Campbell, the youngest of the late singer’s eight children, is a singer herself. Her first single, “Remembering,” was released in 2015 and served as a tribute to her father, whom also served as her musical mentor.
Speaking to Rolling Stone Country about how her father influenced her career Campbell said, “He wouldn’t have a career if people weren’t fans of his. It’s all about the listener. He always gives a lot of props to his fans, so I try to take after him in that respect.”
“Fans give love and love gets shared. Love was meant to be shared.”
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.
Glen Campbell died on Tuesday due to complications associated with Alzheimer’s. He was 81-years-old.
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell, at the age of 81, following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease,” a statement from the singer’s family read.
During his career, Campbell sold over 45 million records, reaching the top 40 list a whopping 21 times.
He released his final album, Adiós, earlier this year.
