Vince Gill rocked back and forth, acoustic guitar across his knee, and beamed as his daughter, Jenny, sang her heart out to a house that has meant so much to him over the years.
On Aug. 13, Jenny sang Vince's classic "If You Ever Have Forever in Mind" at the Grand Ole Opry during an event honoring Gill's 20th anniversary with Nashville's venerable institution.
In the background, Gill quietly mouthed the words, closed his eyes, and thought about "how full circle things have come since I first got to perform there," he said in a phone interview from his Nashville-area home. "It was great to just sit there and be dad for four minutes."
It was when Jenny was 7 years old that Vince got the call from the Opry, asking him to make his debut on the historic stage. He turned them down because he had promised Jenny he'd be at her talent show on the night the Opry asked him to perform.http://www.vincegill.com/news.php?title=op...p;tb=1&pb=1 =
