Enso String Quartet
With a 2010 Grammy nomination for "Best Chamber Music Performance," the NYC-based Enso String Quartet has quickly become one of the country's most exciting young ensembles. Founded at Yale University in 1999, the quartet earned honors at the Banff International String Quartet and Concert Artists Guild International Competitions.

Founded at Yale University in 1999, the Enso String Quartet has, in a decade and a half, risen to the front rank of string ensembles. Described by Strad magazine as "thrilling," and praised by the Washington Post for its "glorious sonorities," the Enso has won numerous awards, including top prizes at the Concert Artists Guild competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition. In the words of Classical Voice, it is "one of the eminent string quartets of our era." Apart from a busy touring and teaching schedule, the New York-based quartet has made a number of critically acclaimed recordings for the Naxos label. In appraising the Enso's Grammy-nominated album of works by Alberto Ginastera, the reviewer for MusicWeb International declared, "The performances here by the Enso Quartet from America are quite staggeringly brilliant. I don't think I have been so thrilled by the sound of a string quartet in a long time.... If I could give this disc a standing ovation of one...I would!"

The Enso's members all were drawn to the string quartet repertoire because of its richness and diversity, and the ensemble is committed to exploring the four corners of that repertoire. The Enso regularly performs the classics of the string quartet literature, but also champions lesser-known works that deserve to be heard, along with much contemporary music, including works the Enso has commissioned. The ensemble also performs many of its own transcriptions, including arrangements of 16th Century Renaissance music.

"The quartet's ability to present music of three completely different idioms so persuasively puts it in the running for the mantle of Quartet of the Future" (Palm Beach ArtsPaper). World premieres include commissioned works by the esteemed New Zealand composer Dame Gillian Whitehead, and by the American composer Kurt Stallmann. The Enso also gave the world premiere of Joan Tower's Piano Quintet, with the composer at the keyboard.

In addition to their in-demand performances at concert halls around the world, the Enso and its individual members are sought after as instructors. The ensemble gives master classes for the next generation of professional musicians, but also works with enthusiastic amateurs, young and old, and with the autistic, in conjunction with the United Kingdom-based organization Music for Autism. The Enso has been awarded for its work with schoolchildren in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Based in New York City since 2007, the Enso String Quartet was previously in residence at Rice University in Houston, Texas, and at Northern Illinois University, in DeKalb, Illinois.

During the summer of 2013, the ensemble made debut appearances in Brazil, at the Festival Internacional de Inverno de Campos do Jordão, and in Mexico, at the San Miguel de Allende Festival Internacional de Musica de Camera. The 2013-14 season will include debuts at the Kennedy Center, and at Seattle's Town Hall. In 2013, the ensemble continued its artist residency at Interlochen College for Creative Arts, and will return to Rice University's Shepherd School of Music in Houston for a residency in 2014. The Enso's fourth recording for the Naxos label – featuring the quartets of Puccini, Verdi and Richard Strauss – is slated for release in Fall 2014.

The ensemble's name is derived from the Japanese Zen painting of the circle, which represents many things: perfection and imperfection, the moment of chaos that is creation, the emptiness of the void, the endless circle of life, and the fullness of the spirit.

O.A.R. with special guest ALLEN STONE
O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show —including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans.

USA Today has called Allen Stone a "pitch-perfect powerhouse" and The New York Times has likened his socially conscious music to that of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers. But the 25-year-old singer-songwriter from the tiny backwoods town of Chewelah, Washington just sees himself as "a hippie with soul."

O.A.R
Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated "you can't go home again," but don't tell that to the members of O.A.R. On their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration.

"This isn't about us going back to our musical roots per se," says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). "It's about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We'd drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, spend time with our people.  Rockville was the catalyst then, and it's the catalyst now."

For the first time in a while, the band found that visiting their Maryland hometown gave them a sense of peace. For years, they had been pushing themselves to reach new levels of success, searching for their place in the world. Plus, turbulent times within their personal lives had led them to a slightly disconnected state. "I went home to Maryland many times while making this album and based these songs on all the familiar feelings that Rockville gave me," Roberge says. "I tried to focus in on the simple things that always made this band so creative and driven. For everyone in the band, this was a restart. We've been hanging out, enjoying life, letting things go…The whole album is about a reboot."

