Back in 2014, three years after Glen Campbell announced he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill pleased a crowd by channeling “Rhinestone Cowboy.”

The beautiful moment happened during one of the powerhouse couple’s concerts at The Venetian hotel, as part of their popular “Soul2Soul” residency in Las Vegas.

With his wife sitting beside him, Tim situated himself on a stool and began serenading the audience with Glen’s 1975 hit that, to this day, is still so timeless.


Faith, who wore an elegant black ensemble and kept her hair in place with bobby pins, swayed back and forth while her hubby crooned out the country classic. After the first chorus, Faith and the fans joined in with their voices, turning the performance into a one-of-a-kind sing-along.

Aside from that memorable moment, Tim has honored Glen with numerous tributes. In 2015, he took to the Oscars stage with a rendition of the legendary singer and guitarist’s last recorded song, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” He also teamed up with fellow country singer and tour opener Charlie Worsham earlier this year to perform a stripped-down version of “Rhinestone Cowboy.”

After revealing his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, Glen, who was popular in music, television and films, slowly began to pull back from the public. He died Aug. 8 at the age of 81 and was laid to rest in his home state of Arkansas the following day.
