Nicks dedicated “Landslide” to Eagles singer Glenn Frey, who passed away last year, and to his son Deacon, who along with country star Vince Gill took his father’s place in the Eagles’ lineup during their performance at Classic West the previous evening.

“I wanted to dedicate that song to Glenn Frey, who was my friend. And I also wanted to dedicate it to his son, for stepping in and doing such an amazing job last night. [With] so much pressure, he just did it so beautifully, his daddy would be so proud of him. I didn’t do it before I sang, because I just would have started to cry.”
