Chris Stapleton recently joined the ranks of artists paying their respects to the late, great Glen Campbell, who passed away on Aug. 8. During his show at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pa. on Aug. 10, Stapleton delivered a stirring solo acoustic rendition of Campbell’s 1975 crossover hit “Rhinestone Cowboy.”
As Rolling Stone reported, Stapleton asked the audience to excuse him if he didn’t do the song justice but that he wanted to offer up his own tribute to the country legend. We would say that Chris did the song justice. You can check out fan shot video of Chris Stapleton performing “Rhinestone Cowboy” above.
Stapleton is in the midst of his All-American Road Show tour in support of his latest record From a Room: Vol. 1. Much like Campbell’s own body of work, From a Room: Vol. 1 was a crossover success. The LP rocketed to #1 on the country charts and climbed to #2 on the Billboard 200. Watch Chris Stapleton performing the album’s lead single, “Either Way,” on Charlie Rose below.
