The country music industry is reacting with grief to the August 8 passing of icon Glen Campbell at age 81 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. His impact on the music world has been massive since he scored his first hits in the late ’60s. We’ll never forget his masterful guitar work and smooth vocals on “Gentle on My Mind,” “Galveston” and “Southern Nights,” among many other hits.

Campbell went on to conquer TV with his CBS show, “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” and appear on the big screen in the 1969 classic, “True Grit.”
