As a guitarist (a crappy one), I tend to think of Vince’s guitar picking skills before his singing and songwriting, but make no mistake, the man is a triple threat, a country music legend.
And rightly so, CMT will be honoring the country music star with the latest installment in their CMT Giants series.
Cast members 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 in attendance as special guests sharing stories and memories with the amazing Vince Gill.
Commenting on the upcoming special, Margaret Comeaux, CMT’s Senior Vice President of Production, Music & Events said:
“From his timeless catalog of songs, numerous accolades and unparalleled musicianship, to the respect and camaraderie nurtured among his fellow musicians, and of course his signature sense of humor, we all agree vince is a true titan of 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 present him with our esteemed CMT Giants award.”
