The year was 1991. Vince Gill‘s career was hotter than ever. He released his fourth solo album called Pocket Full of Gold, which included four singles.
One of those singles was the ultra-romantic love song “Look at Us”, which won the CMA for Song of the Year in 1992.
When hearing the beautiful lyrics of this song, you will immediately think of your special someone. If you don’t have one, you will dream of having one like Gill describes in the chorus.
“Look at you
Still pretty as a picture
Look at me
Still crazy over you
Look at us
Still believin’ in forever.”
Thanks to the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards, country singers of all generations have come together for a video series called Forever Country Cover Series. So far, eighteen country singers have reordered their versions of iconic songs, which all have won one or more CMA Awards.
Deana Carter, most famous for singing the 1996 smash-hit “Strawberry Wine”, was chosen to cover Gill’s “Look At Us” and it was exactly as we expected – incredible!
She embodied the emotion necessary to sing a song of this stature, and we know Gill is proud she sang his tune.
