelson , #kriskristofferson and #johnnycash . It was on that date that their debut single, "Highwayman," soared to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. "Highwayman," written by #jimmywebb , was previously recorded by both Webb and #glencampbell , before the quartet -- who named themselves after the hit single -- made it the title track of their freshman album. Each member of the group sang a verse. #martystuart deserves at least some of the credit for the group recording "Highwayman": Jennings, Nelson, Kristofferson and Cash were together in Switzerland, for a TV taping, when Stuart reminded Cash of the tune. Stuart later played guitar on the recording. "Highwayman" became the Highwaymen's only No. 1 song; their follow-up single, "Desperados Waiting for a Train," peaked at No. 15. Less than one year after the song landed at the top of the charts, the album of the same name was certified gold, for sales of 500,000 copies. Webb also earned a Grammy Awards trophy, for Best Country Song, for "Highwayman." #highwayman #countrymusicmemories

Happy Birthday to the incomparable Jimmy Webb. β € "I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can.β € Perhaps I may become a highwayman again.β € Or I may simply be a single drop of rain.β € But I will remain.β € And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..." #Highwayman #RhinestoneCowboy #JimmyWebb #GlenCampbell
What are the odds?! Happy birthday to Jimmy Webb. To celebrate I’ll be playing your songs on the Georgia Theatre rooftop in Athens, Georgia tonight at 8. It must’ve been meant to be as I had no idea that it was your birthday til Kevin Lane (who is singing a song with me) told me this morning! Here’s to a good one, sir, and to many more. #jimmywebb #summersongs #georgiatheatrerooftop

Many of you have asked, yes this show was recorded πŸ”₯😍πŸ”₯#Repost @davidcampbell73 ・・・ What an incredible show last night in Melbourne. It was a humbling experience for all of us to perform the songs of Jimmy Webb with the genius himself and an orchestra. None of us left the side of stage. Like we were transfixed. We were the performers and the audience. We were the choir in his church. And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time... #wichitalineman #glencampbell @jimmybarnesofficial @ianmossmusic @edkuepper #jimmywebb #macarthurpark @vanessa_maestra #thecakeandtherain

Spring was never waiting for us, girl It ran one step ahead As we followed in the dance Between the parted pages and were pressed In love's hot, fevered iron Like a striped pair of pants MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down Someone left the cake out in the rain I don't think that I can take it 'Cause it took so long to bake it And I'll never have that recipe again Oh no! #mcarthurpark #richardharris #jimmywebb #london #summer2018 🌞
Glen Campbell was my first musical influence, starting with his "Good Time Hour" TV show, and then his hit song "Wichita Lineman". I was hooked. When I was in the group One Flew South, our producer Marcus Hummon turned me on to the Jimmy Webb version of the song, and it grabbed me all over again; Jimmy is the song's writer, and his version is gorgeous, haunting, and quietly powerful. I worked up an arrangement of the tune, and producer Dave Matthews suggested we record it for my 19th studio release. It's a simple approach, acoustic guitar and vocal...Wichita Lineman is a song that doesn't need extra fanfare in my humble opinion, it's one of the most beautiful songs of all time! #WichitaLineman #glencampbell #JimmyWebb #itunes #anotheralbumcomingsoon #single #songwriter #musicteacher
