“As heartbreaking as it is uplifting…I’ll Be Me may be difficult to watch at times, but it’s also warm, funny, and full of the music that defined a generation.” – Rolling Stone

With the sad news that country music legend Glen Campbell has passed away, Simply Media have added the highly acclaimed Oscar-nominated and Grammy award-winning documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me to its Vimeo On Demand streaming service. The documentary is also available on DVD.

The documentary tells the powerful and deeply moving story of Glen Campbell’s final goodbye tour. The perfect showcase of Campbell’s extraordinary life and achievements.

Featuring stunning live performances of some of Glen’s best-known songs such as Rhinestone Cowboy and Whichita Lineman, the film follows Glen Campbell on what became his final goodbye tour after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The documentary serves as a testament to the struggles that many who have this dreadful disease face, but also offer a beacon of hope as we look on at Glen Campbell’s extraordinary achievements before and after his diagnosis.

The film also includes emotional and heartfelt tributes from music industry icons and Glen’s famous friends, including Jimmy Webb, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, U2’s The Edge, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Bill Clinton, Keith Urban, Steve Martin, Taylor Swift and more.

It’s 2011, and the country music legend, humble family man and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame has just received a devastating diagnosis. He has Alzheimer’s disease. What follows is a poignant and uplifting story. Told by doctors to hang up his guitar for good, the determined Glen Campbell instead set out on an unprecedented “Goodbye Tour”.  The film documents his amazing journey.

We follow Glen and his family on an intimate and emotional, star-spangled rodeo-ride on their epic journey from the Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl, and everywhere in-between. Their planned three weeks of shows turns into a phenomenal 151-date sold-out tour across America which took over a year and a half. 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.
