Music legend Glen Campbell developed a name for himself early on as a country music singer, but when he crossed over into pop music, he became known as the first country artist to successfully cross over into the pop music genre. During his long career, Campbell, who has many ties to Nashville, was also known for gospel hits and his list of hits includes songs like: "Gentle on My Mind," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," "Wichita Lineman," "Oh Happy Day," and "Rhinestone Cowboy."

In 2011, his fans were stricken to learn the music veteran has in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. The announcement was made prior to his “Goodbye Tour” and was another first for the singer--the first time a major celebrity shared such a diagnosis while still performing.

Campbell has led a relatively transparent life, both the good and the bad, so perhaps it isn't so surprising the star has decided to make his intimate journey into Alzheimer's public. In fact, he persuaded director James Keach to document his story, and the resulting movie, "Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me," will premiere at the Nashville Film Festival on April 18, 2014.
