Glen Campbell - I'll be Me
It’s 2011, and the country music legend, humble family man, winner of the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, has just received a devastating diagnosis…
He has Alzheimer’s Disease, and he’s about to begin promoting what will now become his last album, Ghost on the Canvas. What follows is upsetting and uplifting by turns.
On an emotional star-spangled rodeo-ride, we follow Glen, wife Kim and his family on an epic journey from the Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl and all points in between.
The planned three weeks of shows turns into a mammoth 151-date tour, with stunning performances of classics such as Rhinestone Cowboy and Wichita Lineman alongside heartfelt tributes from the likes of Bill Clinton, U2’s The Edge, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and more.
There’s no denying the film’s emotional toll but Campbell’s good humour and sheer courage are every bit as inspiring as his awesome musical legacy.
Also features a host of heartfelt tributes from celebrity friends including Jimmy Webb, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, U2’s The Edge, Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, Steve Martin.
