The great Vince Gill just announced that his new album, Okie, will be released on August 23.
Vince wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs on Okie.
To lead things off, Gill also just released a new song, “A Letter To My Mama,” and it’s a tug-at-your-heartstrings kind of song.
“I thought this was going to be a songwriter record, not a concept album,” Gill says. “It wound up being more information than I’d envisioned. A friend sent me an email saying, ‘You could have only written this record after living a 60-year-plus life.’ He said, ‘There’s no struggle in these songs, just truth and your experience.”
