Last week, country music legend and Glen Campbell passed away after a hard-fought battle with Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 81.

Campbell, a Kentucky athletics fan and friend of former football coach Fran Curci, was famous for songs such as Galveston, Rhinestone Cowboy, Gentle on My Mind, and Southern Nights, among countless others.
