Country music Hall of Famer Vince Gill to play Hard Rock Tulsa on June 2

4 April 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- One of the most popular and most recorded singers of the past quarter-century, superstar Vince Gill along with his top-notch band is performing at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa June 2.

Tickets start at $70 and go on sale April 7.

Gill just released his new MCA Records album, "Down To My Last Bad Habit," which he wrote/co-wrote, co-produced and is a featured musician on all 12 songs.

Gill achieved his big breakthrough with "When I Call Your Name," which won the Country Music Association's Single of the Year award. Since then, he has won 17 more CMA honors, including Song of the Year four times, making him the most awarded artist in that category in CMA history.

Since 1990, Gill has received 20 Grammy Awards and sold more than 26 million albums. The Academy of Country Music has handed Gill eight awards, including their prestigious Home Depot Humanitarian Award and the Career Achievement Award. Gill was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In August 2012, Gill was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is a member of the four-time Grammy-nominated band The Time Jumpers. Rounder Records released the band's first studio album in 2012.

Gill's high, pure tenor voice and unerring sense of harmony have caused dozens of artists—from Reba McEntire to Dolly Parton to Barbra Streisand—to embrace him as a duet partner. He is both a world-class guitar picker and a wide-ranging songwriter, whose compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. Gill has accompanied artists on more than 500 albums by joining the likes of Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, George Jones, LeAnn Rimes, Amy Grant and many others.

After working more than 40 years as a professional musician, Gill has established himself as one of the most successful guitarists of his generation. Combining a deep knowledge of Americana, bluegrass and classic country with the fire of '60s rock, Gill has earned a place next to his musical heroes.
