As part of receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, five-time Grammy winner Glen Campbell received a tribute from current country stars The Band Perry singing “Gentle On My Mind” and Blake Shelton on “Southern Nights.”
Then Glen took to the stage for his biggest song, “Rhinestone Cowboy.” He was decked out in his sparkly best and seemed to be having just a great time up there. Also – Paul McCartney was in the audience bopping in time to the music, singing along and fist-pumping in the air. Because Sir Paul is awesome.
Prior to the show, Blake Shelton said on the red carpet that this is going to be one of those things when his career is over that he looks back on as one of the coolest things he’s ever done.
Video below. It reminded us a lot of the Loretta Lynn tribute at the 2010 Country Music Association Awards.
