Gill’s “Look at Us” from the Pocket Full of Gold

American country music artist Vince Gill co-wrote and recorded “Look at Us”. Released in September 1991, the song occupied the number 4 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. Gill wrote the song with Max D. Barnes as the third single from the album Pocket Full of Gold.

“Look at Us” features a pedal steel guitar intro from John Hughey, who was known for his “crying steel” method of playing by using the higher ranges of the instrument. Of this solo, Gill said that it “makes that song recognizable by what happens before any words even get sung”.

John Prine recorded the song as a duet with Morgane Stapleton as part of his 2016 album For Better or Worse. Deana Carter also performed a cover to celebrate 50 years of the CMA Awards.

The music video was directed by John Lloyd Miller and premiered in late 1991. It contains videos and photographs of several long-time married couples, still in love.


Born April 12, 1957, Vincent Grant Gill is an American country singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He achieved commercial success and fame as frontman to the country rock band Pure Prairie League in the 1970s. In 1983, he started his solo career where his talents as a vocalist and musician placed him in high demand as a guest vocalist and a duet partner.

He has recorded more than 20 studio albums, charted over 40 singles on the U.S. Billboard charts as Hot Country Songs, and sold more than 26 million albums. He has been honored by the Country Music Association with 18 CMA Awards, including two Entertainer of the Year awards and five Male Vocalist Awards. As of date, Gill has also earned 21 Grammy Awards, more than any other male country musician. In 2007 he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. On February 4, 2016, Gill was inducted into the Guitar Center Rock Walk by Joe Walsh of the Eagles. In 2017, Vince Gill and Deacon Frey joined the Eagles to help fill-in for the late Glenn Frey.
