Watch Toby Keith Honor Glen Campbell With Performance of “Wichita Lineman” at New York Concert

Glen Campbell’s impact on country music and many of today’s artists cannot be overstated. Since the news of Glen’s passing broke on Aug. 8, there has been an outpouring of tributes and remembrances from the country community.

During his concert on Aug. 9 at the Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn, N.Y., Toby Keith paid tribute to Glen by performing “Wichita Lineman,” a tune Glen took to the top of the country charts in 1968 (it also reached No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100).

“A great American country icon passed away . . . the great Glen Campbell passed away, and we’re gonna pay homage to him,” said Toby to the audience as he kicked off the tune and a video montage began playing in the background.
