Living legend Vince Gill was joined on stage by fellow country artists Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs for a heart-wrenching performance of his famed “Go Rest High on That Mountain” at Carnegie Hall.
“This is a song I wrote about my brother when he passed away some years back,” says Gill. “This song’s brought an awful lot of peace to an awful lot of people over the years, I had no idea it would but I’m grateful that people use it in their toughest times.”
Gill took center stage with Krauss and Skaggs on either side of him, with Krauss on the violin and Skaggs on the mandolin. All artists on stage are a legend in their own right making for a performance difficult to rival.
Gill wrote “Go Rest High on That Mountain” following the death of his older brother in 1993. The eulogic ballad won two Grammys for “Best Male Country Vocal Performance” and “Best Country Song” reaching No.14 on Billboard’s country singles chart.
