Delight is a city in Pike County, Arkansas, United States. The population was 311 at the 2000 census. It is the birthplace of country musician Glen Campbell, though the actual early home of the Country Music Hall of Fame inductee was in nearby Billstown, which Campbell describes as a "suburb" of Delight (and too small for most maps). Delight is also the home of former Arkansas State Auditor and Treasurer Gus Wingfield (1995–2007).
