Pleased to Announce

Guest Speaker: Kim Campbell

Hailing from North Carolina, Kim Campbell always felt the draw of the big city. After graduating with a degree in Dance and Drama, she traveled to New York City where she became a dancer at Radio City Music Hall. During her time in New York, she met country/pop artist Glen Campbell. After a whirlwind romance, they were married in 1982 and planted their roots in Phoenix, Arizona. A consummate homemaker, Kim and her husband grew in their relationship with the Lord and instilled their unyielding faith in their three children - Cal, Shannon, and Ashley.

In 2005, they moved to Malibu, California to be closer to their children. Kim gave her constant support to her husband who continued to awe the world with his musical prowess. In 2011, Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and Kim stood by her husband through a tumultuous sea of adversity. She and her husband courageously decided to share his battle with the disease by inviting filmmakers James Keach and Trevor Albert to document Glen's Goodbye Tour. She was by his side every step of the way for what turned out to be an extensive, 151 show world tour culminating in the documentary, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.

In 2013, Kim and Glen made the move to Nashville, Tennessee. Her time now revolves around spending time with Glen at his memory support community and raising awareness for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers.
