Glen Campbell's I'll Be Me Movie ~ Review and Soundtrack Giveaway

From the producer of “Walk the Line”…

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.  

The film features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others. Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen’s most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man. With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.


The movie was hard to watch. I remember watching Glen Campbell when I was younger. The movie shows Cambell going to the dr and then following him doing shows and how Alzheimer’s disease is effecting him and his family. It is a great drama that shows the great bond between him and his wife Kim and how much they trully care for each other I'll Be Me shows just how much they would not give up against all odds. It is a wonderful and touching movie!

We love Glen Campbell and love all his songs but if we have to choose which is our favorite Glen Campbell song it would have to be Wichita Lineman.
