Tipperary’s Queen of Country Louise Morrissey has paid a moving tribute to country legend Glen Campbell, who died this Tuesday aged 81 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Ms Morrissey joined a number of prominent Tipperary musicians in paying tribute to the man who brought the world such songs as Rhinestone Cowboy, By the Time I Get to Phoenix and Wichita Linesman.

“I was very saddened to hear of his death,” she told the Tipperary Star. “I am a huge fan of Glen Campbell.”

She recalled seeing Campbell, whose mother was Carrie Stone and came from Tipperary, at his last concert in the INAC in Killarney, and said he was “absolutely fantastic”.
