But in 2010 Campbell received a devastating blow when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He bravely went public with the diagnosis six months later and subsequently embarked on a worldwide farewell tour in which he was supported by three of his kids on stage.
A film documentary about his struggle with Alzheimer’s, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, was released in 2014 to great critical acclaim. It also saw Campbell pick up a Best Original Song Oscar nomination at the Academy Awards. Two years later, Campbell received the Career Achievement Award from the Academy of Country Music, while in 2017 his poignant final album, Adios, hit the shelves.
