Vince Gill Joins The Hollywood Walk Of Fame [VIDEO]
What does Vince Gill have in common with Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, David Foster, Jack Nicholson, Nicholas Cage and the rock-super-group Heart? Vince Gill will get his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as one of the 2012 inductees. Vince Gill moved to Los Angeles when he was 19 years old, and has had a real love for the city.
Vince’s first show ever in Los Angeles was at the Troubadour. He was in the group Sundance a bluegrass band lead by Byron Berline who opened for Guy Clark. As fate would have it, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and Guy Clark were all there at the show, and he credits them “ALL” for helping him mold his future.
Fast forward to current day, Vince Gill still works as hard and as much as he used to. Gill is getting ready to release his new album “Guitar Slinger,” due out by mid-fall 2011. He continues to perform bluegrass and claims he will never forget his roots.
Vince told Music Row magazine, “When I lived out there, I was such a young person that I hadn’t really accomplished much of anything. So even the thought of one day having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was preposterous. It was silly. It wasn’t even in the realm of my thinking.”
Vince still performs regularly on the Grand Ole Opry, he is kicking off the Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman concert series. For more information check out the Ryman’s website.
