Vince Gill To Be Honored by Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood + More

Vince Gill has had one of the most successful careers in country music, with a career that has spanned more than 40 years. Now, the Country Music Hall of Fame member will be honored in musical tribute, with a TV special, CMT Giants: Vince Gill. The show will premiere on CMT on Friday, September 16, at 9:00 PM ET.

More than a dozen artists will perform for CMT Giants: Vince Gill, including Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Sting, Chris Stapleton, Luke Combs, Maren Morris and more.

“From his timeless song catalog, numerous awards and unmatched musicianship, to the respect and camaraderie cultivated among his fellow musicians, and of course, his signature sense of humor, we can all agree Vince is a true titan in country music,”  Margaret Comeaux, CMT’s Senior Vice President of Production, Music & Events, says. “He is a true ‘artist’s artist’ who has touched fans worldwide with his music and songwriting, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bestow him with our most esteemed CMT Giants distinction.”

Gill kicked off the first of his four-night residency at the Ryman Auditorium on Thursday, August 4. The singer sang through many of his biggest hits, including “When I Call Your Name,” “I Still Believe in You,” “Look At Us” and more. He also used his time to update fans on his wife, Amy Grant, after she was injured in a bike accident last week.

“She was unconscious for about ten or 15 minutes. I don’t think they talked about that too much, but that was scary,” Gill revealed, interjecting his humor into the situation.

“At this point, a week and a day after her wreck, I’ve got her believing that I’ve won some gold medals, and I produced the Beatles. I was right about the curtains,” he added with a laugh.

Other artists performing for CMT Giants: Vince Gill include Emmylou Harris, Cody Johnson, Ricky Skaggs and Rodney Crowell, with more artists expected to perform. The 90-minute special will mark the first televised performance from the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Nashville’s Belmont University.

Gill has plenty of dates on the calendar for the remainder of 2022, including returning to the Ryman Auditorium for his Christmas at the Ryman residency with Grant. Find all of his upcoming tour dates at
