Keith Urban Pens Touching Tribute to Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell passed away Tuesday at age 81 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. "Arrangers just loved that he could play off-the-wall solos, just the wildest sounds you ever heard". His song "I'm Not Going to Miss You" from the movie's soundtrack won a Grammy Award for best country song.

After his diagnosis, Glen Campbell's family said he felt an urgency to get in the studio one final time.

One of Kissel's favourite Glen Campbell songs is "Galveston" and he remembers listening to "Rhinestone Cowboy" on a greatest country songs of all-time record his grandfather bought for him.

"RIP my dear old friend Glen Campbell. I shall be forever grateful for everything he did for me", said singer Anne Murray.

There was also Campbell's dedication to his family, friends, and fans, and his desire to entertain the people who watched their shows and leave them "feeling just a little tad better about themselves".

Glen Campbell was a rare entertainer who got to say goodbye to his life and career in every way he knew how.

Charlize Theron told Andy Cohen on " Watch What Happens Live! " that Lindsay "is smart, she is sexy, she is handsome ". The chemistry is clearly still there, as the couple heads to the fantasy suite to get to know each other even better.

Given his success working with high-profile artists and his skill as a musician, the Hollywood-based Capitol Records signed Campbell in 1962, and Campbell released a few moderately successful singles of his own.

Alan Jackson: "I owe @GlenCampbell my gratitude-he was my first contact in Nashville". In 1969, Campbell starred alongside the Duke himself in True Grit and sang the title song for the film. He had originally recorded with the group the year before, but when band leader Brian Wilson suffered a nervous breakdown in December 1964, Campbell was hired to take his place on tour, playing bass and singing harmonies. A wonderful musician and a person more incredible.

Campbell was diagnosed in 2011, and with his family by his side, he raised awareness about Alzheimer's disease, sharing this very personal side with fans. Part of the reason was to see some old architecture with which I was starting to become enamored, but it was also a chance to hear some lovely old music by Mr. Campbell.

Glen Campbell scored one his biggest hits with an unlikely cover of Allen Toussaint's "Southern Nights".

At the time, I didn't know that he was likely in the early stages of Alzheimer's.

Anyway, Cooper alleges in the interview that Campbell was one of the greatest guitar players of all time; so good in fact, well-renowned rock and roll guitarists sought lessons from Campbell - even while battling Alzheimer's, Campbell could always remember how to play the guitar.
