“Vince Gill is quite simply a living prism refracting all that is good in country music. He uses the crystal planes of his songwriting, his playing, and his singing to give us a musical rainbow that embraces all men and spans all seasons.” – Kyle Young/Country Music Foundation on Vince’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He has earned 18 CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994. He is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five), and is currently second only to Brooks and Dunn for accumulating the most CMA Awards in history. Gill is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and has received 20 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male Country artist. An avid golfer, he helped create the annual Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament (“The Vinny”) in 1993 in order to help support junior golf programs throughout Tennessee. Besides being known for his talent as a performer, musician and songwriter, Gill is regarded as one of Country Music’s best known humanitarians, participating in hundreds of charitable events throughout his career.

In August of 2007, the Country Music Association inducted Gill as the newest members of the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame.

More than fifty years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theater forever. Now, it’s making history once again.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time.

The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim – a collection of standards that includes “Tonight,” “America,” “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere” – is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance.

This tour, based on Arthur Laurents’ groundbreaking 2009 Broadway direction, offers a bold new design that builds on the show’s raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it. Don’t miss this thrilling presentation of a matchless work of art.
