Vince Gill Receives the Irving Waugh Award of Excellence and Other CMA Highlights

This years CMA Awards will always hold a special place in my heart because it was this year that Vince Gill received the Irving Waugh Award of Excellence. The award is rather prestigious and has only been given to ONE other artist and that is the great Johnny Cash. Vince Gill is a singers singer, a true musician a friend and a mentor to so many in the business and a true testament to what it means to LOVE what you do. His career speaks for itself and his humble nature is something I am constantly in awe of.

The tribute that was done for Vince before he got up to speak was spectacular and his speech was one that will be remembered by many. I am a long time Vince Gill fan and seeing him get this recognition definitely brought tears of joy to my eyes. Way to go Vince…I know I can speak for all of your fans when I say there is no one who deserves it more than you! If you missed the tribute take a look below and watch!

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s monologue. These two have a knack for this and crack me up!
