The documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, is released. The documentary chronicles what went on behind the scenes as the performer’s mind degenerated. Campbell’s wife, Kim Woolen:
I’m really proud of him … to be so courageous, to open up and be vulnerable before the whole world.
The band performs the Glen Campbell song, Covers Gentle On My Mind, at the 48th Annual CMA Awards.
Campbell releases the music video for I’m Not Gonna Miss You. The video reveals Campbell’s struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease, and will be the last song he performs before entering a care facility. Campbell sings
You’re the last person I will love / You’re the last face I will recall / And best of all / I’m not gonna miss you
as the video shows real footage of a doctor showing Campbell X-rays of his brain, detailing how the disease will eat away at his memories.
Campbell is moved to a memory care facility in Nashville after dealing with Alzheimer’s for the past three years. Campbell’s wife, Kim Woolen:
There were five of us taking care of him and we were all completely exhausted. No one was getting any sleep and we were just struggling every second to keep him safe – we felt like it wasn’t safe anymore.
Campbell’s daughter, Ashley:
[It can be dangerous] with all the household appliances and dish soap liquid and olive oil. He’ll drink anything … if you lose concentration for a second, he could hurt himself.
