Vince Gill Notches 21st Grammy Win Most Grammys Won By A Male Country Artist

14/02/2017

Nashville, TN – February 13, 2017—Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill won his 21st Grammy trophy at last night's awards ceremonies in Los Angeles—this one for Best American Roots Song.  Gill's winning song was “Kid Sister,” the title track for The Time Jumpers' latest Rounder Records album. He wrote it in honor of vocalist Dawn Sears, a  member of the band who died of cancer in 2014.  Gill is a long-time member of The Time Jumpers.

"I wish you all would have had the chance once in your life to hear the voice of the woman I wrote this song about," said Gill to the Grammy audience in Los Angeles.  "Her name was Dawn Sears. And on behalf of myself and The Time Jumpers, we got to perform a song  that I wrote to honor her.  It was one of the greatest thrills in my life and one of the best voices you'll ever hear in your life.  I encourage you to find her voice." Apart from her work with The Time Jumpers, Sears toured as Gill's backup vocalist for 22 years.
