CMT has announced a star-studded special honoring country star Vince Gill‘s music career.
The announcement was made Thursday during Gill’s sold-out residency run at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
“CMT GIANTS: Vince Gill,” an all-new 90-minute star-studded special celebrating Gill, will premiere at 9 p.m./8 p.m. CT on September 16 on CMT.
CMT will feature Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Emmylou Harris, Keith Urban, Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs, Rodney Crowell and Sting in the special. The show will also include an interview with Gill and his famous friends sharing their favorite stories about the man George Jones famously called “Sweet Pea.”
“From his timeless song catalog, numerous awards and unmatched musicianship, to the respect and camaraderie cultivated among his fellow musicians, and of course, his signature sense of humor, we can all agree Vince is a true titan in country music,” said Margaret Comeaux, CMT‘s Senior Vice President of Production, Music & Events.
Gill broke into country music in 1990 with his seminal hit “When I Call Your Name” and went on to win 19 CMA Awards and 22 Grammy Awards. He is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
