Vince Gill has announced that he will be back on the road this summer, confirming 18 US dates for July and August, with more to be added in the coming weeks.
This will be the first time that the country giant, also much admired in recent years as a member of the touring line-up of the Eagles, has toured with his band since 2019. Featured vocalist on the dates will be Wendy Moten, the distinguished artist especially noted for her 1994 hit “Come In Out Of The Rain” and more recently for her appearances on NBC’s The Voice.
“When all touring stopped back in March of 2020, it was a good time for me to take a break from the road,” says Gill. “Now the Eagles are touring again, and that’s a blast! But I’m also eager to get back on the bus and visit some places and fans that I haven’t seen for a while.”
Moten has toured as a harmony singer for several years, as well as playing live extensively with Julio Iglesias, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Martina McBride. Her most recent album I’ve Got You Covered was produced by Gill, who said of her: “I’ve always enjoyed sharing a stage with Wendy, whether she was singing harmonies for me, or when we were in the Time Jumpers together.
“It’s always been my wish that more of the world could hear her, so being able to feature her each night of this tour is something I look forward to,” he adds. Gill’s band for the shows will also feature celebrated steel guitar player Paul Franklin, Billy Thomas (drums), Jimmy Sloas (bass), and John Jarvis (keyboards).
