Glen Campbell covered this for his 2017 album Adiós
. His daughter Ashley said to The Boot
of her father's interpretation:
"You know, he loved Jerry Reed's picking version of it. To play it on guitar was always so much fun for him, and it's kind of this way for him to show off his guitar skills because it's such a complicated tune."
Campbell had been wanting to record the tune for many years, but by the time he got down to laying it down for Adios
, the veteran star was stricken with Alzheimer's, so producer Carl Jackson played the guitar. Campbell's wife, Kim said:
"That intro lick was the main thing to me. You have to get the lick right. At that time, I don't think Glen was able to play it, so we relied on Carl to get it. He pretty much nailed that lick. That was the one he always played the most. If you came over and visited us, he'd pick up the guitar and that was the one he would play."
