Vince Gill Honored with Star On the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Vince Gill is joining his wife, Amy Grant, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Grant received her star in 2006, and in 2012 Vince will be honored with a star of his own. I’m pretty sure their stars won’t be positioned next to one another, but a star is a star! Other 2012 Hollywood Walk of Famers include actors Jennifer Aniston, Richard Burton, Kate Winslet, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez and Adam West, music legends Barry White, Hal David, David Foster and the band Heart and cartoonist Matt Groening.
Gill once lived in Los Angeles when he was still a youngster and not yet so accomplished. Yet, he never thought the day would come when he would be honored in such a way.
“When I lived out there, I was such a young person…So even the thought of one day having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was preposterous. It was silly. It wasn’t even in the realm of my thinking. I walked up and down Hollywood Boulevard and said, ‘There is so-and-so.’ I never thought for one second, ‘I will have one of these one day.” -Vince Gill
Vince adds this honor into the Hollywood Walk of Fame to his list of noteworthy inductions which includes the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
