[Watch] John Mayer Pays Tribute to Glen Campbell During Nashville Tour Stop with “Gentle On My Mind”


The room fell silent after John Mayer said, “whether I play it right or wrong, I’d rather have played it” as he launched into an acoustic, melodic cover of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle On My Mind.”

Mayer was playing Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena as a part of his The Search For Everything Tour. He visited the Bobby Bones Show in the morning and discussed everything from how his brain works to sad song lyrics to music genres.

Campbell passed away on August 8, 2017 after a long, hard fought battle with Alzheimer’s.