That sense of renewal is evident on the first single, the deep, yearning "Peace." "As we were writing it, I felt the weight of three years lift off my shoulders," Roberge says. "We wrote it about getting back to that even playing field after you go through turbulent times.  It's about what I see people going through all around me, everyone deserves second, third, fourth chances."

Roberge wrote "Peace"with Blair Daly and Nashville-based producer Nathan Chapman, best known for his work with Taylor Swift, after Roberge introduced himself to Chapman at an event in Los Angeles. The two got along so well that, in addition to "Peace," their writing sessions yielded three other songs: "Favorite Song," "Two Hands Up" and "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." Chapman produced "Favorite Song" and "Two Hands Up," while Gregg Wattenberg, who co-wrote O.A.R.'s No. 1 smash, "Shattered (Turn the Car Around)," produced "Peace." Chapman and Wattenberg shared production duties on "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." With those four tracks serving as the foundation for the album and as a boost to the band's confidence, Roberge produced the rest of the tracks on THE ROCKVILLE LP including a co-production with Jerry DePizzo on "The Element." "We felt like we were on to something with an overwhelming freedom to chase down some more songs," Roberge says.

THE ROCKVILLE LP, which was recorded in Nashville, Bethesda, Md., and Brooklyn, N.Y., features some of O.A.R.'s most diverse, intricate songs to date. Bold horn arrangements weave in and out of several of the tunes, including "Irish Rose" sequel and DePizzo showcase, the jangly, story song, "Caroline the Wrecking Ball," as well as the ambitious "The Architect," a song adored by longtime fans, but one O.A.R. had never committed to an album before.

Pure joy and light-heartedness infuse album opener, the spiky infectious anthem, "Two Hands Up," and the irrepressible reggae-tinged "Favorite Song" in which Roberge cheerfully references dozens of song titles. "We were driving down roads in Nashville and Maryland feeling nostalgic harkening back to the days of endlessly flipping through the radio dial singing loudly to your favorite songs.  This song is an ode to the hit, to recognize the pure joy you can get from a song and some rolled down windows."

O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show —including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. With each studio album, the band has endeavored to achieve that sense of immediacy. On THE ROCKVILLE LP, "it comes the closest," Roberge says. "Every live band I know will always want nothing more than to carry their live performance onto the album.  It's an elusive thing to capture, so I'll never say we nailed it," Roberge says. "But I can guarantee we put that same live show energy and passion into each minute of THE ROCKVILLE LP and we can only hope the audience feels that."

Allen Stone
While the buzz was building in early 2014 about the Internet of Things, Allen Stone was recording in his rustic Washington State cabin and extolling the virtues of an old-fangled kind of connection – the one that exists between people playing music together. The 26-year-old soul singer, praised as a "pitch-perfect powerhouse" by USA Today, was working on the follow-up to his self-titled breakthrough album, which he released digitally on his own stickystones label in late 2011. Sure, he acknowledges, he could have written and recorded his new set of songs alone on a laptop – but that wouldn't have been nearly as much fun.

"I'm a social person and, to me, the greatest energy that you can cultivate is a collaborative energy. It feels better when you've got somebody to bounce ideas off of," explains Stone.

While he's not keen on creating music with computers, Stone nevertheless considers technology to be an enormous blessing. In fact, he might have never met his co-producer, Swedish musician Magnus Tingsek, if he hadn't been digging around online for new music.

"I was like his number one fan for three years," recalls Allen. At that point, things started exploding for Stone. His self-titled album shot into the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and entered the Top 5 of iTunes' R&B/Soul charts shortly after its release. Soon the unsigned artist was appearing on shows like "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "Live from Daryl's House." NPR's Ann Powers hailed the album as "meant for those of us who like our R&B slightly unkempt and exceedingly feelingful" and Forbes ran a feature focusing on his remarkable success as an independent artist. The New York Times' Jon Pareles praised Stone's live show, noting, "his music reached back four decades to the late 1960s and early '70s, when songwriters like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers brought introspection and social commentary to soul music."

A partnership with indie label ATO Records, which later released the album physically, opened new doors. Stone was voted one of mtvU's "Freshman 5" and named a VH1' "You Oughta Know" artist. He opened for Al Green and Dave Matthews and performed on "Late Show with David Letterman," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

With an 85-date headline tour planned and two out of three openers selected, Stone asked his manager, "Why don't we see if Tingsek will come?" Tingsek, who had never toured outside of Scandinavia, agreed and the two became good friends as they traveled across North America and throughout Europe.

