Country legend Glen Campbell was today honoured as a Q Legend at the 2008 Q Awards with Russian Standard Vodka.
The one-time Beach Boy who created a string of unforgettable songs has recently undergone a Johnny Cash-style reinvention, covering contemporary material by acts such as Green Day.
Campbell is best known for his enduring singles Rhinestone Cowboy and the heart-tugging Wichita Lineman.
The singer said: "Roger miller had the same thing. Roger said he was a legend in his own mind – rather than in his spare time. What can I say except that it’s great to see people with taste. God bless you and keep playing."
The 2007 winner of the Q Legend award was Ian Brown
