Tributes continue to pour in for the late Glen Campbell, following his death Tuesday after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Campbell was part of the first induction class at the Musicians Hall of Fame along with The Wrecking Crew, a group of studio musicians that recorded for several artists, including the Beach Boys and Frank Sinatra. 

Jay McDowell with the Musicians Hall of Fame said that Glen Campbell is a highlight of the museum for many, and for those who aren't very aware of his music, they try to explain how significant this career was.

"As kids come through today to the museum and we talk about Glen Campbell, we put him on a level with Adel and Taylor Swift, that he was for his time, the superstar," McDowell said. 

At the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame induction announcement ceremony on Wednesday, Buddy Cannon recalled his relationship with Campbell.

"Glen was probably my favorite singer of any genre ever," Cannon said, adding that he was able to write some songs for Campbell and sang harmonies on some of Campbell's songs. "We're all gonna miss Glen. I mean, I listened to him all night last night."
