As the world solemnly gets used to life without country music legend Glen Campbell in it following his August 8 death at the age of 81, many fans are finding comfort in the music he left behind, from hits such as “Southern Nights” and “Rhinestone Cowboy” to a haunting song entitled “Adios.”
The Jimmy Webb-penned song was featured on a 2012 album from Glen, but it truly found its place as part of his legacy earlier this year, when a music video to accompany the song was released.
In the video, Glen is shown in his heyday looking content and happy throughout the years. Mixed within those special moments is a musical journey of sorts for his legendary guitar, which takes its final trip from Nashville to California. During its fateful trip, the guitar makes its way into the hands of a number of people from his daughter Ashley Campbell to his grandson, Jeremy Olson.
And if that doesn’t hit you in the heart, you might want to check your pulse.
“My father’s music has touched so many people’s lives, so I hope that this video will resonate with a lot of people,” Ashley said in a statement. “Music moves through us all in different ways, lighting a fire in each of us. That fire will always be burning as music keeps moving and as each of us continues to pass the torch.”
