  Vince Gill

Since the release of his breakthrough album, When I Call Your Name, in 1990, Vince Gill has been a dominant figure in the world of country music, earning 20 Grammy Awards in only 18 years, for his singing and songwriting, and for his many collaborations with the elite of country music, bluegrass, rock and pop.

His 2006 collection These Days is a four-disc, 43-song set showcasing his versatility in country, folk and contemporary styles. His sweet tenor voice has made him a favorite collaborator with the biggest names in American music. He has sung with everyone from Dolly Parton to Barbra Streisand, but his favorite duet partner is his wife, singer Amy Grant. His authoritative guitar picking has made him a sought-after guest artist with six-string heroes such as Mark Knopfler and Eric Clapton.

He is celebrated in the country music world for his dedication to humanitarian causes, playing hundreds of benefit concerts, and sponsoring the Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament. In 2007, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and has become a pillar of the organization, dedicated to the recognition and preservation of America's musical heritage.
