There hasn’t been a warmer, more passionate and romantic voice in country music than Vince Gill’s since – well, arguably never. But his talent and charm don’t end with his voice; Gill is the complete artist. He’s a master guitarist, and first-rate songwriter whose compositions include such standards as “Look at Us,” “Never Knew Lonely,” “I Still Believe in You” and “Go Rest High on That Mountain,” a eulogy for his friend and fellow country star, Keith Whitley. With 20 Grammy awards and five CMA Male Vocalist awards, Gill is one of the most popular and respected of Nashville’s special breed. On Saturday, Gill brings his voice, his guitar and his songs to the Durham Performing Arts Center. For more information, see dpacnc.com.
