Vince Gill has done it again with his induction into the Musician's Hall of Fame, as a member of their seventh class.
He was inducted along with Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; Don McLean, the “American Pie” songsmith; comedic country singer, Ray Stevens; producer, Jim Guercio; and recording engineer, George Massenberg. “The friendships I’ve made out of this music is unbelievable” explained Gill while he was onstage.
The Musician’s Hall of Fame and Museum was established in Nashville sixteen years ago. The museum is a beautiful tribute to the country, R&B, and rock classics. This was the hall’s first induction in three years, and it was also a tribute to their late founder and CEO, Joe Chambers. He passed away in September, and his wife, who took over his position as CEO, explained that Chambers spent most of his time in the hospital planning the event. The night honored him and a beautiful tribute to the passion that he held for the Musician’s Hall of Fame.
Following his induction, Gill performed his song “This Old Guitar and Me”. Before his performance, he explained, "I tried to think of a song that would encapsulate the meaning and the depth of this night. And I came up with this one, because it’s a true story.”
We are excited to see what Vince Gill does next, and we are proud to have him part of our team. To read more about the amazing induction night, click here.
