Vince Gill – Guitar Slinger
One of the true Country superstars to emerge in the 90’s Vince Gill has won more CMA awards than anyone in history and his 14 Grammys have him tied with Chet Atkins for most ever by a country artist. That’s not to say that Gill had an easy road to the top, he struggled for a good part of the 80’s and the early 90’s before becoming the country star he is today.
His new album Guitar Slinger is his first in five years, following in the massive footsteps of his 2006 four-disc magnum opus These Days. It’s more of a traditional album with only 12 tracks (you can’t always put out 43 track albums), and should offer Vince Gill a nice chance to try a different approach than he did on These Days. We’re excited to see what he has in store.
