Grave of Glen Campbell.

Glen Campbell's Grave

Singer, songwriter, musician, actor, and TV host, Glen Campbell is buried at Campbell's cemetery. When you walk to the grave, the song "Amazing Grace" starts playing -- and it is Glen Campbell singing. There is a sensor in a nearby tree that triggers when visitors are there. Very surreal and moving to hear him singing Amazing Grace at his own gravesite.
