VINCE GILL TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW ALBUM “GUITAR SLINGER”
“Guitar Slinger” Vince Gills returns with first album in five years
Column: The new record marks the Oklahoma native’s first release since he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007 and follows his 2006 Grammy-winning box set “These Days.”
“It wasn’t hard for me to see all I was ever gonna be was a Guitar Slinger,” Vince Gill declares in the boogie-woogie title track to his new album.
While it’s true he hasn’t stopped making music since second grade, when he made his public singing debut crooning “The House of the Rising Sun at Oklahoma City’s Cleveland Elementary School, it’s a bit of self-deprecating creative license for Gill to even jokingly declare himself just a “Guitar Slinger.”
