A Special Evening with Vince Gill
(Moncton, NB) – Country Music Hall of Famer and multi-Grammy award winner, Vince Gill returns to Moncton for two shows at Casino New Brunswick’s Event Centre, performing Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24 at 8 p.m.
Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He has earned 18 Country Music Awards (CMA), including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994. He is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five), and is currently second only to Brooks and Dunn for accumulating the most CMA Awards in history.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry, Gill has received 20 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male Country artist. An avid golfer, he helped create the annual Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament (“The Vinny”) in 1993 in order to help support junior golf programs throughout Tennessee. Besides being known for his talent as a performer, musician and songwriter, Gill is regarded as one of Country Music’s best-known humanitarians, participating in hundreds of charitable events throughout his career.
In August of 2007, the Country Music Association inducted Gill as the newest members of the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame.
“Vince Gill is quite simply a living prism refracting all that is good in country music,” said Kyle Young/Country Music Foundation on Vince’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Gill married singer Amy Grant in 2000, and released Let’s Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye that same year. The album featured the hit “Feels Like Love.” In 2006, Gill released These Days, a groundbreaking, four-CD set featuring 43 new recordings of diverse musical stylings. Each album in the set explored a different musical mood – traditional Country; ballads; contemporary, up-tempo; and acoustic/bluegrass music. The set features a variety of guest performers, including John Anderson, Guy Clark, Sheryl Crow, Phil Everly, daughter Jenny Gill, wife Amy Grant, Emmylou Harris, Diana Krall, Michael McDonald, Bonnie Raitt, Leann Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Lee Ann Womack, and Trisha Yearwood.
Gill is currently promoting his latest CD, The Time Jumpers.
