Entertainment News: ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ Glen Campbell Dies at 81

Nashville – Glen Campbell had many acts in his long career – sought after session guitarist, singer, TV & movie star and country personality – but his greatest contribution to culture may be the 2011 public announcement of his Alzheimer’s disease, and the documentary about the condition, “I’ll Be Me.” Campbell died on August 8th, 2017. He was 81.

The amiable persona he built as a pop music star was amplified by his variety show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” which ran on CBS-tv from 1969 to 1972. The show opened every week with his hit song “Gentle on My Mind,” and featured the good time personality of Campbell interacting with the guests and musical acts, which included an eclectic mix of artists like Ray Charles, The Monkees, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, The Righteous Brothers, Liza Minnelli and Tom Jones. And this was all before his signature song, “Rhinestone Cowboy,” became an unlikely number one hit in

Country Music Legend Glen Campbell Dies at 81

Country Music Legend Glen Campbell Dies at 81
Country legend Glen Campbell, whose crossover hits “Gentle on My Mind,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Rhinestone Cowboy” forged a lasting bridge between country and pop music, died Tuesday. He was 81.

In 2011, Campbell announced he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and mounted a well-publicized farewell tour. His official Twitter posted the news. His daughter, Ashley Campbell, also shared a heartfelt message about the news.

Campbell was hardly the first country artist to break out of the rural regional radio ghetto — the Nashville Sound of Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves had produced several wide-appeal hits in the early ’60s — but his influence in expanding country music’s parameters and fanbase was substantial. His signature hits often combined orchestral arrangements and traditional pop hooks with countrified lyrical themes and vocal stylings, catalyzing both the “countrypolitan” and soft rock subgenres that would proliferate in the 1970s.

Sylvester Stallone To Direct Adam Driver In Tough As They Come

Though Sylvester Stallone’s currently putting the pieces together for another big, loud, dumb outing of The Expendables, it seems that he’s also made time for something quite different. That’s because he’ll be developing an adaptation of Travis Mills’ bestselling memoir Tough as They Come. Deadline’s reporting tonight that he’ll get behind the camera to direct with The Force Awakens‘ Adam Driver set to star in the lead role.

Potentially giving the actor the chance to court some awards attention once it releases, Tough as They Come will see him playing United States Army Staff Sergeant Mills, “one of only five soldiers to survive a quadruple amputation from a battlefield injury.” The bulk of the film will revolve around Mills’ relationship with his father-in-law, “who stood by his side from the day he got home from the hospital.”
