The world has lost a “Rhinestone Cowboy”: legendary country music singer Glen Campbell has passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. He was 81 years old.
Campbell died around 10 AM in Nashville at an Alzheimer’s facility, a source close to the family told TMZ.
Over his illustrious career, Campbell released 70 albums and had plenty of country hits including “Gentle on my Mind” and “Wichita Lineman.” He hosted the variety show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour” on CBS for four years.
He’s survived by his wife, Kim Campbell, as well as eight children.
The world lost an icon. Rest in peace, Glen.
