After Glen Campbell announced his Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, he still performed for captive audiences who crooned with him to tunes like 'Gentle On My Mind' and 'Rhinestone Cowboy.' Sadly, now that the disease has begun to take its course, he is unlikely to perform for fans again.
Everyone has that one disease that immediately floods their thoughts with fear. It’s the disease that runs in their family and has taken someone they love. Just the mention of it makes your heart stop for a second. For some it’s cancer; for others it’s heart disease. For me, it’s Alzheimer’s Disease.
Although country music legend Glen Campbell is working on an album of re-recorded hits, he struggles with Alzheimer's Disease daily. The singer's daughter, Ashley Campbell, gave an emotional plea for Alzheimer's research at a Senate hearing at Capitol Hill this week; her testimony is a grim reminder that this is a heartbreaking disease.
Glen Campbell's battle with Alzheimer's has forced him to stop touring but the 'Gentle on My Mind' hitmaker will still contribute to country music. He's planning an upcoming album of re-recorded hits, entitled 'See You There.'
Last summer, the world was saddened by the news that legendary country star Glen Campbell was in the beginning stages of his battle with Alzheimer’s. Rather than laying low and disappearing from the music scene, Campbell announced a full-blown tour as his way to say thank you to his loyal fans throughout the years.
