Some of the biggest names in country music took to social media following news of the death of country music icon Glen Campbell.

Campbell died Tuesday at age 81, according to his official website.

The Country Music Hall of Fame issued the following statement about Campbell's death:

Had Glen Campbell “only” played guitar and never voiced a note, he would have spent a lifetime as one of America’s most consequential recording musicians. Had he never played guitar and “only” sung, his voice would rank with American music’s most riveting, expressive, and enduring. He left indelible marks as a musician, a singer, and an entertainer, and he bravely shared his incalculable talent with adoring audiences even as he fought a cruel and dread disease. To all of us who heard and loved his soulful music, he was a delight.

Little Feather, which features Glen Campbell's son Shannon Campbell, issued the following statement:

To the world Glen Campbell is iconic, but to Shannon he was his one and only father. We send our most sincere condolences to our band-brother Shannon Campbell and his family. The legacy of his father is one we will always cherish and his talent will live on through Shannon as first and foremost, our brother, but as the son of the Glen Campbell. We will have his presence with us always and our hearts go out to the entire family.
