COUNTRY WEEKLY REVIEWS VINCE GILL’S NEW ALBUM ‘GUITAR SLINGER’

Jessica Nicholson – Country Weekly 4 STARS

Album title aside, one shouldn’t expect self-absorbed guitar soloing or extended axe-hashing on Vince’s latest release. In a manner reminiscent of Chet Atkins, Vince’s subtle fretwork caters to the needs of each song, as in the tender “Who Wouldn’t Fall in Love With You.”

A theme of morality runs throughout the album, from “If I Die” to the murder ballad “Billy Paul.” “Buttermilk John” is a traditional-styled country tribute to Vince’s late steel guitar player, John Hughey. In “Bread and Water,” a song partially inspired by Vince’s late brother, Bob, understated guitar and piano melodies enrich the story of a homeless man’s redemption.

On his current single, “Threaten Me With Heaven” (co-written by wife Amy Grant), and “Tell Me Fool,” Vince’s riffing channels gospel and soul, presenting some of his most emotional guitar work to date on “Threaten.” Wife Amy guests on “True Love,” which she also co-wrote.

Vince’s superb musicianship leaves the spotlight on these poignant songs.
