Glen Campbell's Life Took True Grit

The important role casinos played in the life of Glen Campbell Tanya Tucker on Glen Campbell: 'I'll Forever Love You, Glen'

Glen Campbell had over 20 hits in the U.S. Top 40 list and released 25 Top 10 singles on country hit lists.

Campbell's abilities didn't end with his voice. The duo recorded the 1981 hit "Dream Lover", but their public battles and alleged wild lifestyle often played out in the press and overshadowed their music.

"The whole lid just blew off", Campbell told the AP.

Or his more famous song: "I've been walkin' these streets so long/Singin' the same old song/I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway/Where hustle's the name of the game/And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain/There's been a load of compromisin'/On the road to my horizon/But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me/Like a rhinestone cowboy/Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo..."

Tucker says such forgiveness is what led her to record a new song for Campbell, the ballad "Forever Loving You". The seventh son of 12 children, he however demonstrated his musical talents early in his youth where he started the guitar with expertise. He was in the band after that 1958 instrumental.

While Tanya Tucker had other high-profile romances with Don Johnson and Andy Gibb, she has long said Campbell will always be the love of her life.

Other casinos the country music star played include the French Lick Resort Casino in IN, the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort & Casino in Mescalero, NM, and the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, CT. His breakthrough song, however, came in 1967 with the debut of Gentle on my Mind, which was later followed by another hit in 1968 entitled Wichita Lineman. He was also a movie star, joining John Wayne in classic Western "True Grit". Alan Jackson ✔said: "I owe Glen my gratitude; he was my first contact in Nashville".

Even as the country genre slipped in a niche in a changed world.

Glen's passing comes after he retired from the music industry in 2011 following his Alzheimer's diagnoses, which his daughter Ashley described at the time as "really good" for his health. His last performance was in Napa, California on November 2012 and was moved to long-term care and treatment center before the spring of 2014.
