One of country music's biggest stars pays tribute to the loss of a beloved musician and musical pioneer.

Just hours after legendary singer/songwriter, Glenn Frey, passed away, country superstar Keith Urban posted an incredible tribute to the late artist that will give y'all goosebumps.

Sitting at a lone piano, Urban plays one of Frey's band, The Eagles, biggest hits - "Take It Easy". Along with playing and singing a heart-wrenching tribute to Frey, he pays respects with a message of condolence and support. 

"So deeply saddened tonight to hear of Glenn Frey's passing. Blessings to all his family and the Eagles!

"Take It Easy" was co-written by Frey and released by The Eagles in 1972 as their debut single. Peaking in the Top 20 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, the song spent a total of 11 weeks on the chart that summer and quickly became one of their signature songs. 

Within a short time after its release, the song received rave reviews with a Rolling Stone critic saying:

"'Take It Easy' [was] simply the best sounding rock single to come out so far this year."

The song continued to be a favorite among many Americans, and in 1995, The Eagles' debut single landed on the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame's list of "500 Songs That Shaped Rock And Roll"

With such great success as a song, and blazing a legendary trail across American history, it goes to show why Urban would choose that hit to forever remember the late Frey.

Watch Keith Urban's beautiful and tear-jerking tribute to Glenn Frey in the video below. 

Our prayers and thoughts are with Glenn's family during this difficult time. 


LYRICS BELOW

Well I'm a-runnin' down the road try'n to loosen my load
I've got seven women on my mind
Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me
One says she's a friend of mine
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy

Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
Such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flat-bed Ford
Slowin' down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me
We may lose and we may win, though we will never be here again
So open up I'm climbin' in, so take it easy

Well, I'm a runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load
Got a world of trouble on my mind
Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my cover, she's so hard to find
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy
Come on baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me

Oh, we got it easy
We outghta take it easy