My number one joy is playing live, so when I write records I really just think of what song I could write that would be really fun to play live," says Stone. "Basically my job is to throw a party for people every night when we're on tour."

The non-stop pace of touring and promotional appearances makes it tempting to "set the cruise control a little too high," Allen notes, which can take its toll over time. After doing nearly 600 shows in two years, Stone was ready to turn from touring to recording. He moved from Seattle back to his hometown of Chewelah, WA – population 2,606.

"To find the balance I was looking for, I needed to move out to the middle of nowhere – where I have no distractions whatsoever," he says.

As he considered who he might like to collaborate with, Tingsek came to mind. Stone flew to Malmö, Sweden in November of 2013 and, after just a day in the studio with Tingsek, he knew it was the right pairing.

"Magnus is like Prince – he plays everything! He's like one of those Swiss Army knife musicians," says Stone. "He hears music completely different than I do. I'm more like a classic soul/classic blues kind of singer and he is able to hear music in this new, weird, disco jazz nuance that totally challenges me to broaden my ear and my vocality."

They wrote and recorded some tracks in Malmö and, in early 2014, reconvened in Chewelah so they could work with members of Allen's band. Stone is a big fan of recording with real – rather than virtual – instruments.

"The computer's such a nice tool that it's starting to take the human element out of art. So where's the line? If the computer is doing 85% of the work, then whose record is it?" he asks. "Every instrument on the new record is all real."

Seeing the preponderance of DJ acts at the festivals he has played has been a little unsettling. "I kind of feel like the clerk who's been working at the grocery story for twenty years and all of a sudden they start bringing in these self check-out stands. And you're like, what the hell are they gonna need me for?" says Allen, laughing.

For years, they had been pushing themselves to reach new levels of success, searching for their place in the world. Plus, turbulent times within their personal lives had led them to a slightly disconnected state. "I went home to Maryland many times while making this album and based these songs on all the familiar feelings that Rockville gave me," Roberge says. "I tried to focus in on the simple things that always made this band so creative and driven. For everyone in the band, this was a restart. We've been hanging out, enjoying life, letting things go…The whole album is about a reboot."

That sense of renewal is evident on the first single, the deep, yearning "Peace." "As we were writing it, I felt the weight of three years lift off my shoulders," Roberge says. "We wrote it about getting back to that even playing field after you go through turbulent times.  It's about what I see people going through all around me, everyone deserves second, third, fourth chances."

Roberge wrote "Peace"with Blair Daly and Nashville-based producer Nathan Chapman, best known for his work with Taylor Swift, after Roberge introduced himself to Chapman at an event in Los Angeles. The two got along so well that, in addition to "Peace," their writing sessions yielded three other songs: "Favorite Song," "Two Hands Up" and "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." Chapman produced "Favorite Song" and "Two Hands Up," while Gregg Wattenberg, who co-wrote O.A.R.'s No. 1 smash, "Shattered (Turn the Car Around)," produced "Peace." Chapman and Wattenberg shared production duties on "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." With those four tracks serving as the foundation for the album and as a boost to the band's confidence, Roberge produced the rest of the tracks on THE ROCKVILLE LP including a co-production with Jerry DePizzo on "The Element." "We felt like we were on to something with an overwhelming freedom to chase down some more songs," Roberge says.

THE ROCKVILLE LP, which was recorded in Nashville, Bethesda, Md., and Brooklyn, N.Y., features some of O.A.R.'s most diverse, intricate songs to date. Bold horn arrangements weave in and out of several of the tunes, including "Irish Rose" sequel and DePizzo showcase, the jangly, story song, "Caroline the Wrecking Ball," as well as the ambitious "The Architect," a song adored by longtime fans, but one O.A.R. had never committed to an album before.

Pure joy and light-heartedness infuse album opener, the spiky infectious anthem, "Two Hands Up," and the irrepressible reggae-tinged "Favorite Song" in which Roberge cheerfully references dozens of song titles. "We were driving down roads in Nashville and Maryland feeling nostalgic harkening back to the days of endlessly flipping through the radio dial singing loudly to your favorite songs.  This song is an ode to the hit, to recognize the pure joy you can get from a song and some rolled down windows."

