Campbell, born in Delight in southwest Arkansas, announced this summer that he would be releasing his last album and playing his last tour, due to medical reasons.
Campbell brings his “Goodbye Tour” to the East Arkansas Community College Fine Arts Center in Forrest City on Sept. 10. The show at EACC is Campbell’s only stop in Arkansas and is sold out. “We’re very excited the public has supported this concert in such a positive way,” said Dr. Coy Grace, EACC President. “We’ve sold tickets to patrons from California to Alabama and a lot of points in between. At last count, we had ticket sales from people in nine different states. This is a great thing for EACC and certainly a wonderful boost to the local economy when we have a sellout show with so many people traveling to and staying in the Forrest City area,” said Grace.
A member of the Arkansas Entertainers Hall of Fame, Campbell first gained fame as a singer and songwriter before becoming a television host and actor, including a part in the original “True Grit” with the legendary John Wayne.
