Glen Cambell...geeez, I grew up with hs songs.
(CNN) -- Even if you've never been a fan of Glen Campbell, this one's certain to tug at your heartstrings.
The Country Music Hall of
Fame member, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011, is out
with the video for the final song he'll ever record -- "I'm Not Gonna
Miss You." It was recorded in 2013 with producer Julian Raymond.
"I'm still here but yet
I'm gone/ I don't play guitar or sing my songs," the tune begins as it
details his struggles with the disease.
The poignant music video
that accompanies it spans Campbell's career. It contrasts Campbell
singing in the studio with home video and clips from throughout his
career. There are even images of doctors discussing his brain scans with

Because of the
progression of the disease, the 78-year-old Campbell was admitted to a
special care facility in Nashville in April.
"Sadly, Glen's condition
has progressed enough that we were no longer able to keep him at home,"
Campbell's family said in a statement to Rolling Stone. "He is getting
fantastic care and we get to see him every day. Our family wants to
thank everyone for their continued prayers, love and support."
Campbell, who was
inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and is best known
for his hits like "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Wichita Lineman," took his
Alzheimer's in stride.
Campbell's daughter shares his struggle
"I just take it as it
comes, you know," Campbell said in a CNN interview in February 2012. "I
know that I have a problem with that (forgetfulness), but it doesn't
bother me. If you're going to have it handed to you, you have got to
take it, anyway. So that is the way I look at it."
In a career that spans five decades, he released his final album "Ghost on Canvas" in 2011 and then went on a farewell tour.
