Country crooner Glen Campbell has finally got something to smile about after serving time for drink driving earlier this year (04) - he was honoured in Los Angeles on Friday night (01OCT04).

The WICHITA LINEMAN singer was handed the WESTERN HERITAGE AWARD for promoting the cowboy lifestyle. The honour is handed out annually by Los Angeles' AUTRY MUSEUM.

A grateful Campbell said, "I'm in some pretty heavy company. GENE AUTRY was my hero. Dad would take us to see his movies. Gene Autry was just awesome. He was always the good guy who didn't lie, steal or cheat. He was so considerate of other people.

"I was glad to find out that Gene Autry was just like that off the screen."

Past recipients of the honour have included Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Clint Eastwood.
