Here's my take on the subject . Everything is geared toward the youth of the nation . One reason we don't hear Merle,Loretta etc. on the radio plus the $$$$ factor going to the stations . Vince isn't your die hard down home country artist like Alan Jackson and George Strait (Love them both). He is so versitile that many don't look at him as country ( how could you not ? ) Guess I really don't have the answer .Drives me up the wall that he isn't getting the deserved recognition from the public ( other than his die hard fans (lots) So many people look at his picture (yes I have one at my work station) ask if he is my son . It's unbelievable to me that everyone on the planet doesn't know who Vince Gill is
It is unbelievable that everyone doesn't know who Vince is. One day while we were still in training class, I wore a lanyard I had made that said "Vince Gill Fan" on it. One of my colleagues in class asked me where I got it and I told her I had made it. She then asked me what it said on the lanyard, so I told her and she said she had never heard of him, but she and her husband later on went and looked him up and listened to some of his songs and she said "he's pretty good." She liked his uptempo/more bluesy songs, I don't know what songs they listened to, but my guess is that it was some of the songs from These Days.
