Glen Campbell made an indelible mark on the country music community, which continues to mourn the loss of the singer. In the latest tribute to the late legend, Chris Stapleton shares his respect through a memorable cover of “Rhinestone Cowboy.”

Stapleton took his All-American Road Show Tour to Hersey, Pa. on Aug. 10, where he prefaced his cover by discussing the death of Campbell two days prior.

“We lost a country music legend a couple days ago with the death of Glen Campbell,” he told the audience. “I’m going to try to do a Glen Campbell song tonight . . . and I’m going to send this one up to Glen wherever you are at tonight.”

Seconds into “Rhinestone Cowboy” the audience could be heard cheering and clapping along as they listened to Stapleton sing a whiskey-soaked version of Campbell’s biggest hit. By the time he got to the chorus, the crowd joined in to sing along. Watch Stapleton’s powerful cover above.

Campbell lost his long battle with Alzheimer’s disease on Aug. 8 at the age of 81. As news spread, the icon’s publicist, Tim Plumley, issued a statement from Campbell’s family:

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell, at the age of 81, following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease,” the statement reads.

Since his passing earlier this month, several artists have shared heartfelt covers and tributes to Campbell including Keith Urban, Jake Owen, John Mayer, Toby Keith and Tanya Tucker.
