John Mayer pays tribute to Glen Campbell
NASHVILLE — John Mayer paid tribute to Glen Campbell Tuesday night during a concert in Nashville, Tenn., hours after the country music legend died in the city.
Fan video shows Mayer performing an acoustic version “Gentle on My Mind,’’ a hit for Campbell released in 1968.
Mayer introduced the cover as his “favourite song in the world.’’ He told the audience he was playing it with more “love than precision,’’ but added he wanted to make sure he played it on the day Campbell died.
