AN EVENING WITH
NOVEMBER 16, 8PM
VINCE GILL is the ambassador of country music. This isn't his official title, of course, but it's the role he occupies whether he's picking bluegrass with his boyhood heroes backstage at the Grand Ole Opry or trading jazz licks with the house band on The Late Show with David Letterman. Gill's prodigious talent, legendary compassion and quick wit have made him the face that country music likes to show the world. In1990 Gill achieved his big breakthrough with "When I Call Your Name," which won the Country Music Association’s Single of the Year award. Since then, he has won 17 more CMA honors, including Entertainer of the Year twice and Song of the Year four times. To date, Gill has earned more CMA trophies than anyone else in history. He has hosted the nationally televised CMA awards show since 1992. He also has 17 Grammy awards, a total that ties him with the late Chet Atkins for the most Grammys won by a country artist. In 1991, he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and remains one of that revered radio show’s most active members. As a recording artist, Gill has racked up sales in excess of 22 million. His high, pure tenor voice and unerring sense of harmony have made him a favorite duet-recording partner for dozens of fellow artists' from Ralph Stanley to Barbra Streisand. In an unmatched outpouring of virtuosity and energy, Vince Gill has created a 4-CD set of 43 new and original songs that MCA Records will release October 17 titled, These Days. The collection is an artistic tour de force that displays Gill's mastery of lyrics and musical styles, ranging from traditional country and bluegrass to jazz and rock.
