The country music world has lost an icon today.
81 year old Glen Campbell passed away—-following a battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.
His career spanned 60 years—he sold more than 45-million records—and in 1968—-actually sold more records than the Beatles.
He had 21 top40 hits—-including “Rhinestone Cowboy”—-“By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Wichita Lineman.”
He had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when he was 75—and had decided to retire from music in 2011 because of it.
His final album was called “Ghost on the Canvas.”
