BIG MACHINE RECORDS' TIM McGRAW will perform GLEN CAMPBELL's single "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" during the OSCARS. "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" was nominated in the "Best Original Song" category earlier this MONTH (NET NEWS 1/15).
Written with longtime producer and friend JULIAN RAYMOND, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" was the final song CAMPBELL was able to record before losing his ability to sing (NET NEWS 9/8/14). CAMPBELL, 78, was moved to a special care facility in APRIL of last year (NET NEWS 4/17/14) where he continues to undergo treatment for ALZHEIMERS.
“We are thrilled that TIM McGRAW will be singing ‘I'm Not Gonna Miss You’ on GLEN's behalf at the ACADEMY AWARDS," said the CAMPBELL family. "GLEN was always a fan of his music and TIM is sure to bring great emotional depth to the performance. We can't wait to hear it live!”
The OSCARS will be held on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22nd at the DOLBY THEATRE in HOLLYWOOD, and will be televised live on the ABC-TV at 7p (ET).
