On this day in Country Music History! #WQBENightShow
March 17th 1969, Glen Campbell was at #1 on the US country album chart with his 12th album Wichita Lineman, which went on to spend a total of 46 weeks on the chart. The Jimmy Webb penned title track came while driving through Washita County in rural southwestern Oklahoma. Heading westward on a straight road into the setting sun, Webb drove past a seemingly endless line of telephone poles, each looking exactly the same as the last. Then, in the distance, he noticed the silhouette of a solitary lineman atop a pole.
