Vince Gill and the Eagles Make Grand Ole Opry History

On Sunday night, Vince Gill and the Eagles rocked the Grand Ole Opry with another sizzling hot collaborative performance. During a very special and exclusive invitation-only event for the subscribers of Sirius XM, country music’s longest-running live radio show, rocky and country music perfectly fused together once again thanks to the musical expertise and sheer talent of both acts.

It was their first-ever concert together at the prestigious hall. The concert ran for a raging 2-hour run; with a thrilling harmony of Seven Bridges Road opening the show. Gill was joined by the amazing musical genius of Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmit, Joe Walsh, Deacon Frey, son of the late Glenn Frey, and long-time touring guitarist Steuart Smith. Together they performed AM, FM, and satellite radio staples, along with over a dozen of the band’s greatest hits.

Other beautiful pieces that the fans were serenaded with include Life’s Been Good, Walk Away, Rocky Mountain Way, Life in the Fast Lane, and Funk #49.

Below is the full Grand Ole Opry House set list of the Eagles:

  • “Seven Bridges Road”
  • “Take It Easy”
  • “One of These Nights”
  • “Take It to the Limit”
  • “Tequila Sunrise”
  • “Witchy Woman”
  • “In the City”
  • “I Can’t Tell You Why”
  • “Peaceful Easy Feeling”
  • “Best of My Love”
  • “Lyin’ Eyes”
  • “Love Will Keep Us Alive”
  • “New Kid in Town”
  • “Those Shoes”
  • “Already Gone”
  • “Walk Away”
  • “Heartache Tonight”
  • “Life’s Been Good”
  • “Funk #49”
  • “Life in the Fast Lane”
  • “Hotel California”
  • “Rocky Mountain Way”
  • “Desperado”

Later on, Vince Gill performed New Kid In Town and dedicated the song to the younger Frey. Gill even joked, “Pretty good new band I play with. It’s very strange for me to hear anybody’s voice but Glenn’s sing these songs.”

Eagles did not perform any material from their most recent album, despite its chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning and million-dollar status. The said album contained songs with the cheeky combination of pop and country.

Coming mid-November, the concert will be made available on air on Sirius  XM’s Hotel California. It will jive with the said channel’s launching.
