Country legend Vince Gill celebrated his 25th year as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in a night filled with unforgettable performances alongside fellow country music legends and the sharing of memorable stories about his time with Opry. 

Daughter Jenny Gill shared about the first time her father got his long awaited invitation to perform live onstage at the Gand Ole Opry. However, Vince was forced to decline the incredibly monumental opportunity due to a conflict in booking

What performance could be important enough to make the country star decline this opportunity he had waited so long for? Vince was already booked to perform at Jenny's talent show playing guitar for her performance of "You Are My Sunshine."

"It's a great thing they called him back, don't you think?" Jenny jokingly remarked. 

Gill celebrated what he recalls as "the best night ever" performing alongside fellow artists such as Rodney Crowell, Patty Loveless, Amy Grant, and even his daughter Jenny. 

Vince Gill is one of the youngest artists to earn a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame and is one of the most decorated artists in the genre. While he had many songs enter the Top 10 list, his career really launched with his release of "When I Call Your Name" in 1990. 

Watch Gill perform the song that launched his career "Go Rest High On That Mountain" alongside Patty Loveless live at the Opry in the video below.
