Did anybody look at the Question & Answer Lady in this week's Opry newsletter? She said some great things about Vince:
Keep in mind that the full Opry line-up is finalized only on the Tuesday before that weekend’s shows. And even then, nothing is ever truly final. There’s something magical when someone shows up unannounced. Vince Gill dropped in on the show a couple of months ago, stepping in for Lee Ann Womack, who had to cancel on the day of the show. He threatened to sing “I Hope You Dance” that night, but instead did a couple of his tunes, including the CMA award-winner, “Look At Us.” Matt, I love that man. If I could convince him to do so, I’d have a double ceremony including Vince and me plus you and your future bride. Of course Vince won’t have anything to do with my funny business, as he’s married to the equally wonderful Amy Grant. Grant, by the way, has also surprised the Opry audience recently. She and husband Vinny joined the Opry Square Dancers fro an impromptu gig, then she joined her husband on stage for a “bring on the tissues good” version of “Whenever You Come Around.” (Unfortunately for me, Matt, the only thing coming around in my life lately, Matt is the garbage truck every Friday and the occasional nausea brought on by too-large quantities of tempting treats such as powdered doughnuts, Jelly Bellies, Nips, and Crème Savers.
Thanks for asking,
