Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, the Nashville Predators, the Nashville hospitality industry and MCA Nashville were among those honoring Vince Gill today during the kick-off celebration of Vince Gill Week at the Visitor Center in Bridgestone Arena.
Before Gill releases his new album, Guitar Slinger, on Oct. 24, MCA Nashville and city leaders wanted to take a moment to celebrate his achievements and thank him for his dedication and generosity to Music City.
“I’m grateful that people are saying, ‘Well done,’” Gill says.
Mayor Dean presented a proclamation honoring Gill ‘s “extraordinary talent and contributions” and recognizing Vince Gill Week. He also announced that Gill will serve as grand marshal of the 59th annual Nashville Christmas Parade, which will be held Dec. 2 and starts at Public Square Plaza.
