Vince Gill recently released a 4-CD, boxed set of brand new music! Quite an accomplishment.
We were fortunate enough to have him join us on October at our annual "A Night to Remember 2006" celebration at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center here in Dallas.
The acoustics in the hall are amazing. To say the least, Vince and his 17-piece band filled the place with music! Vince played a good portion of his new music.
Among my favorites is "What You Give Away," written with Al Anderson and performed on the album with Sheryl Crow.
You read the business page, see how you did today Life's just passin' by You live up on the hill, you've got a view that kills Never wonder why After you've counted everything you saved Do you ever hit your knees and pray? You know there's gonna be a judgment day So what will you say? No matter what you make All that you can take Is what you give away What you give away There's people on the street Ain't got enough to eat You just shake your head The measure of a man is one who lends a hand That's what my father said After you've counted everything you've saved Do you ever hit your knees and pray? You know there's gonna be a judgment day So what will you say? No matter what you make All that you can take Is what you give away What you give away It's what you give away After you've counted everything you've saved Do you ever hit your knees and pray? You know there's gonna be a judgment day So what will you say? No matter what you make All that you can take Is what you give away
You know it's not too late It's all for Heaven's sake What you give away What you give away What you give away
