2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival performer Chris Stapleton shook the ground of the Giant Center in Hershey, PA when he performed his rendition of Glen's famous "Rhinestone Cowboy." With just his soulful voice and the aid of his acoustic guitar, Chris performed the song to a packed house, commenting prior that he was singing it "[n]ot because I'm going to do a great job of it, but just because I want to pay my respects to Mr. Campbell."
