Vince Gill will celebrate his 25th year as a member of the Grand Ole Opry with two shows on Saturday, Aug. 13. Gill was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on Aug. 10, 1991. Gill announced the upcoming shows during a live Facebook chat at Nashville’s Ernest Tubb Record Shop with Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs.

“We’re excited both about Vince’s recording coming out next month and about celebrating his entire Opry career to date later this year,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher. “We’ve had a preview of some of Vince’s new music at the Opry over the past few months, and it has been a reminder of why he has been an award-winning artist and a favorite of fans and fellow artists alike for more than a quarter century.”

Gill has sold more than 26 million albums and has earned the most Grammy honors for a male country artist.

Gill’s 18th album, Down To My Last Bad Habit, will release Feb. 12 on MCA Records Nashville. On Feb. 17, Gill will reunite with Lyle Lovett for a 13-city Songs and Stories tour.
