Weekend Listening: Glen Campbell Farewell Video For “A Better Place”
The show began with tributes from some of Campbell’s friends including Kris Kristofferson, Lucinda Williams, and Jackson Browne, and the hour-long set Campbell played included classics like “Gentle On My Mind” and new material from his final album Ghost On The Canvas.
The same month, Campbell released a touching video for his song, “A Better Place,” on his official YouTube channel.
For the first two minutes and 20+ seconds, we see pictures from Campbell’s personal and professional lives to the backdrop of such poignant lyrics as –
I’ve tried and I have failed, Lord,
I’ve won and I have lost.
I’ve lived and I have loved, Lord,
Sometimes at such a cost.
– and the video wraps up with a personal message from Campbell, speaking on his music career, closing the book on that part of his life, and thanking his fans and family.
Head over to YouTube to watch the official video for “A Better Place.”
