The 'Rhinestone Cowboy' lost the battle with Alzheimer's earlier today. He was 81. Also known for Wichita Lineman, Galveston and Gentle on My Mind. Nashville mourns one of country's greatest singers! Cry

Huge loss...Thank You and RIP Mr. Campbell.
'Wichita Lineman' has long held a special place in my heart from my days on the road that would separate myself from my better half for elongated periods of time. Hearing that song at dusk was always a very hard thing to do, but I never would turn it off.
 
 
...damn, how time passes...

Gentle on My Mind is my favorite.  I kind of rediscovered it for myself about 10 years ago while putting together a summer-themed CD.  That guitar at the beginning is beautiful (though I often confuse it with the intro to Everybody's Talkin').
 
I watched a doc of his "Goodbye" tour not too long ago.  Sad.  
 
RIP, Glen.

I'm so sad to hear this.  RIP Glen.  I enjoyed his music; Wichita Lineman is one of my favorites.  Many fond memories of listening and watching his music and TV shows.

Plus he was crossover.  I remember Glen Campbell being played on regular AM music stations along with the other popular tunes of the time.  I am so sad.  Cry

I was around 10 years old when that song came out and it has always been one of my favorites.

It was written by his long time friend and collaborator Jimmy Webb who also wrote hit songs like "Up, Up and Away", "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", "Galveston", "The Worst That Could Happen" and "MacArthur Park".

Huge loss to the music world.

Dollywood has a garden which has plaques memorializing deceased country-western singers. I'm sure they've drawn up plans to memorialize Glen Campbell. I don't know if it will erected when I visit this park in two weeks.

RIP Glen.

RIP Mr. Campbell

This is really weird - I listen to some oldies station and last week they played "Every Day Housewife" and it made me pause and wonder if Glen Campbell had died. He;s been sick for so long. Very sad to hear this.

Plus, he was in True Grit and I fell in love with him!

Glen Campbell had a great partnership with Jimmy Webb (who wrote many of his classic hits)

Not many of the country icons left these days. Willie Nelson is still going, Kris Kristofferson...but fewer and fewer.

He worked with a lotta big names before he had a big name of his own---The Beach Boys, Dean Martin, Elvis and many others.  He was with the Wrecking Crew.

Willie Nelson is old as feck. 84 years old! And he is a weedhead(Take that to some anti marijuana propaganda that daid that smoking weed drastically lowers your life expectancy)
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

The Wichita Lineman has always been my favourite song by Mr. Campbell. The orchestration along with his heavenly voice is pure magic. 
Where I grew up (in the UK), the images created in this song allowed me to imagine to loneliness of that job in the far away midwest section of the U.S......Thank you Mr. Cambell!
Rest In Peace! You will be missed forever!
