The Oscars was filled with unforgettable performances from various artists, including our Country Boy Tim McGraw, who took the stage on Sunday evening, paying tribute to country legend Glen Campbell.
McGraw delivered a stunning and heartfelt version of Campbell’s final song, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” Campbell now suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, was unable to perform the Oscar nominated song. At the family’s request, they invited McGraw to perform the number that evening. Dressed in a sharp tuxedo with his signature cowboy hat, McGraw sang the song on a stool in the center of a simply lit stage.
“The family’s incredible, and the song is really special, and I’m honored to be here to do it,” said McGraw.
“I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” written by Glen Campbell and producer Julian Raymond is included in the sound track of “I’ll Be Me” a documentary which details Campbell’s life and last tour after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The song was awarded as Best Country Song at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
