Tim McGraw to perform Glen Campbell song at the Oscars

Tim McGraw

Glen Campbell's I'm Not Gonna Miss You is nominated for an Oscar, and now it's been announced that one of country music's biggest stars will be performing it at the Academy Awards next month. 

Tim McGraw will be performing the emotional song, which is nominated in the category of Best Original Song, during the Sunday, February 22, live ceremony. I'm Not Gonna Miss You appears in the Critics’ Choice nominated documentary "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me," which follows Campbell's final tour and his struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

“I’m honored to be asked to sing this powerful song from one of the true legends of the music industry,” McGraw said of the honor. 

The performance by McGraw will be a dedication to Campbell from the Country community that has rallied behind him and his family during this difficult time. Campbell, who received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012 and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, is no longer able to perform for public audiences due to Alzheimer’s progression. Campbell’s immediate family, who appears alongside him in the film, asked McGraw if he would be willing to honor the legend by performing the song at the upcoming awards.

"We are thrilled that Tim McGraw will be singing I'm Not Gonna Miss You on Glen's behalf at the Academy Awards®. Glen was always a fan of his music and Tim is sure to bring great emotional depth to the performance. We can't wait to hear it live!” Campbell's family said in a release. 

Fans can watch Tim's sure-to-be-emotional performance during the live telecast on February 22 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
