Web Extra: Glen Campbell Documentary Trailer

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A documentary on Glen Campbell was released in October 2014.
 
After a national release in New York "Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me" was then screened in theaters in more than 50 cities. (Watch the trailer embedded below).
 
The film follows Campbell’s three-year battle (at that time) with Alzheimer’s and was documented by award winning filmmaker, James Keach (producer of Walk The Line). 
 
Winner of the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Glen was the first country music star to cross over to the pop charts, opening a new realm of opportunity for generations of country musicians. In 2011, when 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. 
 
Campbell was admitted to an Alzheimer’s care facility earlier in 2014.
