Jenny Gill Delivers Country Soul Debut with The House Sessions

Father Vince Gill Produces Six-Song Collection

Saturday night’s (Feb. 11) Grand Ole Opry wasn’t Jenny Gill’s first performance on the historic show, but it was an important night. It was her first Opry set where she delivered live selections of original material from her six-song debut, The House Sessions.

Unfortunately, her father, Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, had to miss it. He was in Los Angeles for the 59th annual Grammy awards where he picked up his 21st Grammy for best American roots song for writing the title track of The Time Jumpers’ latest collection Kid Sister.

Vince did call Jenny from L.A., and they shared a laugh before she went onstage.

“You can officially put alcohol in them and take shots out of them now,” Jenny joked about her father’s Grammy collection during our interview. “I’m probably going to do that to the 21st one when he’s not looking. Of course, he feels so honored and grateful. I think it’s so well-deserved.”

It can be both a blessing and a curse to come from country music royalty. There’s a lot to live up to when your father is a record-holding Grammy winner and your mother is Janis Oliver from Sweethearts of the Rodeo. Her stepmother is Amy Grant, with whom Jenny has toured as a backup singer for the last six years.
