You can read about the award presentation on Sounds Like Nashville's website here:

During the CMA awards ceremony, a musical tribute to Glen Campbell was performed by Little Big Town accompanied by Jimmy Webb on piano.
They covered Glen's iconic song "Wichita Lineman".
Their haunting yet beautiful performance received a STANDING OVATION from the CMA audience that included Kim, Ashley and Shannon Campbell.
Fans can watch a short clip of this tremendous performance on Billboard.com at:

After the tribute, Jimmy Webb was interviewed by Sounds Like Nashville.
This clip begins with Jimmy talking about the Little Big Town artists and ends with his thoughts about Glen last night (you'll need tissues after you watch this clip):





Kim Campbell was also interviewed. "Music is magic...."





Willie Nelson's son tweeted this post with a picture of Glen and Willie playing iconic guitars:

Time slips away, but isn't it funny (wonderful) that the voices of Glen Campbell and Willie Nelson will always be singing in the wire for generations to come. :)

I gotta go now,
I guess I'll see you around.
But I don't know when though,
'Cuz I never know when I'll be back in town.
But remember what I tell you,
That in time you're gonna pay
Well ain't it surprising (that is surprising) how time slips away.
How time just slips away.

--As recorded by Glen Campbell and Willie Nelson on Glen's last studio album, 'ADIOS'

As we look forward to this year's CMA Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 8th, we remember and honor Glen Campbell's long association with the Country Music Association including his participation in the CMA's 25th anniversary celebration held at the White House in March 1983.

Billboard reported on this event and also published a cover photo with President Ronald Reagan, CMA Chairman Sam Marmaduke, and a few of the other CMA members in attendance that evening--including Glen Campbell.

Nov. 2: Dan Montgomery of Gold Derby predicts a win-- and it's long overdue

"2017 CMA Award predictions: Glen Campbell will get posthumous tribute with Musical Event of the Year win"

As of this writing, Campbell and Nelson get leading odds of 1/1 based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. That includes support from 18 of out Top 24 Users, who got the highest scores predicting last year’s CMAs, and 18 of our All-Star Top 24, who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ CMAs.
