COUNTRY MUSIC RENAISSANCE MAN VINCE GILL ROCKS THE BIG INTERVIEW, IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE PREMIERING NEXT TUESDAY, APRIL 21, AT 8pE ON AXS TV
THE BIG INTERVIEW goes Country, as Dan Rather sits down with multi-talented singer, songwriter, and 20-time GRAMMY® winner Vince Gill in an all-new episode on Tuesday, April 21, at 8pE.
Vince Gill’s introduction to music began at an early age, thanks in large part to the encouragement of his lawyer father who played in a Country music band. Under his father’s guidance, Gill learned to play a wide variety of instruments, including the guitar and banjo. As a teenager, Gill joined up with several different bluegrass bands, starting with The Bluegrass Revue in the late ‘70s, leading to a gig as the road guitarist in fellow Country music icon Rodney Crowell’s band The Cherry Bombs. Gill skyrocketed to success in 1979 when he burst onto the national scene as a member of the legendary Country rock quartet Pure Prairie League, providing lead vocals on the band’s hit song, “Let Me Love You Tonight.”
Since then, he has forged an unprecedented legacy selling over 26 million albums and 40 chart-topping singles, and collaborating with some of the biggest names in music including Reba McEntire, Dire Straits, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Tyler, Chris Daughtry, and pop superstar Kelly Clarkson. With over three decades of experience, Gill’s catalogue has been lauded by both fans and critics alike, as the celebrated musician has earned 18 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards, 20 GRAMMYS, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Gill currently resides in Tennessee, and has been married to best-selling Christian artist Amy Grant since 2000.
