Publisher's Summary

This audiobook edition features eleven songs, including Nat King Cole’s “Unforgettable”, Ashley Campbell’s “Remembering”, and Glen Campbell’s "Gentle on My Mind”.

The pause-resisting, never-before-told story of Kim Campbell's rollercoaster 34-year marriage to music legend Glen Campbell, including how Kim helped Glen finally conquer his addictions only to face their greatest challenge when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

Kim Campbell was a fresh-faced 22-year-old dancer at Radio City Music Hall when a friend introduced her to Glen Campbell, the chart-topping, Grammy-winning, Oscar-nominated entertainer. The two performers from small Southern towns quickly fell in love, a bond that produced a 34-year marriage and three children.

In Gentle on My Mind, Kim tells the complete, no-holds-barred story of their relationship, recounting the highest of highs - award shows, acclaimed performances, the birth of their children, encounters with Mick Fleetwood, Waylon Jennings, Alan Jackson, Alice Cooper, Jane Seymour, and others - and the lowest of lows, including battles with alcohol and drug addiction and, finally, Glen’s diagnosis, decline, and death from Alzeheimer's.

With extraordinary candor, astonishing bravery, and a lively sense of humor, Kim Campbell reveals the whole truth of life with an entertainment giant and of caring for and loving him amid the extraordinary challenge of Alzheimer's disease. This is a remarkable account of enduring love, quiet strength, and never-faltering faith. 

Experience the moments in Glen and Kim's story with photos available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

It’s an interesting story, but...

If you are a fan of Glen Campbell you will enjoy his story. Kim Campbell’s voice is not appealing to listen to for 6 hours, she also talks too much about her love of dance, her dance classes, her dance performances and even her shopping for dance clothes, she sneaks it in every chance she gets.

A Look into the Life of a Star and his family

I found this book to be an honest view of the man,Glen Campbell, through the eyes of a loving wife. Kim may have been 22 years younger than Glen but she displayed maturity and spirituality way beyond her years. Glen was lucky she came into his life. Very sad to see a sweet and vibrant man succumb to dementia. I too am traveling this journey and found comfort in hearing about Kim and Glens journey. I now know that I don’t travel this road alone as many face the same problems whether rich or poor. This was an excellent and helpful book for me. I also enjoyed hearing Glen sing some of the songs mentioned. Now I am making it a point to listen and pay attention to his recordings since they were a part of this very sweet and talented man.

Spiritually, emotionally & eloquently inspiring

As a singer & musician since I was 17 in Spain, hired by an established variety & Top 40 band, all at least 10 years my senior. Still under the ruling of the Dictator Franco, even with a Spanish guy in the band. We were limited to the 3 clubs on base & with our variety, for base celebrations. Still it was the band I was most proud to be a part of. I'd made a vow before age 13, that my wife & children would always be #1in my life. Once I felt I'd done all I could to raise my boys into the great young men they became, I started out to start my music career over. Got as far as opening with a Classic rock, variety band, for the Gatlin brothers, who came out early to compliment the band & my voice. Though I had to be told. since I was lugging my 400 watt stereo amp across the infield grass of the baseball stadium we played ar. Within less than a year I was fighting for my life, against stage 3 Melanoma & 6 self administered Interferon injections a week for a year. Due to several prior health issues, I beat the cancer, but ended up disabled. But not s word about me, I was alive to see my sons graduate & become extremely successful young men. I lost my oldest at 36, & watched in horror as my now ex-wife fell into alcoholism & after 5 years of hell, she chose divorce. Never would've even been thought about by me. The vows I gave to God & my wife, were in sickness & health. But I was powerless once she set her mind. Kim's story brought tears to my eyes, as I dealt with an alcoholic father & wife. She's an eloquent story teller & you can hear the love & devotion she has & had. Glen was a lucky man in so many ways. He also went through hell, many times over. Probably the source of his emotional singing. You always felt Glen's soul in his voice & saw the genuine great man he was sober. I know all to well how alcohol can make your soul mate or father a complete stranger & able to break your heart, spirit & mind
Kim's love & faith helped Glen come from the darkness. into the greatest years of his life. Sadly cut short by a horrific disease. That I presume were harder for Kim. I feel her pain, in far too many ways I've experienced, but there's no way I could've told the story as eloquently as Kim. Worth every dime & second of your time.

Rest In Peace Glen

A great book for me personally, as Glens songs always take me back to a time where all in my life was only good.
The author was a little rough on Tanya Tucker though, as there were not to many men that would not be attracted to her back in the day, or today for that matter. The last part of the book was much easier to digest, as his wife and family were present to shower this imperfect man with love, and no doubt, God had him sing a couple of tunes for Him.

meh

I learned a lot about Glen and his wife seems lovely. The story kind of dragged. If you are a big Glen fan then this might be up your alley. I did love the songs added into the audio book.

A Look Into Glen and Kim's Life

Kim Campbell shared a deep look into the lives of herself and Glen Campbell.
A look into how to love unselfishly and with God's love, anything is possible.
it's not a book of a fairytale life. It is a sincere book, with real life ups and downs.

Excellent 🎼💕🎼

Kim Campbell articulates perfectly living with the other-worldly talented but troubled Glen Campbell. For those who have lived or loved an alcoholic, drug addict, or someone afflicted with Dementia/Alzheimers, this is a must listen, full of hope and love. Glen’s music is perfectly placed within this audible story. In my opinion this audible book should win an award. Bravo!
