When country music legend Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease he was told to prepare for the worst.

Instead, Glen and his wife went public with the diagnosis and set out on a 'Goodbye Tour'.

'Glen Campbell I'll Be Me' tells the story of the shows, and a great cast of contributors includes The Edge - along with Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow and Taylor Swift. CNN, this Sunday, June 28.

GREATEST DOC EVER!
I screened Glen Campbell's DOC last year and was moved to sobbing... As someone with a family member suffering through the hell that is Alzheimer's, I can't recommend this film enough. It is SO well done, it is so real and it entertains as it breaks your heart. Glen's family, friends, and everyone he met along the musical way, including The Edge, is so supportive and brilliant in this film. I never knew Glen Campbell was funny! I've been a fan my entire life. I pray every U2 fan watches this important reality film this weekend. It is not the reality TV you may be used to, but this is REAL LIFE with ALZ. To The Edge: God bless you for participating and well done! Kimbirly

Thank you for spotlighting Alzheimer's
Glen's story represents the millions of us out here who have cared for, and lost our loved ones to this horrible disease. Thank you for bringing this darkness to light. Awareness brings funding, and with funding, maybe one day, a cure. #ENDALZ

I Ain't Done Yet
Glen Campbell is an amazing talent. When I was a kid he lived down the street from us, and he hosted a talent show we performed in. He is way cool, and he's is right, the best is yet to come. God bless Glenn !!!
