CMT will honor Glen Campbell
CMT will salute the life and legacy of Glen Campbell, the country-pop singer and actor who died Tuesday at 81.
The country music network announced Wednesday that it will premiere “CMT Remembers Glen Campbell” on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. (Pacific). (It will air again on Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 8:30 a.m.)
The special will include footage from Campbell’s final interview with the network, filmed in 2011, as well as Campbell’s performances of hits “Gentle on My Mind” and “Rhinestone Cowboy” and tributes from fellow country stars such as Keith Urban, Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton.
“If you know you got it, live with it the best way you can,” said Campbell of his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in that 2011 interview. “You don’t cry over spilled milk.”
