'Adiós' sees Glen Campbell putting his spin on several classic songs including "Don't Think Twice It's All Right," inspired by Jerry Reed's version of Bob Dylan's timeless tune and "Everybody's Talkin', a banjo-filled take on the song that Campbell never recorded but famously performed on the "Sonny & Cher Show" in 1973 with a 19-year-old Carl Jackson. Campbell's daughter Ashley plays banjo on the song and joins her dad on several tracks on the album.

Other songwriters featured include Roger Miller with "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)," which begins with a home recording of Miller singing the tune at a guitar pull before going into Campbell's rendition with Vince Gill on harmonies, Dickey Lee's honky tonk heartbreaker "She Thinks I Still Care," and Jerry Reed's Johnny Cash hit "A Thing Called Love." Willie Nelson joins his old pal for a poignant duet of Nelson's 1968 "Funny How Time Slips Away" while Jackson tells Campbell's life story in "Arkansas Farmboy."

"I wrote 'Arkansas Farmboy' sometime in the mid-to late-'70s on a plane bound for one of the many overseas destinations I played with Glen between 1972 and 1984," reveals Jackson. "The song was inspired by a story that Glen told me about his grandpa teaching him 'In The Pines' on a $5 Sears & Roebuck guitar when he was only a boy. That guitar led to worldwide fame and fortune, far beyond what even some in his family could comprehend."
