Glen, this one's for you, without the bagpipes, sir. #RIPGlen

A post shared by Grand Ole Opry (@opry) on

Glen Campbell received quite a tribute during a recent concert at the Grand Ole Opry.

On Aug. 9, several country stars who graced the stage earlier in the evening joined forces to honor the late country legend. Jeannie Seely, the Oak Ridge Boys, Luke Combs, Michael Ray and Will Hoge stood on the famed stage to perform “Amazing Grace” together, dedicating the song to Campbell.

The Opry captured the moment and shared it on Instagram. “@GlenCampbell, this one’s for you, without the bagpipes, sir,” they write, alluding to Campbell’s penchant for playing bagpipes. The singer frequently performed with them on television and during his live show.

Campbell died on Aug. 8 at the age of 81 after a six-year battle with Alzheimer’s. The “Gentle On My Mind” singer was laid to rest in his hometown of Delight, Ark. on Aug. 10. His wife Kim shared his final moments to her Care Living website, writing, “I find immense comfort knowing that Glen’s spirit is now free and present with the Lord. I have no doubt that when he met his maker yesterday at 10AM, he was greeted with, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.'”
