Plot Summary:

The film unveils the remarkable legacy of America's great country music legend. This powerful portrait of the life and career of great American music icon Glen Campbell reveals to the viewer the world of the singular talent who created hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman, Southern Nights and Gentle on My Mind. 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 Campbell: I'll Be Me" is the true tale of how America's greatest country star would not give up his music or his family, against all odds. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with his Alzheimer's 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. This epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen and Kim, and their unwavering caring for each other, chronicles a story of love, resilience and the power of song. 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.
