He’s a singer, songwriter, musician and nobody does all three any better than Vince Gill. Next Saturday, the Grand Ole Opry will say a big “thank you” to Vince Gill for his 20 years with the Opry.

If you don’t know back in 1979, Gill was the lead singer for the group “Pure Prairie League”. They recorded three albums, the first of which yielded the Top Ten pop hit “Let Me Love You Tonight”.

In the earlty 80’s, Gill moved to Nashville and in 1989 signed with MCA records and recorded the album “When I Call Your Name.” The title song was the CMA’s song of the year, won a Grammy Award and the album went on to sell over 1 million copies.

Gill’s next album “Pocket Full Of Gold” also sold over a million and hit platinum status.

In all, Gill has sold more than 26 million albums, earned 18 CMA Awards, named the CMA’s “Entertainer of Year” in 1993 and 1994 and won the CMA’s “Male Vocalist” Award five times.

Gill also has won 19 Grammy Awards. He co-hosted the CMA Award show for 12 years straight and he’s a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Congratulations to Vince Gill.
