|History Of The Item:||Professional acoustic guitar signed by Vince Gill, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn. "Beer joint country music really moves us. We always talk about doing just a stone cold country record. But you start listening to -- and falling for -- all these other kinds of songs... You get swept up by different things. For us, there's always gonna be some hardcore country -- and I think everything else we do is filtered through that, too." - Kix Brooks "From playing in bands and watching the patterns of what people would dance to -- because in Oklahoma and Texas, if they don't dance, you're dead... It's like a honky tonk education: you have to stand and deliver just to get in." - Ronnie Dunn Vince Gill (born April 12, 1957) is an American country music musician and singer. He was born in Norman, Oklahoma and learned to play banjo and guitar before he started high school. After he graduated, he played in a number of bluegrass bands including the Pure Prairie League. He signed with RCA Records in 1983, and scored his first solo hits while on that label. In 1989 he switched to MCA Records where he recorded his breakthrough hit "When I Call Your Name." His 1998 album The Key received great critical acclaim, and is considered by some to be among the best country music albums ever released. His other albums include Next Big Thing (2003) and Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye (2000). Gill hosted the CMA Awards every year from 1992 to 2003. In 2004 he received a Grammy Award for "Best Male Country Vocal Performance". In 1997, he was inducted into the Western Performers Hall of Fame at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Gill married pop singer Amy Grant in March 2000. He was previously married to country singer Janis Gill of Sweethearts of the Rodeo fame, whom he divorced in 1997.|
