Vince Gill Tickets for Sale

Vince Gill paid nearly a decade and a half of dues en route to becoming one of the most popular country stars of the '90s. Starting out as a bluegrass singer and multi-instrumentalist, he initially made his name with country-rockers Pure Prairie League, and spent the '80s as part of country's new traditionalist wing before finding massive success as a contemporary country hit maker. Gill had strong mainstream appeal, yet enough songwriting chops and grounding in tradition that he could maintain his artistic credibility without being branded a crossover-happy hack. That balance made him the kind of performer that awards ceremonies can feel good about honoring, and honor him they did -- Gill has won more CMA awards than any performer in history, and his 14 Grammy's tie him with Chet Atkins for the most ever by a country artist.

Vince Gill (born April 12, 1957) is an American country music singer. He was born in Norman, Oklahoma and learned to play banjo and guitar before he started high school. After he graduated, he played in a number of bluegrass bands including the Pure Prairie League.

A move to Nashville in 1984 coincided with Gill's recording contract after Brown, an RCA executive, signed him to the label. Gill's output at RCA resulted in three Top 10 singles -- "If It Weren't for Him" (with Rosanne Cash), "Oklahoma Borderline" and "Cinderella." However, Gill's early singles failed to propel him to immediate stardom. During the next five years, Gill spent most of his time backing others in the studio or touring with Emmylou Harris.
After leaving the RCA roster, Gill moved to MCA, where Brown was then a producer and label executive. After marginal success at RCA, Gill's 1989 debut album for MCA, When I Call Your Name, sold 1 million copies. His breakthrough at radio came with the title track that featured Patty Loveless on guest vocals. It went on to win single of the year honors at the CMA Awards. Gill's subsequent albums in the ‘90s were huge hits, too, providing a string of No. 1 singles including "I Still Believe in You," "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away," "The Heart Won't Lie" (with Reba McEntire), "One More Last Chance" and "Tryin' to Get Over You." With 18 CMA Awards, Gill stands as one of the most successful artists in the history of country music.

His 1998 album The Key received great critical acclaim, and is considered by some to be among the best country music albums ever released. His other albums include Next Big Thing (2003) and Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye (2000).

In addition to his work as a singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Gill has also been one of country music's primary ambassadors as host of the nationally televised CMA Awards. Gill first co-hosted the CMA Awards in 1992 with Reba McEntire and later evolved into the show's sole host. With a quick wit and affable demeanor, he helped deliver impressive ratings for CBS-TV. He hosted the CMA Awards every year from 1992 to 2003. In 2004 he received a Grammy Award for "Best male country vocal performance".
