Vince Gill has carved an historic career out of recording emotionally-charged songs like 'Go Rest High on That Mountain' and 'Never Knew Lonely.' But while other stars might lean toward more positive, up-tempo tunes, the 54-year-old admits he actually prefers the opposite.
"I like the blue side," the Oklahoma native says (quote via GAC). "I've always liked the sad side of music ... the sadder the better. I grew up and played a lot of bluegrass music, and the songs were somewhat morbid in a sense. Somebody's going to die or something bad is going to happen. There was a great songwriter, Townes Van Zandt. He had my favorite quote of all time. He says 'there's really only two kinds of music: there's the blues and Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.'"http://www.vincegill.com/news.php?title=vi...p;tb=1&pb=1 =