O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show —including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. With each studio album, the band has endeavored to achieve that sense of immediacy. On THE ROCKVILLE LP, "it comes the closest," Roberge says. "Every live band I know will always want nothing more than to carry their live performance onto the album.  It's an elusive thing to capture, so I'll never say we nailed it," Roberge says. "But I can guarantee we put that same live show energy and passion into each minute of THE ROCKVILLE LP and we can only hope the audience feels that."

Allen Stone
While the buzz was building in early 2014 about the Internet of Things, Allen Stone was recording in his rustic Washington State cabin and extolling the virtues of an old-fangled kind of connection – the one that exists between people playing music together. The 26-year-old soul singer, praised as a "pitch-perfect powerhouse" by USA Today, was working on the follow-up to his self-titled breakthrough album, which he released digitally on his own stickystones label in late 2011. Sure, he acknowledges, he could have written and recorded his new set of songs alone on a laptop – but that wouldn't have been nearly as much fun.

"I'm a social person and, to me, the greatest energy that you can cultivate is a collaborative energy. It feels better when you've got somebody to bounce ideas off of," explains Stone.

While he's not keen on creating music with computers, Stone nevertheless considers technology to be an enormous blessing. In fact, he might have never met his co-producer, Swedish musician Magnus Tingsek, if he hadn't been digging around online for new music.

"I was like his number one fan for three years," recalls Allen. At that point, things started exploding for Stone. His self-titled album shot into the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and entered the Top 5 of iTunes' R&B/Soul charts shortly after its release. Soon the unsigned artist was appearing on shows like "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "Live from Daryl's House." NPR's Ann Powers hailed the album as "meant for those of us who like our R&B slightly unkempt and exceedingly feelingful" and Forbes ran a feature focusing on his remarkable success as an independent artist. The New York Times' Jon Pareles praised Stone's live show, noting, "his music reached back four decades to the late 1960s and early '70s, when songwriters like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers brought introspection and social commentary to soul music."

A partnership with indie label ATO Records, which later released the album physically, opened new doors. Stone was voted one of mtvU's "Freshman 5" and named a VH1' "You Oughta Know" artist. He opened for Al Green and Dave Matthews and performed on "Late Show with David Letterman," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

With an 85-date headline tour planned and two out of three openers selected, Stone asked his manager, "Why don't we see if Tingsek will come?" Tingsek, who had never toured outside of Scandinavia, agreed and the two became good friends as they traveled across North America and throughout Europe.

My number one joy is playing live, so when I write records I really just think of what song I could write that would be really fun to play live," says Stone. "Basically my job is to throw a party for people every night when we're on tour."

The non-stop pace of touring and promotional appearances makes it tempting to "set the cruise control a little too high," Allen notes, which can take its toll over time. After doing nearly 600 shows in two years, Stone was ready to turn from touring to recording. He moved from Seattle back to his hometown of Chewelah, WA – population 2,606.

"To find the balance I was looking for, I needed to move out to the middle of nowhere – where I have no distractions whatsoever," he says.

As he considered who he might like to collaborate with, Tingsek came to mind. Stone flew to Malmö, Sweden in November of 2013 and, after just a day in the studio with Tingsek, he knew it was the right pairing.

"Magnus is like Prince – he plays everything! He's like one of those Swiss Army knife musicians," says Stone. "He hears music completely different than I do. I'm more like a classic soul/classic blues kind of singer and he is able to hear music in this new, weird, disco jazz nuance that totally challenges me to broaden my ear and my vocality."

They wrote and recorded some tracks in Malmö and, in early 2014, reconvened in Chewelah so they could work with members of Allen's band. Stone is a big fan of recording with real – rather than virtual – instruments.

"The computer's such a nice tool that it's starting to take the human element out of art. So where's the line? If the computer is doing 85% of the work, then whose record is it?" he asks. "Every instrument on the new record is all real."

Seeing the preponderance of DJ acts at the festivals he has played has been a little unsettling. "I kind of feel like the clerk who's been working at the grocery story for twenty years and all of a sudden they start bringing in these self check-out stands. And you're like, what the hell are they gonna need me for?" says Allen, laughing.

