Country music legend Glen Campbell has been fighting Alzheimer’s since 2011, and he released a heartbreaking song about his disease. “Not Gonna Miss You” is a song written to his wife about how he will never suffer the pain of missing her, because of the disease’s effect on his mind.
Now his son – Shannon Campbell – is paying his respects to his legendary father. Shannon is himself a talented singer and musician. Watch (below) as he shows the pain of slowly losing his father. Joined by a drummer and violin player, this version of his father’s song is heartbreaking and sad.
And it’s filmed inside of Glen Campbell’s Nashville home, poignantly in his unfinished attic.
