Trip Tips: Vince Gill’s Guide To Nashville
It’s with good reason that Vince Gill is affectionately referred to as “The Mayor of Nashville.” Though he was born in Norman, Oklahoma, Vince has not only established himself as a country music icon but also as a true champion of the town who sings the praises of the Grand Ole Opry, the Nashville Predators, and every Music City institution in between. When he’s not performing at the Opry or playing in the Western swing band, The Time Jumpers, at 3rd and Lindsley, you can find him enjoying life like any other down-to-earth Nashvillian — who just happens to have 21 Grammy Awards to his name.
