Boston Pops Orchestra Performs with Special Guest Vince Gill, Today
Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops return to the Koussevitzky Music Shed for a program featuring American country superstar Vince Gill. The Country Music Hall of Famer's career spans three decades and includes countless hit songs, including "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away," "When I Call Your Name," and "Whenever You Come Around."
Second only to the legendary Brooks and Dunn for winning the most Country Music Awards in history, Vince Gill has 26 million album sales under his belt, and has produced such hit songs as "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away," "When I Call Your Name," and "Whenever You Come Around" during a career spanning three decades. Gill, an Oklahoma native, has released 13 studio albums, including his most recent, Guitar Slinger (released on October 25, 2011 via MCA Nashville). In his 30-year solo career, he's earned 18 CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994) and is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five). Gill is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and has received 20 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male country artist. In 2007 he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
