    Legendary country artist Glen Campbell has died, according to the singer's official website. He was 81 years old.

    Campbell was the pride of Delight, AR, but he saw his future in Hollywood. He took his guitar to California and made musical history.

    Campbell had six No. 1 hits, including Rhinestone Cowboy, which sold over 2 million copies. He also won five Grammys and seven ACM Awards. Campbell was a proud member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Campbell was a critical success and a popular superstar. Before the world knew he could sing, they found out he could play a guitar better than just about anybody.

    The earliest memory of music I have is playing a Rhinestone Cowboy 45rpm on my portable record player. I played it over and over and over again until my Mom wanted to kill me.

    RIP to a legend.
