The featured artist this week on the KNUE Gold Rush will be Glen Campbell. We'll be playing the best of Glen Campbell and more of your favorites from the '70's, '80's and '90's.   Glen Campbell suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and has lived in a special facility for Alzheimer patients. Before then, he lived with his family, including wife Kim, at his home in Nashville. But caring for him at home had gotten to great for the family to handle alone.Recently his daughter, Debby, wants to have him moved from the facility.

According to Country Weekly here's what his daughter had to say:

“I think my dad deserves better than this,” Debby Campbell told Country Weekly. “I’m not saying it’s bad by any means, but I don’t think he’s getting the attention that he needs. If I felt that [his family in Nashville] was spending hours with him and eating meals with him, it would be different. If I lived there, I would want to spend from the time he wakes in the morning until the evening with him . . . But why can’t I do that in the comfort of my own home with him instead of flying to Nashville and going to a care facility?”

 

It's sad to see such a legend suffer from this horrible debilitating disease. So we will honor him this Saturday on the Gold Rush. Keep praying for Glen and his family that they will find peace.The KNUE Gold Rush is Saturday morning from 8am - 10am on 101.5 KNUE.
