I’m Not Gonna Miss You

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 1.30.42 PMOver the years I’ve sung a few of the songs Glen Campbell wrote here or there, but the reason I’m writing this post today is to express that his newest song, I’m Not Gonna Miss You, is truly amazing, inspiring artistry.

Our goal as writers, actors, singers, artists, performers… should be to express complete humanity. To share pain, trials, lessons (or the character’s pain, trials, lessons)… To hold big mirrors up for others to see their own humanity, and to uncover our own… To be vulnerable, brave and honest…

Listening to this song hurts, and it’s probably going to hurt again when I watch and listen to it again… It’s far from being Gentle On My Mind, it’s a toughie to face, and probably even more so for those of you that have lost loved ones to Alzheimer’s, but it is a brave, amazing, inspiring example of artist brilliance.

Thank you again Mister Campbell.

For those that don’t know, it has been stated that this is most likely will be his last recorded/released song, as he is continuing to battle Alzheimer’s.
