Vince Gill’s Favorite Song

Since Vince Gill has done numerous performance of the song. It is safe to say that this might be his favorite song out of all the other Dolly Parton classics. But then again, the song is everyone’s favorite because of the rich history behind it.

Apparently, Dolly made the song as an apology to his ex-duet partner Porter Wagoner. She had to stop their partnership because she wanted to have a solo career. So, she wrote the song as a goodbye to her partner. Vince Gill was able to convey the emotions through all of his performances.

 The Ryman Auditorium

Before Grand Ole Opry became the prestigious stage of country music, the Ryman Auditorium was already there. This hall served as the first home of Grand Ole Opry before moving to its new location.

The brief video was posted on the Ryman official website. The performance was almost a homage to Dolly Parton. Although the video released was only a teaser and not the full performance, you can already tell that is going to be amazing. For the full video of Vince Gill’s cover, stand by for the release on July 28, 2019.
