Watch Grand Ole Opry Acts Team Up for ‘Amazing Grace’ Tribute to Glen Campbell

The Oak Ridge Boys, Luke Combs and more paid tribute to Glen Campbell at the Grand Ole Opry recently with an a cappella version of “Amazing Grace.” Readers can press play above to watch the performance.

In addition to the Oaks and Combs, Jeannie Seely, Michael Ray and Will Hoge also participated in the Opry’s tribute to Campbell, which took place during an Aug. 9 performance. When sharing the video to social media, the Grand Ole Opry included the caption, “@GlenCampbell, this one’s for you, without the bagpipes, sir. 🙏” — a nod to Campbell’s affinity for using bagpipes during his own renditions of “Amazing Grace.”

Campbell died on Aug. 8, after living with Alzheimer’s disease for a number of years; he was buried in Arkansas on Aug. 9. In June of 2011, Campbell announced that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, after experiencing short-term memory loss for several years; the disease continued to rob him of his memories until his death.

During his lifetime, Campbell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and won a number of major awards, including numerous Grammy Awards and Grammy Hall of Fame honors, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, two CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), a number of ACM Awards and many more. His final album, Adios, was released in June.
