Today marks the release of Vince Gill’s “Threaten Me With Heaven,” a powerful song that is the debut single from Guitar Slinger, which is due Oct. 24 and is his first new album in five years.
Vince wrote or co-wrote every song on the album, including “Threaten Me With Heaven,” which he created with his wife Amy Grant, Dillon O’Brian and Will Owsley, who died last year.
“‘Threaten Me With Heaven’ is a song that I was fortunate to get to be a part of,” he says. “My wife Amy, Dillon O’Brian and Will Owsley were at our home working on that song. I think I had been playing golf or something. I walked into the house and they said, ‘Hey, we’re kind of stuck.’ I’m glad I came home because I got to sit down and help finish a great idea.
