Glen Cambpell is one of those artists, that even if you didn’t like country music, you’ve heard of anyway. His music is legendary and his name will be forever known. Now dealing with health issues and having to be surrounded by a very strong family, his career is going to change. This movie has some great detail of his career, life and the mark he will leave. The story is amazing and makes you feel as if you’ve known him forever. It’s crazy how celebrities can sometimes feel like friends, even though you’ve never met in person.
The photos and music take you back to certain places and times in your own life and it’s such a blessing to be able to see the man behind the stage in Glen Campbell’s life! It brought tears to my eyes seeing him not remember certain things and made me think of my Grama who suffered from dementia in her later years and forgot so much. I know for sure that the Lord gives us all of our good memories back when we finally enter in to His gates!
I would definitely recommend seeing this movie and helping to have this talented man never be something we forget!
About the Movie:
In 2011, when Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis – the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short “Goodbye Tour,” but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force.
About the Artist:
His TV show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, was a destination for the top artists of the era and an eye-opening look into American roots music for the mainstream. The combination of talents and personality that made him a TV star enabled him to transcend eras, remaining a hit-maker across decades as well as across genres.