O.A.R. with special guest ALLEN STONE
O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show —including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans.

USA Today has called Allen Stone a "pitch-perfect powerhouse" and The New York Times has likened his socially conscious music to that of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers. But the 25-year-old singer-songwriter from the tiny backwoods town of Chewelah, Washington just sees himself as "a hippie with soul."

O.A.R
Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated "you can't go home again," but don't tell that to the members of O.A.R. On their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration.

"This isn't about us going back to our musical roots per se," says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). "It's about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We'd drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, spend time with our people.  Rockville was the catalyst then, and it's the catalyst now."

While the buzz was building in early 2014 about the Internet of Things, Allen Stone was recording in his rustic Washington State cabin and extolling the virtues of an old-fangled kind of connection – the one that exists between people playing music together. The 26-year-old soul singer, praised as a "pitch-perfect powerhouse" by USA Today, was working on the follow-up to his self-titled breakthrough album, which he released digitally on his own stickystones label in late 2011. Sure, he acknowledges, he could have written and recorded his new set of songs alone on a laptop – but that wouldn't have been nearly as much fun.

"I'm a social person and, to me, the greatest energy that you can cultivate is a collaborative energy. It feels better when you've got somebody to bounce ideas off of," explains Stone.

While he's not keen on creating music with computers, Stone nevertheless considers technology to be an enormous blessing. In fact, he might have never met his co-producer, Swedish musician Magnus Tingsek, if he hadn't been digging around online for new music.

"I was like his number one fan for three years," recalls Allen. At that point, things started exploding for Stone. His self-titled album shot into the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and entered the Top 5 of iTunes' R&B/Soul charts shortly after its release. Soon the unsigned artist was appearing on shows like "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "Live from Daryl's House." NPR's Ann Powers hailed the album as "meant for those of us who like our R&B slightly unkempt and exceedingly feelingful" and Forbes ran a feature focusing on his remarkable success as an independent artist. The New York Times' Jon Pareles praised Stone's live show, noting, "his music reached back four decades to the late 1960s and early '70s, when songwriters like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers brought introspection and social commentary to soul music."

A partnership with indie label ATO Records, which later released the album physically, opened new doors. Stone was voted one of mtvU's "Freshman 5" and named a VH1' "You Oughta Know" artist. He opened for Al Green and Dave Matthews and performed on "Late Show with David Letterman," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

With an 85-date headline tour planned and two out of three openers selected, Stone asked his manager, "Why don't we see if Tingsek will come?" Tingsek, who had never toured outside of Scandinavia, agreed and the two became good friends as they traveled across North America and throughout Europe.

My number one joy is playing live, so when I write records I really just think of what song I could write that would be really fun to play live," says Stone. "Basically my job is to throw a party for people every night when we're on tour."

The non-stop pace of touring and promotional appearances makes it tempting to "set the cruise control a little too high," Allen notes, which can take its toll over time. After doing nearly 600 shows in two years, Stone was ready to turn from touring to recording. He moved from Seattle back to his hometown of Chewelah, WA – population 2,606.

"To find the balance I was looking for, I needed to move out to the middle of nowhere – where I have no distractions whatsoever," he says.

As he considered who he might like to collaborate with, Tingsek came to mind. Stone flew to Malmö, Sweden in November of 2013 and, after just a day in the studio with Tingsek, he knew it was the right pairing.

"Magnus is like Prince – he plays everything! He's like one of those Swiss Army knife musicians," says Stone. "He hears music completely different than I do. I'm more like a classic soul/classic blues kind of singer and he is able to hear music in this new, weird, disco jazz nuance that totally challenges me to broaden my ear and my vocality."

They wrote and recorded some tracks in Malmö and, in early 2014, reconvened in Chewelah so they could work with members of Allen's band. Stone is a big fan of recording with real – rather than virtual – instruments.

"The computer's such a nice tool that it's starting to take the human element out of art. So where's the line? If the computer is doing 85% of the work, then whose record is it?" he asks. "Every instrument on the new record is all real."

Seeing the preponderance of DJ acts at the festivals he has played has been a little unsettling. "I kind of feel like the clerk who's been working at the grocery story for twenty years and all of a sudden they start bringing in these self check-out stands. And you're like, what the hell are they gonna need me for?" says Allen, laughing.

