Nashville superstar and Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill spent his Thursday hanging with former President George H.W. Bush, but that and four margaritas didn't keep Gill from laying down a note-perfect, immaculate 28 song tour de force at the Arena Theater last night.
Opening with a roadhouse-ish version of "One More Last Chance" and immediately jumping into the stone-cold honky-tonk of "Take Your Memory With You," Gill wasted no time showing the crowd that he wasn't fooling around or taking Houston lightly. And there was no doubt that he knew he was in Texas.

One of the BEST Vince concerts I've ever attended, and I have attended many. He was so danged funny!! Backstage was nice. He was so kind to everyone.
I told him that most of the pictures I have taken with him have been blurry. He grabbed his glasses and yanked them off his face and put them behind his back and said, "OH, well let me take my glasses off then!" WHAT A NUT!!!!!! Of course, he was proud of that remark and just giggled! He is so fun!
