Vince Gill Kicks off Hall of Fame Residency

Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill opened his run as the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s 2009 Artist-in-Residence last night (2/3). Treating the intimate Ford Theater audience to an acoustic set, Gill accepted requests and ran through numerous hits such as “Go Rest High On That Mountain,” “Liza Jane,” and “When I Call Your Name,” as well as newer songs like his Leslie Satcher co-write “Bread And Water,” and “Buttermilk John,” penned for the late session musician John Hughey.

Gill was joined onstage by bandmates Mike Bub, Billy Thomas and Pete Wasner, as well as guests Danny Flowers performing “Tulsa Time,” and The Statler Brothers’ Jimmy Fortune singing “Elizabeth.” The sold out residency continues on February 17 and 24.
