Country music legend Vince Gill rocked the ACMs when his cover of a classic tune left his audience with an impression they are sure to never forget. Introduced by Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, and Jeff Foxworthy, Gill took to the coveted ACMs stage alongside country music group The Tractors, bringing to life a tune made famous by rock and roll legend Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Performing the thrilling number “If The House Is Rockin'” at the highly regarded 1995 event, a young Gill was surrounded by a cloud of fog and flashing lights as his iconic vocals rang, “Kick off your shoes start losin’ the blues/ This old house ain’t got nothin’ to lose/ Seen it all for years, start spreadin’ the news/ We got room on the floor, come on baby shake sumpin’ loose’ Well, the house is a rockin’, don’t bother knockin’.”
Needless to say, this house was definitely rocking as the country legend tore up the stage in perhaps one of the most riveting covers we’ve heard. Just a few years prior, Vaughan was tragically killed in a helicopter accident in 1990 while joined aboard the aircraft by three of fellow rockstar Eric Clapton’s band members.
