Glen Campbell’s last record, Adios, is a swan song for the ailing Grammy-winning performer and TV personality, but his daughter said the recording was also therapeutic for him as well.

Campbell, known for his hits such as “Wichita Lineman” and “Gentle on My Mind,” was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011 after signs of memory loss. His 2011 farewell tour was captured in a popular Oscar-nominated documentary called Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, which won a Grammy for its soundtrack.

But shortly after the tour ended in 2012, Campbell’s family knew he might never get another chance to record.

“We definitely were seeing a decline, so we wanted him to be able to do this, while he still could,” Ashley Campbell said. “So definitely we didn’t think there was going to be another album.”

“When we recorded it he could still sing these songs,” said Campbell. “And we could get him into the studio and he had so much joy being in the studio and working with Carl. So it was definitely, I think it was therapeutic for him as well.”
