Glen Campbell Sings "God Bless America"
along with guest stars from John Wayne's 1970 variety show, Swing Out, Sweet Land
(also packaged and released as John Wayne's Tribute to America), a "special program in living color".
This show was seen by approximately 30 million viewers who tuned in to see: The Duke (Wayne),
Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Johnny Cash, William Shatner, Bob Hope, Red Skelton, Bing Crosby,
the cast of "Bonanza" (Dan Blocker's role as an Indian is embarrassing to see today, I think),
Ricky Nelson, Dan Rowan and Dick Martin, Glen Campbell, Tom Smothers,
and many, many more. This program is still available on DVD through online retailers.
