Glen Campbell’s ‘Adios’ Music Video Hits Hard

Subscribe to Cat Country 102.9 on

The music video for the title track to Glen Campbell‘s final album, Adios, is out now. Readers can press play above to watch the emotional musical sendoff for the Rhinestone Cowboy, which finds several members of Campbell’s family handing off his worn-but-beloved guitar on a cross-country trek from Nashville to California.

Campbell’s guitar, video director Peter Zavadil explains, is “a symbol of Glen’s legacy … a ‘spiritual baton,’ as it wre, carried on by all those influenced by his music, beginning with one of his daughters and ending with one of his grandsons.”

“In my view, “Adios” is Glen’s farewell to the spotlight. I wanted the music video to reflect those sentiments,” Zavadil says in a press release. “The fact that no one will ever hold a match to Glen’s skill on the guitar is memorialized by giving his guitar a proper ‘Viking Funeral’ on the California coast.”

The “Adios” music video opens in Nashville with Campbell’s daughter Ashley, who also plays banjo and sings backup vocals throughout the Adios album. From there, the guitar is handed off to family members who have been influenced by Campbell’s enduring musical career, ending with his grandson, Jeremy Olson, on the California coastline.

“My grandfather is a man I’ve loved and admired my entire life. The emotion when dealing with a project that is his last, sung his unique way, really hit home and brought back all the amazing memories he and I have shared,” Olson says in the release. “This single and album truly encompasses his career and is something I know he would be proud of, which is why I couldn’t be more honored to be involved.”

Adios is available for download now at Amazon and iTunes.
