CMT pays homage to the life and legacy of music icon Glen Campbell in a 30-minute special, “CMT Remembers Glen Campbell” premiering Thursday, August 10 at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT (encores Friday at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT).

Hosted by CMT’s Cody Alan and Katie Cook, the news special includes tributes from Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Reba, rare archival photos, interview and performances, as well as some of the best moments from “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” featuring Johnny Cash, John Wayne, Carol Burnett, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and more.

In his final touching sit-down interview with CMT in 2011, Campbell and his wife Kim reflected on his life and his Alzheimer’s diagnosis:

If you know you got it, live with it the best way you can,” remarked Campbell. “You don’t cry over spilled milk.” His sense of humor remained through it all: “I really like the situation I’m in because if I make a mistake now, they expect it,” he joked.
