Jimmy Webb remembered his friend and collaborator Glen Campbell in a new editorial. This is a huge loss for country music.

He added the caption: "We lost one of the greatest voices, guitar players and entertainer that our world has ever seen".

Dolly Parton posted a video to Twitter.

"Thank you @GlenCampbell for the artistry, grace & class you brought to country music".

Additionally, UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS will pay tribute on its weekly program "RICK JACKSON'S COUNTRY CLASSICS", set to air the weekend of SATURDYA, AUGUST 26th and SUNDAY, AUGUST 27th.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Campbell and a host of other musicians formed what is fondly known as the Wrecking Crew.

During his 50 years in the music industry, Campbell produced 70 albums, sold 45 million records, won 12 Gold Albums, four Platinum, and one Double Platinum. Three of his children sing on the album, which was released earlier this summer.

After he was diagnosed in 2011, he went on a farewell tour, performing songs with the help of a teleprompter.

"I said 'Glen, why don't you get that thing covered up?' He said 'I'm going to keep that all the time, it will remind me of you.' So that little dagger, now his daughter went and had one put on here", said Edge. By the time of his final show in Napa, California, he was barely able to lead his band.

He began a late-career renaissance in 2008 through his collaboration with producer and songwriter Julian Raymond, who persuaded Campbell to record a diverse batch of songs by younger, hipper artists, including Green Day, Tom Petty, the Replacements and U2. He immediately took to the cheap guitar his father bought him and played in his uncle's band.

Even though Campbell was a well-known figure, Hill will never forget how kind he was.

"He was a wonderful session musician as well - a lot of people don't know realise that but he could play anything and he could play it really well - so he was just extremely talented".

He toured with The Beach Boys in 1964 after singer Brian Wilson temporarily retired from the band. He also earned a Best Song Oscar nomination for "I'm Not Gonna Miss You", from the 2014 documentary Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me. The star has also played in several movies, including True Grit, in which he gave the reply to John Wayne.
