Tim McGraw pays tribute to Glen Campbell with this country cover Facebook/TimMcGraw

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are deep into their joint “Soul2Soul: The World Tour.” The trek, which began in April, has them introducing fans to new opening acts each weekend.

Just recently it was Charlie Worsham, who played some dates with the married star couple. He joined the duo on three stops in Canada in late June.

During one stop, Charlie and Tim teamed up to pay tribute to the one and only Glen Campbell with an impromptu version of the icon’s ’70s hit, “Rhinestone Cowboy.”

In this video, Tim and Charlie, who appear backstage, can be heard discussing which song to sing before agreeing on Glen’s country classic. They then take turns singing the lead, while Charlie strums an acoustic guitar.

The two’s rendition of the cut is, indeed, spectacular, but not all that surprising, as Tim has been recruiting his openers to cover songs with him while out on the road. Prior to Charlie, he teamed up with Midland and the Shadowboxers.

This isn’t the first time that Tim has saluted Glen either. In fact, in 2015, he paid tribute to the legend — who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2011 — at the Oscars with a powerful rendition of Glen’s “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.”

Glen released his final studio album, the 12-track “Adiós,” in June.
