Pike County Arkansas native Glen Campbell is well known for many reasons… His CBS TV variety show, several movie appearances, and all of his music.

But he’s now in the news again. But not for a good reason.

People Magazine is reporting that the 75-year-old Campbell and his wife have come forward to reveal that he’s in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

Earlier this year, Campbell had announced plans for a new CD to be released in August and a US Tour.

With the new diagnosis, he says it’s now going to be a farewell tour. Plus, his wife Kim, wanted concert-goers to know about his condition in case he forgot his song lyrics.

Campbell tells People, “I still love making music, and I still love performing for my fans. I’d like to thank them for sticking with me through thick and thin.”

We’ll be keeping Glen and his family in our thoughts and prayers as they deal with the disease.
