Okie CD (Autographed)
Purchase includes CD booklet signed by Vince Gill.
Grammy Award-winning MCA Nashville country star Vince Gill has announced his new album, Okie, which is co-produced by Gill and Justin Niebank. The 12-track album features “A Letter To My Mama" and the recently release track “When My Amy Prays,” a song about Gill’s wife singer-songwriter Amy Grant.
The album’s title is taken from the once-derogatory term used to disparage migrants from Oklahoma to the nation’s west coast during the Dust Bowl and Great Depression eras. A proud Oklahoman, Gill has appropriated this term on an album that embraces his roots and explores some of the most important issues of our time.
“I thought this was going to be a songwriter record, not a concept album,” Gill says. “It wound up being more information than I’d envisioned. A friend sent me an email saying, ‘You could have only written this record after living a 60-year-plus life.’ He said, ‘There’s no struggle in these songs, just truth and your experience.”
