Glen Campbell - "A Better Place" Video

After he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s last year, the country music legend Glen Campbell decided to give one last album and tour. The album was Ghosts On The Canvas, and its final single is “A Better Place,” a heartrending song about a life well lived. Campbell intends for its video to be his last one. The clip stars Queens Of The Stone Age leader Josh Homme as, in his words, “the bartender from The Shining,” and it has Campbell flipping through pictures of his life. Kii Arens and Jason Trucco direct. Watch it below.

  1. Well that was nice. The song lands somewhere between Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” and Dewey Cox’s “Beautiful Ride” and it’s very nice song outside of it context and a very beautiful one within its context. Man Campbell is in such a crazy stage of his life right now and he’s really chosen a very interesting path in dealing with it as an artist.
