Glen Campbell Dead at 81

Country music icon Glen Campbell has died, a rep from Universal Music Group confirms to Rolling Stone. He was 81 years old.

The “Rhinstone Cowboy” singer reportedly passed away on Tuesday morning in Nashville, Tenn. after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

He was diagnosed with disease in early 2011. Later that year, he embarked on a farewell tour to say one final goodbye to his fans across the world.

In June of this year, the Country Music Hall of Famer released a final collection of songs, entitled ‘Adiós’.

Throughout his career, Campbell earned 21 Top 40 hits and sold more than 45 million records.

He is survived by his wife, Kim, and eight children, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane, Dillon, Cal, Shannon, and Ashley.
