The Hollywood Times
Just before his first solo album in four years went on sale, Vince Gill joined one of his esteemed colleagues in being honored by The Guitar Center’s Hollywood RockWalk.
Inducted into the legendary walk of fame by The Eagle’s Joe Walsh, the evening was particularly special to Gill as Walsh has been a musician he’s always looked up to.
The Hollywood RockWalk was first established in 1985 and is “dedicated to honoring individuals who have made significant contributions to The Music Business”.
Gill was honored by having a plaque and his handprints placed alongside many of his fellow accomplished musicians’. Being induced into The RockWalk held a special place in Gill’s heart and he acknowledged the strong impact it had on him.
“It is an absolute honor to be chosen by my peers to be inducted into Guitar Center’s RockWalk. I’ve always been grateful to be able to spend my life doing what I love to do, and to be recognized in such a monumental way – cemented next to the legendary artists reflected on the RockWalk – is a moment I could never have imagined when I picked up that very first guitar.“
Walsh echoed his colleagues sentiment, adding that the country star was a great choice for the high honor.
“It’s a pretty impressive little piece of real estate out front and today’s going to take it up a notch.”
The induction ceremony was held at noon on Thursday, February 11th, 2016 and was an invitation-only event. Other inductees include Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder, Kris Kristofferson, and many more.
Vince Gill’s latest musical masterpiece, Down To My Last Bad Habit, debuted on Friday February 4th, 2016, and featured his stunning collaboration with Little Big Town, “Take Me Down”.
