We are blessed to have known him and the world is blessed to have his musical legacy that will forever be part of America's best music.

Country singer Glen Campbell died on Tuesday following a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

James Keach, who directed a documentary that chronicled that long farewell four, recalled that Campbell's family had become his carers at that point, while his band backed him when he forgot the music, and fans filled in the words when he dropped some lyrics.

The devastating impact of the ailment was revealed, among other details, in the 2014 documentary, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.

The three-hour episode will be titled "REMEMBERING GLEN CAMPBELL", comprised of CAMPBELL's music, greatest hits, and his incredible story.

According to WIVB , Newsome has been arrested and charged with concealing the body of her daughter, Kaye-lea Plummer. She shared that the child's father lived in Buffalo, New York and that's where she was driving toward.

Rolling Stone also quoted some comments that Jimmy Webb made earlier this year, as he was, even then, paying tribute to Glen Campbell's many accomplishments, and comparing his impact on American music to the Beatles' impact on British music. Campbell used the song as the theme to his television variety show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour between 1969 and 1972.

He won another two Grammy Awards in 1968 for the best album By The Time I Get To Phoenix and best record Wichita Lineman. "He was a secret weapon in the armory of Sixties record producers".

But when Campbell had had enough trouble on the set, he told me he jokingly threatened Wayne: "I said, 'I've never done this before". The legendary musician released the final album of his career, Adios, in June.

And in the later years of his career, his public battle with Alzheimer's disease is what fans remember. He could still hit the notes.

Like the Goodbye Tour, the song is unique in the country canon.

"Glen is survived by his wife, Kim Campbell of Nashville, TN; their three children, Cal, Shannon and Ashley; his children from previous marriages, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane, and Dillon; ten grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren; sisters Barbara, Sandra, and Jane; and brothers John Wallace "Shorty" and Gerald".
