Glen Campbell’s Final Music Triumph

Behind the Lyrics of "I'm Not Gonna Miss You"

Glen Campbell’s legions of loyal fans were disappointed when his original song, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” failed to win the best song category at the recent Academy Awards.

Although the honor went to John Legend and Common for “Glory,” featured in the film Selma, the song written by Campbell and producer Julian Raymond is sure to be remembered for many years to come.

“I’m Not Gonna Miss You” was featured in Glen Campbell … I’ll Be Me, the 2014 documentary about his final tour after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

In annotations of the lyrics on Genius.com, contributors provide insight to the song’s meaning and provide additional perspective on the Country Music Hall of Fame member’s thought process as he dealt with the debilitating disease.
