I was very fortunate to see Glen back a few years here in Houston. Sat fairly close to the stage and was in awe of his guitar playing. He played, Classical Gas and it was stunning.

The incredible Glen Campbell has won his battle and left on his heavenly journey! His passing was announced today by his family. As sad as we are to lose such an awesome talent from among us, we can look forward to singing with him in Jesus' Celebration Band someday! Our prayers are with his family, friends and associates at this heart-breaking time. ><>

Country music icon Glen Campbell has died at the age of 81, Fox News has learned.

His family announced, "It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell, at the age of 81, following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease."

The legend behind hits including “Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" recently released his final studio album. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease six years ago.

"Glen’s abilities to play, sing and remember songs began to rapidly decline after his diagnosis in 2011," the singer's wife Kim Campbell said in a press release in April. "A feeling of urgency grew to get him into the studio one last time to capture what magic was left. It was now or never."

Campbell revealed he had Alzheimer's disease in 2011, but he went on to record two albums and play more than 150 concerts. At the time, Kim Campbell said the tour was a way to help her husband combat the brain-ravaging disease and spend time with family members who made up his band and traveled with him.

He also starred in a documentary about life with Alzheimer's, "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me." He won a Grammy for his song "I'm Not Gonna Miss You," which plays at the conclusion of the documentary. The song also was nominated for a 2015 Oscar.

His wife revealed in March that the singer could no longer play guitar and or sing.

In an interview in April, Kim Campbell said, "Faith has always been the central part of our relationship. I’m so pleased that as Glen has entered the later stages of this illness, it’s evident that he has retained his awareness of God. That really comforts me to know that he has that sense of God’s presence in his life, that he’s not alone."

The music legend is survived by his wife, Kim, their three children, Cal, Shannon and Ashley; his children from previous marriages, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane, and Dillon; 10 grandchildren, great and great-great-grandchildren; sisters Barbara, Sandra, and Jane; and brothers John Wallace "Shorty" and Gerald.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
