The 72-year-old Campbell isn't worried that his longtime fans will be turned off by the different kinds of modern-day songs he's singing. Explaining that he simply looked for "songs with good lyrics" for this album, he is convinced of its universal appeal.
"If they're my fan they should be Green Day's fan, because they had some great stuff," Campbell told Spinner after his AOL Music Sessions performance.
Campbell, backed by a band that included four of his eight children, treated us to some of his new "great stuff" live in our studio. He performed seven songs, including a haunting cover of U2's 'All I Want is You,' a steel-guitar driven version of Travis' 'Sing' and an energetic rendition of Tom Petty's 'Angel Dream.' The living legend also indulged us with some signature 'cowboy' favorites of his own.
