Oscar Nominee, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, and Country Music Hall of Fame member , Glen Campbell, recently documented his final tour while struggling with Alzheimer’s Disease in the Critics’ Choice nominated film, “Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me.” Fans can expect music from the documentary’s soundtrack on February 17th from Big Machine Records.
The soundtrack will feature the Oscar and Grammy nominated song, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” which was co-written by Campbell and producer Julian Raymond. The song is a collaboration with the famed Wrecking Crew, and is the last one Campbell ever recorded.
“Glen Campbell has recorded his final song and the result, ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You,’ is a poignant, confessional tune that serves as a stunningly personal coda to a career spent entertaining millions throughout the world.” Rolling Stone said of the soundtrack’s hit single.
“Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me” is an epic human drama that intimately showcases the man and his music throughout his struggle with Alzheimer’s. Chronicling the story of love, laughter, resilience and power of song, this film shows how against all odds, how America’s greatest country star would not give up.
The upcoming soundtrack is also composed of songs that capture the numerous facets of an Arkansas traveler who became a first call Los Angeles session player, toured with the Beach Boys and recorded one of ASCAP’s Most Played Songs, “Gentle On My Mind”, of all time. The translational reality of his music is evident in various demonstrations of the songs that have become a well-known part of the American musical vocabulary. The 10 tracks that make up the soundtrack are a witness to how music transcends moments, time and limitations and will exists in the hearts of all who embrace it.
“Gentle On My Mind” finds break-out young superstars The Band Perry considering the pull of being gone that colors John Hartford’s “Gentle On My Mind.” Kimberly Perry’s smoky alto balances the longing for what’s gone with the hope of what’s beyond the next horizon to reflect Campbell’s own innocent grasp of love and rambling that defined a generation almost a half century ago.
Big Machine Records is partnering with CMT, who will stream the entire soundtrack exclusively, the week before release. Listen now until February 16th to all 10 tracks exclusively on GlenCampbell.CMT.com and on the CMT Artists App.
