Watch Tim McGraw, Charlie Worsham Cover Glen Campbell’s ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’
The backdrop for McGraw and Worsham’s performance isn’t glamorous: an arena dressing room filled with road cases. Throughout the song, Worsham keeps the melody on guitar; McGraw takes the lead on the first verse and chorus, with Worsham adding harmonies, while Worsham leads the second verse and chorus. McGraw is clearly a fan, as he nods on approvingly.
“Geeze, that’s good!” McGraw says at the end of the duet, joking, “If I could sing like that, I would have a career.”
Written by Larry Weiss, “Rhinestone Cowboy” was made famous by Campbell in the mid-1970s. Released as a single in May of 1975, the song peaked at No. 1 on both the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Hot 100 charts. “Rhinestone Cowboy” is the title track of Campbell’s 1975 album.
McGraw and wife Faith Hill‘s Soul2Soul Tour began in April; it is scheduled to run through late October. Their opening acts have varied throughout the trek; Worsham played with the couple on June 22-24, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
McGraw and Hill are working on a collaborative album, to be released via Sony later this year; their current single is “Speak to a Girl.” Worsham, meanwhile, recently released his sophomore album, Beginning of Things, in April.
