    Glen Campbell's life story is coming to the multiplex.

    The documentary Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me, directed and produced by James Keach, will open in theaters in New York on October 24, followed by a national release to 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."

    Campbell is a country icon and 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.

    Break out the Kleenex.

    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, appear in the film.

    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.
