“A Better Place" is the second video from Glen Campbell's critically acclaimed album "Ghost On The Canvas."
Legendary singer, guitarist, and television star, Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011 and this will be his last tour.
This farewell video features Campbell looking back at his life and career. He also sends a personal message to his wife, Kimberley, a former Radio City Music Hall dancer that the Rhinestone Cowboy met on a blind date in 1981. "My love goes out to Kim, my amazing grace. You've been by my side through these changing times, and it means the world to me."
The video also features a special guest appearance from Joshua Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Them Crooked Vultures).
He is currently midway through his "The Goodbye Tour" to say a fond thank you to his legions of loyal fans. Campbell's final studio album "Ghost On The Canvas" is out now on Surfdog Records. The album represents a poignant look back at his life and career with contributions by the artists he continues to inspire.
Also, while we have you, watch this great vid of Glen with Stevie Wonder on his own show in 1969. It is the reason we did, still do and always will love Glen Campbell.
