Vince Gill’s successful career as a singer-songwriter will be acclaimed by Broadcast Music Inc., (BMI), in November. The Oklahoma native and seller of more than 26 million albums will be named a BMI Icon at the company’s 62nd annual BMI Country Awards. This year’s invitation-only event will be held at BMI’s Music Row offices in Nashville on November 4th, the night before the 48th Annual CMA Awards.
Gill joins an incredible list of past BMI Icon award recipients including Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Dolly Parton.
“The craft of a songwriter isn’t easy; however, Vince makes it look easy. He binds lyrics with music into timeless songs that have influenced musicians across all genres,” said BMI President & Chief Executive Officer Mike O’ Neill. “Vince Gill’s discography, in addition to his philanthropic endeavors in Nashville and beyond, represents the epitome of a BMI Icon, and we look forward to celebrating his accomplishments.”
The veteran singer has a lengthy list of awards from his 35 years in the industry with more than 74 major awards, including 20 Grammys. His iconic career will be honored with an all-star musical tribute during the ceremony.
