In December, Miranda Lambert put together an emotional rendition of “Desperado” at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors. The Eagles were scheduled to be officially honored, but in light of Glenn Frey’s serious health issues, it was decided to fully honor the iconic band next year.

Through music, Glenn Frey achieves immortality.
