When Glen Campbell announced his Alzheimer’s diagnosis earlier this year, it was a reminder of the fragility of the human condition and our short time here on Earth. His honesty of  his condition, and his decision to bid farewell to his fans with a final album, 'Ghost on the Canvas 'and Goodbye Tour, are an inspiration to countless fans young and old.

Campbell stopped by the Sirius XM studios recently to perform tracks from the recently released ‘Ghost on the Canvas,’ and a lucky handful of those fans were in attendance.

Campbell treated the audience to a blend of songs from the brand new ‘Ghost on the Canvas,’ as well as older hits, talked about the new material, saying, “The songs actually speak for themselves. All I thought about was ‘sing it in tune with feeling.’ I don’t want it loud, I don’t want it soft, I just want it nice and comfortable because if you get the feeling out of a song, you’ve won the war. I’ve had that happen on occasions where it all just fell in place. Amazing. Everything sounds so good. It’s just like you’re in a room with somebody.”
