Glen Campbell's Daughter Releases Video Inspired By Star's Alzheimer's

(Radio.com) Ashley Campbell, daughter of iconic country singer Glen Campbell, has released a video for a tune inspired by her father's struggle with Alzheimer's. The songstress wrote "Remembering" after the end of her father's farewell tour, while she was living with her parents at their home in Malibu, Calif.

'I was sitting by the fireplace in our living room, and I think my mom and dad were in the kitchen, cooking dinner or something," she told The Boot. 'I started coming up with the run, the intro of the song, and immediately, that first line came to me: 'Four years old, running up the stairs to your bed.' I was just thinking about my dad, and so I knew that was going to be a song about my dad."

The song has a hopeful message with Ashley singing, "Daddy, don't you worry, I'll do the remembering." However, the the reality of her father's condition is still on her mind.

"It's a very slow goodbye," she admits. "And what kills me is knowing what's coming and also knowing that, when I do have to say goodbye, that it's going to hit me just as hard as if I had to say goodbye suddenly -- maybe even worse, I don't know." Read more here.
