Vince Gill Joined by Legends
PR reports: At his sellout concert at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido, Vince Gill invited San Diego-resident Patti Page to join him in a rendition of her 1950 #1 hit, "The Tennessee Waltz." When Gill brought Page on stage he quipped, "You know, it just dawned on me that it was Miss Patti's music that my mom taught me to dance to." Page launched into an amazing version of her iconic hit as Gill, overcome by emotions, struggled to provide harmonies. He then took the hand of his famous duet partner and proceeded to waltz to the delight of the crowd. "This is a moment I will remember for the rest of my life," Gill marveled as Page left the stage.

Gill next headed north to Bakersfield, CA, the hometown of the late and legendary Buck Owens. Prior to his sold-out performance at the Fox Theater, Gill visited Owen's radio station, KUZZ, where he found a surprise awaiting him. Way back in 1991, during Gill's performance at the Kern County Fair, Owens had presented him with one of Owens' signature red, white and blue acoustic guitars. That guitar currently hangs in Gill's office.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
