Vince Gill paid nearly a decade???and???a???half of dues en route to becoming one of the most popular country stars of the '90s. Starting out as a bluegrass singer and multi???instrumentalist, he initially
made his name with country???rockers Pure Prairie League and spent the '80s as part of country's new traditionalist movement before finding massive success as a contemporary country hitmaker.
Gill had strong mainstream appeal, yet enough songwriting chops and grounding in tradition that he could maintain his artistic credibility without being branded a crossover???happy hack. That
balance made him the kind of performer who awards ceremonies can feel good about honoring, and honor him they did: Gill has won more CMA Awards than any performer in history, and his 14
Grammys tie him with Chet Atkins for the most ever by a country artist.