VINCE GILL
One of the most popular singers in modern country music, Vince Gill is famous for his top-notch songwriting, world-class guitar playing and warm, soaring tenor, all wrapped up in a quick and easy wit.

Vincent Grant Gill was born April 12, 1957 in Norman, Okla. His father encouraged him to learn to play guitar and banjo, which he did along with bass, mandolin, dobro and fiddle. While in high school, he performed in the bluegrass band Mountain Smoke, which built a strong local following and opened a concert for Pure Prairie League.

After graduating high school in 1975, Gill moved to Louisville, Ky. to be part of the band Bluegrass Alliance. After a brief time in Ricky Skaggs's Boone Creek band, Gill moved to Los Angeles and joined Sundance, a bluegrass group fronted by fiddler Byron Berline. In 1979, he joined Pure Prairie League as lead singer and recorded three albums with the band, the first of which yielded the Top Ten pop hit "Let Me Love You Tonight" in 1980. Departing the group in 1981, Gill joined Rodney Crowell's backing band the Cherry Bombs, where he met and worked with Tony Brown and Emory Gordy Jr., both of whom would later produce many of his future solo albums.

In 1983, Gill signed with RCA Records and moved with his wife Janis and daughter Jenny to Nashville to pursue his dream of being a Country Music artist. His debut mini-album Turn Me Loose (produced by Gordy) was released the following year, featuring his first charting solo single, "Victim of Life's Circumstance." The Things That Matter, his first full album was released later that year, featuring two Top 10 hits: a duet with Rosanne Cash on "If It Weren't For Him" and a solo hit with "Oklahoma Borderline." In 1987 he achieved his first Top 5 single, "Cinderella," from his album The Way Back Home. In addition to performing as a solo artist, Gill also worked frequently as a studio musician, wrote songs for other artists and toured with Emmylou Harris.

Gill signed with MCA Records in 1989, reuniting with Brown as a producer, and released the album When I Call Your Name. While the debut single "Oklahoma Swing" (a duet with Reba McEntire) reached the Top 20, it was the title cut that firmly established the singer as a new force on the Country Music scene. The song peaked at No. 2 and earned Gill his first CMA Award (Single of the Year) and his first Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance) in 1990. The next single, "Never Knew Lonely," peaked at No. 3 and the album was certified Platinum by the RIAA for sales of more than one million copies.

Declining an offer from Mark Knopfler to join Dire Straits as a full-time member, Gill went on to record his next album Pocket Full of Gold, which also became a Platinum certified album after it was released in 1991. The album featured four Top 10 hits including the title cut, "Liza Jane," "Look at Us" and "Take Your Memory With You." That year he also earned his first CMA Vocal Event of the Year Award for his performance with Mark O'Connor and the New Nashville Cats (featuring Gill, Ricky Skaggs and Steve Wariner). In 1992 he released the quadruple-Platinum certified I Still Believe In You. The title cut became Gill's first No. 1 single, followed quickly by "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away." The album also featured the hits "One More Last Chance," "Tryin' to Get Over You" and "No Future in the Past." Gill also topped the charts with "The Heart Won't Lie," his second duet with McEntire, which was featured on her album It's Your Call.

Vince Gill co-hosted the CMA Awards for the first time in 1992. He continued to host "Country Music's Biggest Night" for 12 consecutive years, ending his run in 2003. Gill not only set a record for the most times anyone has consecutively hosted a televised award show, but he set the bar for other television awards emcees with his respect for his peers and the audience, quick ad libs and gentle humor.

Gill recorded his first Christmas album Let There Be Peace on Earth in 1993, before releasing When Love Finds You in 1994. This album also sold more than four million copies and featured six hits including the title cut, "What the Cowgirls Do," "Whenever You Come Around," "Which Bridge to Cross (Which Bridge to Burn)," "You Better Think Twice" and "Go Rest High On That Mountain." Becoming an in-demand duet partner, Gill sang with Amy Grant on "House of Love," the title cut of her 1994 album which became a hit on adult contemporary radio stations, and with Dolly Parton on a duet version of her signature "I Will Always Love You" from her Something Special album that earned the duo the CMA Vocal Event of the Year Award 1996.

