Vince Gill Receiving Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Vince Gill will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012. Before launching his country career in Nashville, Gill moved to Los Angeles at 19 and played in a bluegrass band called Sundance, fronted by Byron Berline. At his first L.A. show with the band, Gill met Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and Guy Clark. “I had no idea how they would shape my future,” he said. “There they were right off the bat, and we hit it off. I don’t think I could have found a better place to go at that age. It would have been a much better situation for me than coming to Nashville at that time. It was really an amazing place to be.” Gill lived in Los Angeles from 1976 until 1983. His wife, singer-songwriter Amy Grant, already has a star on the Walk of Fame, and Gill has asked for his star to be located next to hers.
