NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

John Mayer paid tribute to country music legend Glen Campbell during his concert at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday night.

Campbell died at age 81 on Tuesday after battling Alzheimer's disease for several years.

Mayer played Campbell's hit, "Gentle On My Mind," which was recorded in 1967.

The song was written by John Hartford. Campbell heard it on the radio and reportedly fell in love with it.

He recorded his own version, which won two Grammy Awards for Best Country & Western Solo Vocal Performance (Male) and Best Country & Western Recording in 1967.

Below is a video of Campbell performing the song.
