    Country Music Hall of Fame member and the legendary Glen Campbell has recorded his last song.

    "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" was written by Campbell and Julian Raymond specifically for a new documentary titled Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.

    Produced by Raymond, the song was recorded in the Los Angeles-based Sunset Sound Factory and East West Recording Studios. The song will be released on September 30 to all digital retailers.

    With a mere handful of piano chords, then a swell of harmonies, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" opens into the poignant, yet clear-eyed revelation of the things Alzheimer's steals.

    Almost lumbering through the melody, Campbell's weathered tenor confesses the painful truths of what is lost, the cost – and the reality that it will all be lost to him, the man who can't remember. Pedal steel weeps, strings bathe the melody that rises against drums and an electric guitar that mirrors the unbreakable passage of life and time.

    What a bittersweet but somewhat satisfying send-off for a country music legend.

    Previewing the full body of work, this soundtrack EP will be released on September 30 and include the following tracks:

    1. I'm Not Gonna Miss You
    2. Gentle On My Mind (performed by The Band Perry)
    3. Home Again (performed by Ashley Campbell)
    4. Wichita Lineman (Live from Ryman Auditorium)
    5. A Better Place (Live from Ryman Auditorium)

    A complete soundtrack featuring additional tracks from the film will be released later this fall.

    Will you be checking out a country legend's last song?
