Country Crooner Vince Gill Feels Free as an Independent Artist

Country Crooner Vince Gill Feels Free as an Independent Artist

Vince Gill can do whatever he wants.

For the first time in nearly 30 years, the Country Music Hall of Fame member doesn’t have a record deal. He got signed by a label in 1983 and had been on the MCA Records roster since 1989.

His tenth and final album for the label was last year’s “Guitar Slinger,” recorded in his state-of-the-art home studio. It contained the Grammy-nominated song “Threaten Me With Heaven,” but the single didn’t even break the top 40 on the country chart. Despite the lack of radio airplay, the 55-year-old Gill is optimistic about the future.

Gill is hitting the road in June for a dozen bluegrass shows. It kicks off June 13 in Richmond, Va. Gill has sold more than 26 million albums and is a 20-time Grammy winner. He is known for dozens of country hits including, “One More Last Chance,” “Whenever You Come Around” and “Go Rest High On That Mountain.”
