Glen Campbell, best known for hits including ‘Wichita Lineman’, ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ and ‘Southern Nights’, has passed away after a battle with Alzheimer’s.
TMZ is reporting that Campbell died around 10 a.m. today at a Nashville facility for Alzheimer’s patients.
Glen was the complete entertainment package, with a successful 50 year (4 Grammy awards) Country and Pop career that includes 70 albums, plus acting (True Grit with John Wayne), and a very successful CBS TV variety show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour (1969-1972).
Campbell, husband, father and grandfather, is survived by his wife, children and grandchildren.
Now, the Rhinestone Cowboy can truly ride off into the sunset.
