Remembering Glenn Campbell – gone at 81
He’s known for songs like “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Wichita Lineman” and he’s left behind an incredible body of work. Glen Campbell passed away this week at 81 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, as confirmed by his label, Universal Music Group. Tributes are pouring in from those influenced by the late singer and guitarist:
“…The night I won my first country music award, I got back to my hotel room and there was a fax on the floor.”Welcome to the award winning world kid. You got it.” Glen Campbell. Universal music, universal stories, universal spirit. No wonder he was a global superstar. I love Glen for so many reasons – but above all, for his humanity. My thoughts and prayers are with Kim and all of his extended family today. May peace be with you all. Go rest high on that mountain, Glen. -Keith Urban
