He was born Glen Travis Campbell on April 22, 1936, at Delight, Arkansas to a musical family and was given his first guitar at the age of four.
Campbell's family says he died Tuesday morning in Nashville. His album, By The Time I Get To Phoenix, was named Album of the Year at the 1968 Grammy Awards.
He was also a victor for Grammy Awards for four times in the different pop categories.
Last year, Campbell's wife founded Care Living, a website dedicated to educating people about Alzheimer's disease and offering support to caregivers. No cause of death was given, but the singer announced in 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
There, he performed as a session musician with Phil Spector's legendary backing band, The Wrecking Crew, helping to produce what was called the Wall of Sound. Many remember his television show, the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, which aired between 1969 and 1972. He played on several recordings including tracks for Ricky Nelson, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, The Monkees, Frank Sinatra, and Merle Haggard.
Naming horses can be a hard process, but Campbell's famous words helped owners, particularly Coolmore's John Magnier, find fitting names for some of their stars.

Many stars have paid tribute on the social networks.
Campbell was twice nominated for an Oscar, for "True Grit" and again 45 years later for "I'm Not Gonna Miss You", an original song from the documentary "Glen Campbell".
