Glen Campbell started his career in 1954, and his solo career in 1961. In 1965 he hit #45 with a version of "Universal Soldier"
(and, ironically, also stated that "People advocating burning draft cards should be hung.")
1967's "Gentle On My Mind"
was followed by "By the Time I Get to Phoenix"
later in 1967, and "Wichita Lineman"
His career continued nearly unabated with a string of hits, a TV show, and continued popularity, but, early in 2011, Glenn was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, he talked about it some in an appearance on Ellen.
Since then, he's continued with a "final tour", released an album "Ghost on the Canvas" which includes the beautiful "A Better Place"
(which is the whole point of this FPP).
