Glen Campbell Ends Touring Career
Glen Campbell is ending his touring career because his Alzheimer’s disease has progressed too far for him to continue. Despite the unfortunate setback, the legendary country music singer has also announced that he will release a new album, entitled See You There, on July 30. The record will feature re-imaginings of some of his iconic songs like “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Witchita Lineman,” and “Hey Little One.” See You There was recorded in 2011 during the same studio sessions that led to his last release, Ghost on the Canvas.
While Campbell’s Alzheimer’s has progressed too far for him to continue touring, the musician still remains healthy. He continues to play golf and still hangs out with many of his friends, including songwriter Jimmy Webb. Campbell will spend his 77th birthday this Monday in Washington, DC advocating for Alzheimer’s research.
