In 2019, one of the most popular artists in modern country music, Vince Gill, released his new single “The Price of Regret” as part of his album, Okie. 

Vincent Grant Gill, popularly known as Vince Gill, started his career in music way back in the 1970s. He went on to kick start his career as a frontman for the popular country rock band Pure Prairie League. But in 1983, he began his musical career as a solo artist. 

Over the years, there have been several top Vince Gill songs released, like “Hotel California” and “Desperado” which were songs released during the 1990s. Since we are already stepping into a new age, and country music is slowly evolving, Vince Gill proved once more that he still has the charm to stay relevant after long years of being in the industry with his 2019 single “The Price of Regret.”

In 2017, the Oklahoma native opened an emotional speech about his experience with racism, from how his father rejected him to how an African-American lawyer helped him turn that around. Since the song has quite the story behind it, how about we dive into it now and find out the real meaning behind it? 

Meaning Behind the Song

Written by Vince Gill himself, the song simply talks about finding that place for everyone to be equal and be brothers and sisters so that we can accomplish much.

It is a song about stopping racism, embracing each other’s flaws, and using the word “I’m sorry” more than they are. In the song, Gill stated that we tend to get haunted by what we have done and yearn for the pain to be gone. 

So, we all tend to exert our frustration in ways we think best. But for Gill, we all should just lay down our burden and shame. After all, we are all God’s children, so we all bleed the same. 

To summarize, Vince Gill’s song “The Price of Regret” is a perfect anthem for those who want peace in this world. Watch the video below.
