Downtown Nashville will soon be home to The Glen Campbell Museum and Rhinestone Stage, Clearbrook Hospitality, LLC – a subsidiary of Clearbrook Holdings Corp, has announced today. Guests will experience a multitude of immersive, interactive displays showcasing different stages of Glen’s life and extraordinary career as a studio musician in The Wrecking Crew (Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, The Beach Boys and others), the singer of many hit records (“Gentle On My Mind,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights”) and as a star of television and film (The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, True Grit, I’ll Be Me).
Located at the corner of Broadway and 2nd Avenue, The Glen Campbell Museum will feature more than four thousand square feet of never-before-seen artifacts from his early years on the farm in Arkansas through his climb to super-stardom, including many of Glen’s legendary guitars and instruments, his extensive collection of golf paraphernalia, and intimate family photos as well as stage worn clothing and much more.
In the evenings, the museum will transform into The Rhinestone Stage – a live music venue. The Rhinestone Stage will be “The Gem of Lower Broadway” where national and local touring acts can host intimate performances in an entirely unique environment.
The Glen Campbell Museum and Rhinestone Stage is slated to open early 2020. Details will be announced throughout the remainder of the year as construction progresses. The Grand Opening will be a star-studded event, with performances by various celebrity friends of the late Glen Campbell and the Campbell family.

We are honored to be working closely with the Campbell family to create a museum and entertainment venue that truly honors his amazing voice, musicianship, his humanity and his gift of storytelling.” – Ric Olsen, President, Clearbrook Hospitality
“I am thrilled that Glen’s musical legacy will be preserved and celebrated in such a beautiful and enduring way. The museum is sure to inspire countless musicians and music lovers while continuing to entertain his lifelong fans and share his amazing gifts with generations to come. It’s with a big heart and sincere gratitude that we share Glen’s memories and cherished personal possessions with his fans and the world.”- Kim Campbell, Wife of 34 years
