Vince Gill recently released his latest album, ‘Guitar Slinger,’ which is the first collection of new tunes from the singer and guitar genius in five long years. Gill recently revealed some reasons as to why fans had to wait so long for new material.
“I had to practice,” Gill tells People of the reason for the long break in music. “This record has really been done for about a year, but I’m forever afraid to let something go. I keep revisiting things … I just want to fix that part right here or re-sing that song.”
Lucky for Gill fans, they won’t have to wait that long between projects any more. In fact, Gill is hinting that the rest of his career will be even more musical than the road that has led him to now.
