Toby Keith paid homage to Glen Campbell on Wednesday night (Aug. 9) at his concert in Coney Island, N.Y. Readers can press play above to watch the sentimental moment, a cover of Campbell’s “Wichita Lineman.”
“A great American country icon passed away this weekend: The great Glen Campbell passed away,” Keith said to his audience before the song, as pictures of Campbell (including one of Keith and Campbell together) appeared behind him onstage, “and we’re gonna pay homage to him tonight.”
Keith’s moving rendition of “Wichita Lineman” brought the rowdy crowd into a reverent lull as he emulated the slow and wistful style of Campbell’s original sound. The song was complete with a horn section and guitar solo, much like Campbell’s own, from Keith’s lead guitar player.
