1994 In Country Music Was The Year Of Vince Gill

1994.  Twenty years ago already.  Really??  Geez, seems like last month.  But indeed, twenty years ago.

1994 was a great year for country music.  The CMA Awards show in October of that year featured some of the greatest artist’s and songs in the history of country music.

The ‘Song Of The year’, which goes to the writer(s) was a huge hit for a relative newcomer, a guy who had come onto the country music scene just 4 years earlier.  We  sure did like him but we weren’t sure if Alan Jackson would be able to put together a long career.

Well, that question has certainly been answered, and one of the reason’s was his 1994 award winning song ‘Chattahoochee’.

John Michael Montgomery snared the ‘Single Of The Year’ in 1994, an award that goes to the artist, for his smash hit ‘I Swear’.

Album of the year?  That went to an album that featured almost every star in country music, ‘Common Thread: Songs Of The Eagles‘.  And one of our favorites, Pam Tillis, received the ‘Female Vocalist Of The year’.

But the big prize each year of course is the ‘Entertainer Of The year Award’.

Well, in 1994, the guy who received that honor was also named ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’…oh, and did I mention he also hosted the awards show that night as well!

Yep, folks got to see a lot of future Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill!

One of Vince’s huge 1994 hit’s was his now great classic ‘What The Cowgirl’s Do’.

The house was full of future Hall of Famer’s that night at the 1994 CMA awards show.  Names like Brooks, Strait, McEntire and Alabama.

But 1994 could rightly be called the year of Vince Gill.
