Glen Campbell album sales soar 13000 percent after singer's death

Beautiful. Thank you, David. Go rest high on that mountain, Glen. I knew him and loved him so much. I mean, he made me feel that way, certainly. So I got that, at least.

He is survived by his wife, Kim Campbell; their three children; his children from previous marriages; ten grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren; two sisters and two brothers.

"Glen Campbell was one of the great entertainers and musicians of our time".

In 2011, Campbell announced that he had Alzheimer's disease. In fact, he wrote some of Campbell's biggest hits including "Wichita Lineman" and "Galveston".

GLEN Campbell was not an historic figure who changed the world. We will miss you Glen.

"We established a place in the middle of our lives where we could work", Jimmy explained, "and we could give reign to creativity and emotion, and reveal deep parts of ourselves as we worked on music". In 1999, BMI, the music rights organization, announced it was the second most-played country song of the century. "He was a proud Arkansan who had a huge impact on the music world".

The "Blue Ain't Your Color" singer closed his note with a final message for the "Rhinestone Cowboy". Singer Brian Wilson tweeted: "I'm very broken up to hear about my friend Glen Campbell". Campbell, who during his life sold more than 45 million albums, gained national and worldwide fame in the 1960s and 1970s not only for his hit songs but also for his television and movie appearances.

They added: "The family appreciates your prayers and respect for their privacy at this time". He had a great, God-given talent. There aren't many of them left. "Just thinking back, I believe suddenly that the "raison d'etre" for every Glen Campbell show was to bring every suffering soul within the sound of his voice up a peg or two".

Martina McBride: "So sad to hear the news of @GlenCampbell". He was unable to answer some of host Ellen DeGeneres' questions, but when he got up to play a song on his guitar, he was still the ideal and talented Glen Campbell everyone remembered. I remember I was somewhat surprised that the Fox was only sporadically filled.

"There simply was no one else like Glen". He was battling Alzheimer's disease.

"One of our heroes is gone". He moved us with his star presence, unforgettable songs and world class musicianship. You have to look hard for a bad song on a Glen Campbell album.

"Glen Campbell was a Champion for the Cause and a true "AlzStar" who shined a light on this disease like never before", Wade-Whitehead, continued.

After that, his solo career took off.

A day after country-pop icon Glen Campbell's death, CMT has set a tribute special to air this week. "Thankful to have known him". 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. After lessons from his Uncle Boo, Campbell's first break was playing with another uncle, Dick Bills, on a radio show in Albuquerque, where he met Elvis Presley.
