TKO Artist Management Owner/President TK Kimbrell has signed the legendary Glen Campbell to his artist roster.

Kimbrell takes the reigns from Campbell’s longtime manager and business manager of over 50 years, Stan Schneider, to become the steward of Campbell’s legacy. Schneider will continue as Campbell’s business manager.

“[Glen Campbell] is one of the greatest talents to ever walk the face of the earth,” Kimbrell says. “I’ve helped on a few projects over the years… Stan is Glen’s age and he asked a while back if I would consider taking over and the family blessed that. My goal is to make sure Glen’s musical legacy lives on forever and is passed down for generations to come.”

Campbell’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease has only escalated since the entertainer’s farewell tour and corresponding 2014 documentary I’ll Be Me. Documentary director James Keach (Walk The Line), is currently working on a biopic for Campbell.

“There’s a ton of unreleased music and the more you get into it the more you find,” Kimbrell continues. “There were years Glen played guitar or sang on 500-600 records per year. There are unreleased recordings of him with [famed LA studio musicians] The Wrecking Crew — lots of them.”

As for Campbell’s current health, Kimbrell reported: “He seems really happy. It’s hard for him to put words together. Physically, he looks healthy — like the Glen Campbell we all know. He smiles a lot, and loves seeing his wife Kim and the family. They are always there caring for him.”

Kimbrell is the longtime manager for Toby Keith. Additionally he manages the late Chris LeDoux and Campbell’s son and daughter, Shannon Campbell and Dot recording artist Ashley Campbell, among other artists.