His 1996 album High Lonesome Sound featured Gill's eclectic musical stylings. Hits included the title cut, "My Pretty Little Adrianna," "Worlds Apart," "You and You Alone" and "A Little More Love." The Key, released in 1998, was a return to hardcore Country while chronicling the turmoil in his life including the death of his father and the breakup of his first marriage. The album, which was one of his most critically acclaimed releases and his first to top the Billboard Country Albums Chart, featured the hits "If You Ever Have Forever In Mind" and his duet with Patty Loveless on "My Kind of Woman/My Kind of Man." His status as an in-demand duet partner continued with his 1999 duet "If You Ever Leave Me" with Barbra Streisand on the latter's album A Love Like Ours.

Gill married singer Amy Grant in 2000, and released Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye that same year. The album celebrated his new relationship and featured the hit "Feels Like Love." The couple celebrated the birth of their daughter Corrina Grant Gill in 2001. Three years later, Gill released Next Big Thing, his first solo-produced album, featuring the title cut and "Young Man's Town." He reunited with Rodney Crowell, Tony Brown, Richard Bennett and Hank Devito (as well as new additions Eddie Bayers, John Hobbs and Michael Rhodes) as the Notorious Cherry Bombs, and the supergroup released an album in 2004 on Universal South Records featuring the single "It's Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night that Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long."

In 2006, Gill released These Days, a groundbreaking, four-CD set featuring 43 new recordings of diverse musical stylings. Each album in the set explored a different musical mood: traditional Country; ballads; contemporary, up-tempo; and acoustic/bluegrass music. The set features a variety of guest performers including John Anderson, Guy Clark, Sheryl Crow, Phil Everly, daughter Jenny Gill, wife Amy Grant, Emmylou Harris, Diana Krall, Michael McDonald, Bonnie Raitt, Leann Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Lee Ann Womack, Trisha Yearwood and more.

Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He has earned 18 CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994. He is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five), and is currently second only to Brooks and Dunn for accumulating the most CMA Awards in history. Gill is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and has received 20 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male Country artist. An avid golfer, he helped create the annual Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament ("The Vinny") in 1993 in order to help support junior golf programs throughout Tennessee. Besides being known for his talent as a performer, musician and songwriter, Gill is regarded as one of Country Music's best known humanitarians, participating in hundreds of charitable events throughout his career.

In August of 2007, the Country Music Association inducted Gill as the newest members of the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame.

Becoming an in-demand duet partner, Gill sang with Amy Grant on "House of Love," the title cut of her 1994 album which became a hit on adult contemporary radio stations, and with Dolly Parton on a duet version of her signature "I Will Always Love You" from her Something Special album that earned the duo the CMA Vocal Event of the Year Award 1996.

His 1996 album High Lonesome Sound featured Gill's eclectic musical stylings. Hits included the title cut, "My Pretty Little Adrianna," "Worlds Apart," "You and You Alone" and "A Little More Love." The Key, released in 1998, was a return to hardcore Country while chronicling the turmoil in his life including the death of his father and the breakup of his first marriage. The album, which was one of his most critically acclaimed releases and his first to top the Billboard Country Albums Chart, featured the hits "If You Ever Have Forever In Mind" and his duet with Patty Loveless on "My Kind of Woman/My Kind of Man." His status as an in-demand duet partner continued with his 1999 duet "If You Ever Leave Me" with Barbra Streisand on the latter's album A Love Like Ours.

Gill married singer Amy Grant in 2000, and released Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye that same year. The album celebrated his new relationship and featured the hit "Feels Like Love." The couple celebrated the birth of their daughter Corrina Grant Gill in 2001. Three years later, Gill released Next Big Thing, his first solo-produced album, featuring the title cut and "Young Man's Town." He reunited with Rodney Crowell, Tony Brown, Richard Bennett and Hank Devito (as well as new additions Eddie Bayers, John Hobbs and Michael Rhodes) as the Notorious Cherry Bombs, and the supergroup released an album in 2004 on Universal South Records featuring the single "It's Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night that Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long."

In 2006, Gill released These Days, a groundbreaking, four-CD set featuring 43 new recordings of diverse musical stylings. Each album in the set explored a different musical mood: traditional Country; ballads; contemporary, up-tempo; and acoustic/bluegrass music. The set features a variety of guest performers including John Anderson, Guy Clark, Sheryl Crow, Phil Everly, daughter Jenny Gill, wife Amy Grant, Emmylou Harris, Diana Krall, Michael McDonald, Bonnie Raitt, Leann Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Lee Ann Womack, Trisha Yearwood and more.

Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He has earned 18 CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994. He is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five), and is currently second only to Brooks and Dunn for accumulating the most CMA Awards in history. Gill is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and has received 20 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male Country artist. An avid golfer, he helped create the annual Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament ("The Vinny") in 1993 in order to help support junior golf programs throughout Tennessee. Besides being known for his talent as a performer, musician and songwriter, Gill is regarded as one of Country Music's best known humanitarians, participating in hundreds of charitable events throughout his career.

In August of 2007, the Country Music Association inducted Gill as the newest members of the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame.

VINCE GILL
One of the most popular singers in modern country music, Vince Gill is famous for his top-notch songwriting, world-class guitar playing and warm, soaring tenor, all wrapped up in a quick and easy wit.

Vincent Grant Gill was born April 12, 1957 in Norman, Okla. His father encouraged him to learn to play guitar and banjo, which he did along with bass, mandolin, dobro and fiddle. While in high school, he performed in the bluegrass band Mountain Smoke, which built a strong local following and opened a concert for Pure Prairie League.

After graduating high school in 1975, Gill moved to Louisville, Ky. to be part of the band Bluegrass Alliance. After a brief time in Ricky Skaggs's Boone Creek band, Gill moved to Los Angeles and joined Sundance, a bluegrass group fronted by fiddler Byron Berline. In 1979, he joined Pure Prairie League as lead singer and recorded three albums with the band, the first of which yielded the Top Ten pop hit "Let Me Love You Tonight" in 1980. Departing the group in 1981, Gill joined Rodney Crowell's backing band the Cherry Bombs, where he met and worked with Tony Brown and Emory Gordy Jr., both of whom would later produce many of his future solo albums.

In 1983, Gill signed with RCA Records and moved with his wife Janis and daughter Jenny to Nashville to pursue his dream of being a Country Music artist. His debut mini-album Turn Me Loose (produced by Gordy) was released the following year, featuring his first charting solo single, "Victim of Life's Circumstance." The Things That Matter, his first full album was released later that year, featuring two Top 10 hits: a duet with Rosanne Cash on "If It Weren't For Him" and a solo hit with "Oklahoma Borderline." In 1987 he achieved his first Top 5 single, "Cinderella," from his album The Way Back Home. In addition to performing as a solo artist, Gill also worked frequently as a studio musician, wrote songs for other artists and toured with Emmylou Harris.

Gill signed with MCA Records in 1989, reuniting with Brown as a producer, and released the album When I Call Your Name. While the debut single "Oklahoma Swing" (a duet with Reba McEntire) reached the Top 20, it was the title cut that firmly established the singer as a new force on the Country Music scene. The song peaked at No. 2 and earned Gill his first CMA Award (Single of the Year) and his first Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance) in 1990. The next single, "Never Knew Lonely," peaked at No. 3 and the album was certified Platinum by the RIAA for sales of more than one million copies.

Declining an offer from Mark Knopfler to join Dire Straits as a full-time member, Gill went on to record his next album Pocket Full of Gold, which also became a Platinum certified album after it was released in 1991. The album featured four Top 10 hits including the title cut, "Liza Jane," "Look at Us" and "Take Your Memory With You." That year he also earned his first CMA Vocal Event of the Year Award for his performance with Mark O'Connor and the New Nashville Cats (featuring Gill, Ricky Skaggs and Steve Wariner). In 1992 he released the quadruple-Platinum certified I Still Believe In You. The title cut became Gill's first No. 1 single, followed quickly by "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away." The album also featured the hits "One More Last Chance," "Tryin' to Get Over You" and "No Future in the Past." Gill also topped the charts with "The Heart Won't Lie," his second duet with McEntire, which was featured on her album It's Your Call.

Vince Gill co-hosted the CMA Awards for the first time in 1992. He continued to host "Country Music's Biggest Night" for 12 consecutive years, ending his run in 2003. Gill not only set a record for the most times anyone has consecutively hosted a televised award show, but he set the bar for other television awards emcees with his respect for his peers and the audience, quick ad libs and gentle humor.

Gill recorded his first Christmas album Let There Be Peace on Earth in 1993, before releasing When Love Finds You in 1994.
