I'm gonna miss you my friend

<b>Toby Keith</b> performed "Cryin' for Me (Wayman's Song)," the song he wrote for Wayman Tisdale, a former NBA player and jazz bassist who died of cancer in 2009 at the age of only 44. The song featured a beautiful jazz saxophone backing by Dave Koz and was intercut with shots of Tisdale's family sitting in Toby Keith's seats near the front of the auditorium, which he gave to them for the night. It was a wonderful tribute to a great jazz musician. Proceeds from the downloads of the performance from iTunes will go to Stand Up to Cancer.<br>
