Jimmy Webb: Only Artist To Receive Grammy Awards For Music, Lyrics And Orchestration

When Jimmy Webb did “CBS Sunday Morning” last week, “It seems,” they said, “like everyone has sung the songs of Jimmy Webb.”

Wikipedia notes his songs have been recorded or performed by Glen Campbell, The 5th Dimension, Thelma Houston, The Supremes, Richard Harris, Johnny Maestro, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Isaac Hayes, R.E.M., and Chet Atkins. He’s also the only artist to ever receive Grammy Awards for music, lyrics and orchestration.

Our favorite Jimmy Webb tidbit? His song MacArthur Park was first recorded by the great actor Richard Harris, who went on to play Dumbledore in the first two Harry Potter movies.

Jimmy Webb will be here on November 13 with NY1’s Budd Mishkin. Tickets are available here.

Do you have questions for Jimmy Webb? Let us know in the comments below. We’ll submit your questions during the Q&A portion of the event and if it is used on stage, we will provide you with two tickets to an upcoming event, pending availability. So get questioning!

The New York Times reviewed his show this past Wednesday at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency and writes: “A riveting storyteller in the cowboy campfire tradition, he is someone you could listen to for hours.”
