COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND GLEN CAMPBELL LOSES BATTLE WITH ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

Written by Matt Davis on August 9, 2017. Posted in News/Weather

Country music legend Glen Campbell passed away at the age of 81 on Tuesday after a six-year battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Campbell was well-known for his Top 40 hits such as “Rhinestone Cowboy”, “Wichita Lineman”, “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Southern Nights” during a career that spanned six decades.

“Adios”, Campbell’s final album, was released back in June.  Tracks were recorded shortly after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis and upon the conclusion of his 2011-2012 Farewell Tour.  The album features accompaniment from Carl Jackson, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill and Campbell’s daughter Ashley.

In an interview on WLAQ AM 1410’s “Good Morning Rome” that originally aired in mid-June, Campbell’s wife Kim said that the making of “Adios” was indeed an emotional experience.

In addition to his legacy as a singer and songwriter, Campbell was also well-known as a television host and actor.
