Watch John Mayer Cover Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind" in Nashville

Watch John Mayer Cover Glen Campbell's

Glen is one of the greatest voices that ever was in the business and he was one of the greatest musicians.

"You could go bear hunting with a switch", Campbell quipped. My condolences to precious Kim and the family. "I mean, he ran out of there". "Sending love and prayers to his family".

"Glen was a good friend with a great sense of humor".

In 2011, the singer announced he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease before he went on a 15-stop farewell tour.

Kimberly echoed his sentiment with a simple tweet reading, "RIP Glen Campbell. Rest In Peace, Glen Campbell".

Campbell had his first major hit in 1967, with "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." . In fact, Glen played on nearly all First Edition music. He was a flawed man who had battled chemical dependency, martial infidelity and other issues that made him more human than a saint. This is a huge loss for country music. One of the American greats, the country singer passed away yesterday (August 8) at the age 81, leaving a gaping hole in the modern musical landscape. Country star Dolly Parton issued a video statement via Twitter, saying "Well, Glen Campbell was special because he was so gifted".

"And that is magnified by the greatness of his talent". He could do it all.

"Saddened about Glen Campbell".

Martina McBride: "So sad to hear the news of @GlenCampbell".

As a recording artiste, Glen continued to have more success in the country than on the pop charts. He was a very nice and down to earth guy. "You'll be missed by so many".

"There simply was no one else like Glen".

I remember watching Campbell in concert on the Silver Springs stage 10 years ago.

"One of our heroes is gone". She also shared her story about life with Glen and life as a caregiver during a visit to Knoxville in September 2016. He moved us with his star presence, unforgettable songs and world class musicianship. "We all admired you". We'll do the remembering now Glen. "Missing the Rhinestone Cowboy already!"

Campbell has left a major impact on South Dakota musicians like Hill that will continue to play on. "Thankful to have known him".

Both "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman", my favorite of the two, were written by the talented songwriter Jimmy Webb, who also wrote "MacArthur Park", another great song in my opinion.

The Glen Campbell "Goodtime Hour", which began airing on CBS-TV in 1969, shot him to superstardom across the States.

Campbell died in Nashville at an Alzheimer's facility surrounded by his family, his publicist Sanford Brokaw said.

"The world lost a little sparkle today". He meant so much to so many people and, robin, I know you were a country music deejay.
