Vince Gill country music

Ol’ Vince…

As a guitar player (a shitty one), I tend to think of Vince’s guitar pickin’ skills ahead of his singing and songwriting, but make no mistake, the man is a triple threat, a country music legend.

And rightfully so, CMT will honoring the country music star with the latest installment of their CMT Giants series.

Performers include Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Cody Johnson, Luke Combs, Maren Morris and Ricky Skaggs, with more to be announced.

Emmylou Harris, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Rodney Crowell, Sting, and more will also be on hand as special guests, sharing stories and memories with the great Vince Gill.

Margaret Comeaux, CMT’s Senior Vice President of Production, Music & Events, weighed in on the upcoming special:

“From his timeless song catalog, numerous awards and unmatched musicianship, to the respect and camaraderie cultivated among his fellow musicians, and of course, his signature sense of humor, we can all agree Vince is a true titan in country music.

He is a true ‘artist’s artist’ who has touched fans worldwide with his music and songwriting, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bestow him with our most esteemed ‘CMT Giants’ distinction.”
