Jake Owen‘s tribute might have been the most touching as he played an acoustic rendition of “Wichita Lineman,” one of Campbell’s biggest hits.

Owen’s caption will leave you a bit teary eyed as well:

“We lost one of the greatest voices, guitar players and entertainer that our world has ever seen. Glen Campbell. It seems this year has been filled with these moments where we’ve lost people that have enriched our lives with their pure talent. This is a huge loss for country music. Maybe Glen and Merle are picking a tune together right now. If so, I bet my Grandad is right there with a front row ticket. Life is short. Enjoy it while it’s here.”
