An incredible musician and an even better person.

"As I had done so many times before, I begged the Lord to deliver me". I'm in NYC eating Italian food down in Little Italy and Glen is in heaven eating angel food cake.

His daughter Ashley Campbell, who joined Glen on stage here in 2011, returned to East Tennessee this year.

Completed while he was already suffering from the ravages of Alzheimer's, Campbell's final album, Adios, was released in June. "It just touched his heart". His legacy will be his great talent & how he made a decision to live with Alzheimers. I mean that as a compliment to both of my old friends. There's a whole new scale of tragedy when it comes to Alzheimer's. We have his chart topping solo work and a few of his most famous session contributions on tap.

Gorman said the Hazard FM radio station, WSGS 101.1, played Campbell's songs Wednesday morning in tribute to his friend.

It's a sad day for country music fans everywhere as it's announced that the Rhinestone Cowboy himself, Glen Campbell, has passed away at the grand age of 81.

"Glen Campbell will be greatly missed and long remembered".

It's always tragic when you hear of a friend passing, but he had to be miserable that last few years of his life.

It's a moment that musician Chris Hill will never forget.

Brad Paisley: "Thank you @GlenCampbell for the artistry, grace & class you brought to country music". In 1963 alone, he appeared on 586 cuts and countless more throughout the decade, including the Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man", Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas", Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" and the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling".

Campbell was one of the artists that I loved as a child. Rest in rhinestoned peace, @GlenCampbell. I am too upset to write very well or at any great length.

He married Kimberly "Kim" Woollen in 1982 and their three children - Cal, Shannon and Ashley - are proficient musicians who worked in his touring band.

Tim McGraw: "Songs, songs, songs... Paul McCartney knew he was a great guitar player", Webb maintained.

No one covers entertainment, food and restaurants, and things to do like the Tulsa World's Scene and Weekend. I dodged it just in time not to get brained. Sign up now at tulsaworld.com/subscribe.

Jimmy Webb (left) wrote some of Glen Campbell's most memorable pop and country hits from the 1960s onward. I owe him everything I am, and everything I ever will be. Godspeed and happy trails to you. My condolences to precious Kim and the family. "And I think all this will come to the surface as the years pass and people realize what an extraordinary genius Glen really was". "He got out and he did what he loved and that's great advice for anyone who's facing any type of illness", said Alzheimer's Association Outreach Coordinator Rob Hulstra. "We all admired you". He played a dynamic riff on the guitar that was trend setting. We'll do the remembering now Glen.
