Trivia / Vince Gill

  • Chart Displacement: Perhaps the most extreme example out there. "Go Rest High on That Mountain" is by far his most famous song, but he has had over thirty songs outpeak it (counting guest appearances).
  • Creator Couple: Twice. First with Janis Oliver (one-half of 80s country duo Sweethearts of the Rodeo), then with Christian singer Amy Grant.
  • He Also Did: Gill has had a handful of outside songwriting cuts. The most prominent is "Here We Are", a 1991 hit for Alabama, but another example was "You Just Get One", which was cut by both Ty Herndon and Jeff Wood. Gill sang backing vocals on the former, and played lead guitar on the latter.
  • What Could Have Been: In the early 1990s, Gill turned down an offer to join Dire Straits.
