      Glen Campbell "I'll be Me" to open Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival

      HOT SPRINGS - Glen Campbell "I'll be Me" will open the 23rd Annual Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival on October 10th.{}

      Directed and produced by James Keach (Walk The Line) and produced by Trevor Albert (Because of Winn Dixie, Groundhog Day), this powerful portrait of the life and career of great American music icon Glen Campbell opens to the viewer the world of the singular talent who created hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman and Gentle on My Mind.

      Winner of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award,{}Campbell 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 and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the 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.

      The film features interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Steve Martin, Taylor Swift among many others.
