NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban will team up to pay tribute to Glen Campbell at next month's Country Music Association Awards.
Gill, Paisley and Urban — arguably country music's top three guitarists today and all three CMA entertainer of the year winners — will salute the heralded guitarist, Country Music Hall of Fame member and 1968 entertainer of the year. The 75-year-old "Rhinestone Cowboy" singer has Alzheimer's disease. He released his last studio album, "Ghost on the Canvas," in August and is on a goodbye tour.
The salute joins an already star-packed night. Lionel Richie will debut duets from his forthcoming country album "Tuskegee" with Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker and Little Big Town. And all five entertainer of the year nominees will perform as well.
