He and Wife Amy Grant Were Guest Performers at Taylor's Two Tanglewood Shows
Sure, there were fireworks. But it was the crackle of sweet memories that resonated through Vince Gill's mind during the recent Fourth of July weekend as he stood onstage, singing with his musical idol, James Taylor.
Gill and his wife, pop and gospel singer Amy Grant, were Taylor's personally-invited guests at Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, Mass., on July 3-4. Each show drew a sold-out crowd of 18,000 fans.
"It was a magical couple of nights," says Gill, who, despite his reputation for having recorded with virtually everybody else in the universe, had never worked with Taylor before.
"The first night we went out there [I told him], 'I've got to say thank you for letting me cross this off my bucket list. My big sister brought your first record into the house. I'll never forget it. I can remember her sitting there in her room and listening to that record even 40-some years later."http://www.vincegill.com/news.php?title=vi...p;tb=1&pb=1 =
