  3. Leeann – you boring? I don’t think so. CU readers should check out your Favorite Songs by Favorite Artists: Vince Gill from Feb 11, 2008.
    I didn’t discover VG til around ’92 or ’93 but my wife and I did to see him at Westbury in the late 90’s. Maybe he should return to hosting the CMA’s.

  4. Since I unfortunately don’t think I know enough albums to make a list I’ll skip that one other than saying anything with Paul Franklin pedal steel should be Number 1: Bakersfield.


    1. Young Man’s Town

  6. I’ll just go with a song list. I could put any number of songs at the #5 spot since Vince has so many great songs.

    1. Go Rest High On That Mountain
    2. Pocket Full Of Gold
    3. When I Call Your Name
    4. I Still Believe In You
    5. Whenever You Come Around

  7. Putting together a list of my favorite VG albums is tough because in with the exception of the fabulous High Lonesome Sound I don’t think his albums hang together particularly well….always way too much throwaway filler on them.

    Here are my song picks:

    1) High Lonesome Sound
    2) Go Rest High On That Mountain
    3) Worlds Apart
    4) Tryin’ To Get Overy You
    5) Feels Like Love

    1) The River…with Chely Wright
    2) Go Rest High…with Patty Loveless
    3) Red…with Taylor Swift & Alison Krauss – Live at CMAs
    4) The Heart Won’t Lie…with Reba (technically a duet)
    5) What You Don’t Say (with LeAnn Rimes – also a duet)

  8. I think I Still Believe In You and possibly – possibly – When Love Finds You are listenable as albums but honestly I find his LPs a bit too much to stomach. And his 4-disc project These Days….ugh! I don’t know what it is – he’s a fabulous guitar player and a distinctive singer but I just don’t think he makes good albums…

    Out of interest did you like “Guitar Slinger”?

  9. I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree, especially since When Love Finds You is one of my least favorite Gill albums (though I like it) and These Days is my very favorite album(s). Yes, I like Guitar Slinger quite a bit.
