Vince Gill’s “Threaten Me With Heaven” Receives Grammy Nomination for Best Country Song

Categories:News

Vince Gill’s “Threaten Me With Heaven” has received a Grammy nomination in the category of Best Country Song.

This is the 41st career Grammy nomination for Gill, who has won 20 Grammys.

He co-wrote “Threaten Me With Heaven” with his wife, Amy Grant, Dillon O’Brian and Will Owsley. Gill is appreciative of the nomination, which was announced on Thursday night, especially because it serves as a lasting tribute to Owsley, who took his own life since the song was recorded for Gill’s new album, Guitar Slinger.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled for my late friend Will,” Gill says. “This would have meant the world to him.”

Gill says the song has a profound impact on him because of Owsley’s death. “In my lifetime, ‘Go Rest High On That Mountain” has been the song that helped a lot of people through their grief. I think this one will in turn hopefully do the same thing. It’s a powerful, powerful song.”

Gill and Grant will begin their popular Christmas tour, The Twelve Days of Christmas – Amy Grant & Vince Gill on Dec. 7 in Baltimore, MD.

    Three years ago I lost my husband of fortyfive years to a heart attack. He was a devoted christian and often spoke of heaven. Your song Threaten Me With Heaven is so him and sums up our life together and his thoughts. Thankyou…..I have been a fan for years. In Service For Him……GM
