After years of battling Alzheimer's, singer Glen Campbell has decided to end his touring days. The disease has progressed too far for him to continue life on the road.
"Glen still wants to record, but it's just a matter of if he's able to," his wife, Kim Campbell, told The Washington Post. "It just gets more and more difficult for him all the time."
Before Alzheimer's disease cripples his memory completely, he plans to release an album, See You There, on Aug. 6. It reimagines some of his most popular songs, including Wichita Lineman, By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Rhinestone Cowboy and Hey Little One.
During his long career, the 77-year-old has been a pop star, a TV show host and an actor.
