Watch Tim McGraw Pay Tribute to Lynn Anderson

In a new video, Tim McGraw pauses to remember the legacy of country star Lynn Anderson.

Before he walked on stage for his Shotgun Rider Tour‘s stop in Cleveland on Aug. 1, McGraw sat down with his band for a quick warm-up session. With a huge smile on his face, he begins to sing Anderson’s most recognizable hit, “(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden.” It’s a sweet and heartfelt way to recognize the passing of the multi-award-winning artist who was one of the most successful country singers of the 1970s. Anderson passed away on July 30 after suffering a heart attack. She had been hospitalized at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville for a case of pneumonia that developed after a recent trip to Italy.

This short teaser video was posted to the artist’s official Facebook page, but McGraw fans can find a longer version on his official website. McGraw will release a new single, “Top of the World,” later this week.

Lynn Anderson’s funeral services will be held at Woodlawn-Roesch-Patton in Nashville on Aug. 5, and will be open to the public.
