After a years-long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, country music legend Glen Campbell has passed away at the age of 81. Beloved by millions of fans, Campbell’s work went well beyond country to include gospel, rock, and folk music. His fans will miss him for years and years to come, but they will always have his music to remember him by.
Campbell’s daughter Ashley has added to the memories by producing a beautiful tribute to her father, a country song called “Remembering.” In her video of the song, Ashley recalls her father with words, images, and above all, music. She conjures up recollections of their time together and reminds us that even though we no longer have Glen Campbell, we will always be able to cherish our memories of the man and his music. She includes touching references to her father’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease and makes it clear how much effort she made to keep him close even as he inevitably slipped away.
Ashley Campbell’s tribute to her father not only shows how much she loved him but also serves as a display of her own musical talent. So while we greatly miss her father, we can look forward to hearing some great music from other members of the Campbell family.
