Glen passed away earlier this week at the age of 81 following a "long and courageous" battle with the disease.
"One of the greatest musicians, singers, entertainers, and handsome human beings has left this life for the next life where no disease is allowed to enter, thank God!" Go rest high on that mountain, Glen. "He will be remembered so well and with so much love". "Condolences to Campbell family".
"I really like the situation I'm in because if I make a mistake now, they expect it", he joked. So I got that, at least.
"Glen Campbell was one of the great entertainers and musicians of our time".
Glen Travis Campbell was born on April 22, 1936, into a poor sharecropping family of Scottish roots, near Delight, Arkansas.
The Band Perry covered "Gentle on My Mind" for the soundtrack to the documentary "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me". "But if he flubs a lyric or gets confused onstage, I wouldn't want people to think, 'What's the matter with him?" His music never needed to. In fact, I was probably five when I learned and memorized all of the words to "Rhinestone Cowboy". He was one of God's prices gifts to us all.
Campbell's more than 70 albums sold more than 50 million copies, earning him six Grammy Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award, and membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Musicians Hall of Fame. "He will be missed". He had a great, God-given talent. He could do it all. He would meet and marry his longtime and last wife, Kim Woollen, a short time later, but Ms. Tucker in a 2014 interview called him her "one true love".
Sheryl Crow: "Huge loss in the world of music today". "And maybe he was the bravest man I've ever known". He had a look of amazement on his face and said, 'Really?Wow.' He was genuinely surprised. Most people would be crushed and try to figure out what they're going to do, but he just said, 'I'm not done.
"There simply was no one else like Glen. Sending heartfelt prayers and condolences from the entire Restless Heart family".
"This I can promise: While I can play a piano, he will never be forgotten", Webb concludes. You brought us a lot of joy.
"Saddened about Glen Campbell. Missing the Rhinestone Cowboy already!"
Campbell's death was met with an outpouring of grief from stars of the country music world and others. His version of the song about a struggling musician, written and first recorded by the relatively unknown Larry Weiss, was No 1 on the country, pop and adult contemporary charts in 1975. Many remember his television show, the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, which aired between 1969 and 1972.
Campbell's all-round appeal lay in the way he effortlessly bridged the worlds of country music and pop, The Times says, adding the star would say he was "not a country singer, but a country boy who sings".
