The show will be hosted by CMT's Cody Alan and Katie Cook, and it will feature some of the best moments from The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, a series that ran on CBS from 1969-1972, with appearances from Johnny Cash, John Wayne, Carol Burnett, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and others.

“If you know you got it, live with it the best way you can,” Campbell says in his final sit-down with CMT in 2011, in which he discussed his Alzheimer's diagnosis; the singer passed away at age 81 on Tuesday (Aug. 8) after a long battle with the disease. “You don’t cry over spilled milk.”
