Country music superstar Glen Campbell has been laid to rest in his home town of Delight, Arkansas.

An announcement on Campbell's official Facebook page said a private ceremony had taken place and there would be a private memorial, but the date has not been announced.

Campbell, 81, perhaps best known for his hits Rhinestone Cowboy and Wichita Lineman, died on Tuesday in Nashville, Tennessee.

He announced in 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
