Vince Gill's 2011 album Guitar Slinger features a tribute to steel guitar virtuoso John Hughey -- a member of Gill's band for nearly 20 years and a dear friend of the artist's -- who passed away in 2007. In "Buttermilk John," Gill salutes the renowned musician whose real-life love story ... well, makes for the perfect country song. Below, Gill explains the inspiration for the tune.
Twenty-three years ago today (Sept. 5, 1992), after releasing 19 Top 40 singles, Vince Gill finally scored his first No. 1 hit. The song, "I Still Believe in You," was the debut single and title track from his sixth studio album.
The title track of Ashely Monroe's new The Blade album is a duet with Miranda Lambert, so when she didn't appear during Monroe's performance of the song at the Basement in Nashville on Wednesday night (July 22), it seemed unlikely the two friends would share the stage at all that night.
The only other person to receive this award is the legendary Johnny Cash. That makes this a HUGE deal, and congrats to Vince Gill. This was the highligh of the CMA Awards last night. Here it is in case you missed it.
Vince Gill and Amy Grant have been dealing with her father's increasing dementia, which hasn't been easy. Thankfully, Grant is able to lean on her husband for support and love during such a difficult time.
