Popular American country music singer Vince Gill joined yet another famous American country music group on the Grand Ole Opry stage to perform a song.
Vince is known for his incredible voice, and this was just another good day on stage, but this time he sang “Why Me Lord” together with the group. The performance was electrifying to a point it will go in history as one of the best live performances despite going against the organizers’ rules.
On completing the performance, the audience was moved, and all of them in unison stood up to give Vince a round of applause for his presentation. Everyone in the room seemed to have been touched by his voice and forgot about the broken rules after singing about Jesus.
Vince Gill, who just turned 62 and hails from Oklahoma, started his career in country music as part of a band known as Pure Prairie League. He later veered off to pursue personal interests as a solo artist in the ’80s and then pursued a career in gospel country music.
His voice, however, didn’t change despite changing the identity of his music. He earned wide recognition that led to him winning various accolades including a Grammy Awards, eighteen Country Music Association Awards and also earned a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
It looks like the country music prowess runs in the blood as Vince revealed that his father, a lawyer by profession also played country music part-time. At such a young age, Vince learned how to play various musical instruments courtesy of his father.
His father spotted the talent in Gill and helped him nurture his voice into undeniably one of the best in the world.
Vince Gill has had bad days too. He lost a dearly loved half-brother in a car accident that took him time to recover from the loss. Part of his grieving process included producing a song to his brother’s name, Bob Coen. His marriage life hasn’t been a walk in the park with a failed marriage to Janis Oliver. Gill later remarried shortly.
Fast forward to when Vince Gill was asked to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Contrary to his wishes, the organizers had earlier on asked him not to sing about Jesus. However, Vince Gill joined the band, Little Big Town and together they shook grounds performing an electrifying religious song that the audience couldn’t help but give in.
Vince Gill went against the event organizer’s wishes and chose to stand by his faith. He demonstrated unwavering confidence in what he firmly believes as right and that shouldn’t be offensive to anyone.
