Beloved by fans for wringing every drop of emotion out of a ballad, Vince Gill’s best songs are among country music’s finest moments.
Vince Gill’s talent was immediately obvious to peers like Rodney Crowell, Guy Clark, Rosanne Cash, and Emmylou Harris – he played alongside all of them before (and after) he hit the big time in the late 80s. It took audiences a little longer to catch on to his weightless tenor with its almost R&B-ready elasticity. When they did, however, he quickly went from your favorite artist’s favorite back-up singer and guitarist to not just country superstar, but part of the genre’s increasing pop crossover – all while garnering critical acclaim and more Grammy awards than any other country artist besides his frequent collaborator Alison Krauss.
Respected for his technical music and beloved by fans for his ability to wring every drop of emotion out of a ballad, Gill has spent decades refining and retooling his particular brand of neotraditional country.
