Celebrities of all types turned to social media to mourn country-pop legend Glen Campbell who died Tuesday

In addition to her own career, Campbell toured with her father during his final Goodbye Tour, which began after the country singer's diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease in 2011.

Long before he was a household name, Campbell was a studio musician in Los Angeles, part of the famous "Wrecking Crew", a loose cluster of studio players who backed stars on many hits of the day. When it started in 1979-1980, she called Campbell "the horniest man I ever met" and Campbell said, "I gave God a prayer and he gave me Tanya".

With me to talk about his impact on music, and the Valley's music scene is Niki D'Andrea, executive editor for Times Media Group. Wichita Lineman in particular became a huge success and was one of the most requested songs by USA soldiers stationed in Vietnam during the war. I remember being touched by the tenderness of his children sharing the stage with their father at one of his last performances in Branson, MO.

Here are five things you didn't know about him.

Who knew that country singer Glen Campbell was the first person to employ comedian and actor Steve Martin as a writer?

These were Campbell's collaborations with songwriter Jimmy Webb and arguably his biggest hits.

Carole King: "RIP Glen Campbell - a great singer and musician who wrote and chose to cover great songs". Campbell demonstrated the highest level of sensitivity and insight in writing and singing a song that reflected his love and appreciation of his family, and only he could write a song that tells the story in such a poignant way. He was 81-years-old.

In truth, Glen Campbell had been saying farewell for some time.

John Murray managed the Rialto Theatre in Derry for 14 years and said working with Campbell was a pleasure.

Campbell also acted in movies, like the John Wayne classic True Grit. "RIP Glen. Arkansas and indeed the world will think of you often as we continue to enjoy your musical legacy".

The exact scope of Campbell's output in the '50s and '60s is unknown, because producers cloaked who actually played on a session.

While no cause of death was given; Campbell was battling Alzheimer's disease. When he was arrested, he kneed one of the officers in the thigh and spent the night in a jail cell.

Rhinestone Cowboy, in 1975, had similar levels of success around the globe, and went to No 4 in the British charts. With their lysergic strings and echoing guitars, their soft textures and clean melodies, his recordings suggest another place-not just a time passed but a sonic ideal that exists only in the corners of our mind.

A few months ago, News 4 sat down with Kim, Campbell's wife of 35 years.
