Country music star Vince Gill will perform at 8 p.m. March 23 at Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen, Minn. The show has already has sold out, according to Gill’s people.

As a performer, musician and songwriter, Oklahoma-native Gill is a cornerstone of the country music industry with strong bluegrass and gospel roots. With his neotraditional voice and true-to-life songwriting, Gill has a way of making fans across generational lines.

His many chart-topping hits include “I Still Believe in You,” “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away,” “The Heart Won’t Lie” (with Reba McEntire), “One More Last Chance,” and “Tryin’ to Get Over You.”

One of his biggest and most admired hits was “Go Rest High On That Mountain,” a musical eulogy released in August 1995. Gill began writing the song after the death of country singer Keith Whitley and finished it after the 1993 death of his brother. Ricky Skaggs and Patty Loveless sang background vocals on the record, which won CMA Song of the Year and received Grammys for Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song.

Gill, 54, plays the guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin, dobro and fiddle. He played in popular local bluegrass bands through his early 20s in Oklahoma, Kentucky and Los Angeles, and eventually moved his young family to Nashville, Tenn.

As Gill performed as a solo artist, he continued to write music for other artists and frequently worked as a session guitarist. After another second record deal with MCA Records in 1989, Gill worked as a producer to release his album “When I Call Your Name.” The popular title track propelled Gill from a successful musician to a county music star and earned him a Grammy Award and Country Music Association Award. It wasn’t long before the album went platinum that Gill became a household name.

With more than 26 million records sold, 18 CMA Awards, 19 Grammy Awards, numerous chart-topping hits and an induction into the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame, Gill’s career stands out among country music artists.
