Glen Campbell was reunited with hitmaker Jimmy Webb at the Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday night as part of a star-studded tribute to the legend.
The singer, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in June, was honored by Webb, who performed Galveston, Wichita Lineman and By The Time I Get to Phoenix – songs he wrote for the veteran – with Vince Gill, Keith Urban and CMAs co-host Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena event in Nashville, Tennessee.

Campbell held back proud tears as he watched from his seat in the audience as a photo montage rolled by on a big screen above the performers during the set.
