VINCE GILL AT ‘SONGS FROM THE SILVERSCREEN’

Vince Gill raised country music’s banner high at the Revlon Concert for the Rainforest Tuesday, April 3, at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in New York.

In a program titled “Songs of the Silver Screen,” Gill performed his own distinctive renditions of Don Gibson’s “I Can’t Stop Loving You” and Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman” and joined actress/singer Rita Wilson for a duet journey through the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream.”  (Gill also sings on “Faithless Love” a track on Wilson’s album, AM/FM, due out May 8.)

In addition to Gill and Wilson, the high-voltage concert featured  performances  by Sting, Elton John, James Taylor, Meryl Streep, Rosanne Cash, Bruno Mars, Jennifer Hudson, Esperanza Spalding and Bryn Terfel.  Former president Bill Clinton appeared as a special guest.

The entire cast encored with the Rolling Stones’ “You  Can’t Always Get What You Want.”  That lyrical admonition did not apply to sold-out crowd, of course, which got exactly what it wanted.

Gill is currently touring in support of his album Guitar Slinger.
