Clearly you couldn't get any better at all for this tribute. Little Big Town's tribute of Witchita was awesome and Jimmy Webb's description was spot on. Like Jimmy said they slowed it down, their voices were angelic, and it was clear as could be it moved everyone right at the heart strings.

Last Wednesday at the CMA Awards, Jimmy Webb and Little Big Town performed a hauntingly beautiful cover of one of Glen Campbell's most iconic hit songs, "Wichita Lineman".
Their performance was dedicated to Glen Campbell and is now being referred to as one of the most memorable moments of the three-hour awards show.

The tribute song was released for streaming within two days of the broadcast and is available at:

Also Carrie Underwood sang an emotional cover of "Softly and Tenderly" during the memorial segment of the CMAs. This segment remembered and honored Glen Campbell and other artists (Leon Russell, Tom Petty) who passed away this year as well as the 58 victims who lost their lives at the tragic mass-shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

(As a side note, Glen released a cover of this song on his Favorite Hymns album in 1989.)
