CMA Awards to feature Glen Campbell tribute

As Glen Campbell bids farewell to country music fans with his tour, it has been announced he will be honored in a special tribute during the Country Music Association Awards. He recently played his last performance in Kentucky at the Renfro Valley Entertainment Center. Check out our full recap here.

Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban will team up to pay tribute to Glen Campbell at next month's Country Music Association Awards, which will be televised. All three are by far the top guitarists in country music. They will play a tribute in honor of Glen Campbell. Campbell is not only a fine guitar player, but also a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and 1968 CMA Entertainer of the Year.

Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease earlier this year. His last studio album, "Ghost On the Canvas" was released in August.
