A Glen Campbell bio-pic is in the works…
Sugarland’s album is here and the video for Babe is coming…


A bio-pic on Glen Campbell is in the planning stages.
Glen’s widow Kim Campbell said that James Keach, who directed the acclaimed documentary I'll Be Me, is "working on it."
Kim wasn't ready to suggest someone to play her husband, who died last August. But she noted, "Glen's gonna be tough to cast." Any prospective actor, she said, has "got some tough shoes to fill."

And Sugarland’s new album ‘Bigger’ is available as off today- their first since 2010’s ‘Incredible Machine.’ The video for their latest single “Babe” is set to premiere tomorrow. They teased it earlier this week showing off a Mad Men vibe with Taylor Swift shorting a red hairdo.
Sugarland kicked off their Still the Same tour last month- their first in 6 years and they will stop at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown on July 13th!
