"GLEN CAMPBELL… I'LL BE ME" to have U.S. Theatrical Premiere October 24

Film unveils the remarkable legacy of America's great country music legend and his courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GLEN CAMPBELL…I'LL BE ME, directed and produced by James Keach (producer of Walk The Line) and produced by Trevor Albert (Groundhog Day), will open in theaters in New York and Nashville on October 24, followed by a nationwide release to more than 50 cities. This powerful portrait of the life and career of great American music icon Glen Campbell reveals to the viewer the world of the singular talent who created hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman, Southern Nights and Gentle on My Mind.  Winner of the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Glen 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.  This epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen and Kim, and their unwavering caring for each other, chronicles a story of love, resilience and the power of song.  GLEN CAMPBELL…I'LL BE ME is the true tale of how America's greatest country star would not give up his music or his family, against all odds. 

"Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me," unveils the remarkable legacy America’s great country music legend. In theaters nationwide this fall.

GLEN CAMPBELL…I'LL BE ME features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others.  Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen's most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man.  With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.

PCH, the producer of the film, has partnered with Area23a, an event based theatrical distribution company, co-founded by Kirt Eftekhar and Richard Abramowitz for a unique hybrid theatrical release through a combination of large scale event screenings with music performances this summer, culminating with a national release of the film in top cities across the country this fall.  Nationwide screenings will be designed to provoke meaningful conversations about Alzheimer's that include resources for patients and families dealing with the disease.

About Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell's musical and entertainment career, covering nearly five decades, is perhaps unmatched for its prolific breadth, popular appeal – and flat-out musical accomplishment and achievement.  His guitar playing is legendary and can be heard on classic tracks from Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys, to Frank Sinatra's Strangers in the Night.

As a solo artist Glen has recorded some of the most beloved songs of his generation including Gentle On My Mind, Galveston and Rhinestone Cowboy.  He has been awarded five Grammy Awards and three Grammy Hall of Fame honors, seven Academy of Country Music awards, a Pioneer Award recognition, three American Music Awards, two Country Music Association Awards and three Gospel Music Association Dove Awards.  Glen was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.  Glen Campbell was the first artist to cross the boundary from country to the pop charts, which transcended him to true musical icon status both with the music industry and with fans. 

In 2011, Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and with the help of his wife and family decided to face the illness head on.   After publicly announcing his battle with Alzheimer's, he released the album Ghost on the Canvas and began his "Goodbye Tour."  Selling out concert halls across the globe to spectacular acclaim and standing ovations, the album and tour received some of the best reviews of his distinguished career.  On Feb 12, 2012 Glen performed on the Grammy Awards, to an audience of 39 million people, and was given the distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award.
