Remember When Keith Urban Jammed With Glen Campbell?

'Wichita Lineman' Campbell nears the end of the line Glen Campbell's daughter mourns her late father: 'I owe him everything'

Watch the trailer for Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me below; it's now streaming on Netflix.

Peaking at number one in Canada, the United States and Ireland, Rhinestone Cowboy is Campbell's best-known song.

With songs like "Rhinestone Cowboy", "Gentle on My Mind", "Wichita Lineman", and "Galveston", the musician released more than 70 albums over a 50-year career. He had originally recorded with the group the year before, but when band leader Brian Wilson suffered a nervous breakdown in December 1964, Campbell was hired to take his place on tour, playing bass and singing harmonies.

He was also a victor for Grammy Awards for four times in the different pop categories.

Campbell's best-selling single, Rhinestone Cowboy, was released in 1975 and has sold more than five million copies. He and his fourth wife Kim Woolen made his Alzheimer's diagnosis public in 2011.

Campbell started his career as a Wrecking Crew member, those highly-gifted session musicians that worked with the likes of the Beach Boys (Campbell played on Pet Sounds), Elvis Presley, Nancy Sinatra, and Merle Haggard. Glen Campbell, one of the most famous singers of the genre, died on Tuesday at the age of 81 in Nashville. Campbell used the song as the theme to his television variety show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour between 1969 and 1972. He recorded songs for everyone from the Byrds to Elvis Presley to Frank Sinatra, but with the Beach Boys, Campbell almost had a full-time gig.

The jet had to maneuver to avoid collision with the QOM-1, coming just 200 feet laterally and 100 feet vertically of each other. But this appears to be the first time an Iranian drone has come dangerously close to a United States fighter plane in the Gulf.

JIMMY WEBB: "Wichita Lineman", to me, is a quintessential Glen Campbell record. Let people listen to that one for a long, long, long time because he sang like an angel.

In 2005, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Tributes to the star poured in yesterday, but it's still hard to estimate the sheer scale of his impact on music - his sweet, soothing tenor voice perfectly represented the meeting point of country and pop.

"The night I won my first country music award, I got back to my hotel room and there was a fax on the floor", he recalls.

They also asked for fans to swap flowers for donations to a Glen Campbell Memorial Fund through the BrightFocus Foundation and added: "The family appreciates your prayers and respect for their privacy at this time". "I miss you already", commented soberly Miley Cyrus.
