Vince Gill was born in 1957 and was surrounded by music from an early age. After high school, he joined the Bluegrass Alliance and Boone Creek. In 1979, he auditioned for Pure Prairie League and recorded three successful albums. In 1989, he released When I Call Your Name, which won Best Country Song at the 1990 Grammy Awards. He has won dozens of Grammy and CMA awards and is currently playing with The Time Jumpers.
Vince Gill's favorite guitar is a 1953 Fender, which he purchased over 30 years ago. He also plays many other axes, including a Stratocaster, Gibson Les Paul, and Martin and Duesenberg. He believes sound comes from the player, not the instrument, and that there is no right or wrong way to play the guitar.
Gill returned to the stage in 2022 and will tour the U.S. with the Eagles in 2023. He recently received several awards and honors, including his 22nd Grammy and induction into the Musicians Hall of Fame.
