Vince Gill Makes Opry Debut as Eagle

And it was unreal


Who would’ve thought there were more legendary moments to be had by Vince Gill at the Grand Ole Opry? Or historic moments for the Eagles.

But the country superstar joined The Eagles for an invitation only concert at the world famous live music venue. It was the first time the rock band played the hall.

After the passing of the late Glenn Frey, The Eagles tapped the “Go High On That Mountain” singer to join their line up and he has been with them on tour. Along with Frey’s son, Deacon.

The two-hour set that opened “Seven Bridges Road,” Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit and longtime touring guitarist Steuart Smith, along with Deacon Frey, and Gill played their way through nearly two dozen of the band’s best-known hits.

Walsh played some solo tunes, “Life’s Been Good,” “Rocky Mountain Way” a part of the group’s second encore, and “Walk Away” and “Funk #49.”

He dedicated his touching performance of the band’s “New Kid in Town” to the younger Frey, who took the lead on the group’s early country-tinged numbers “Take It Easy,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Already Gone.”

Gill took the lead on the “Lyin’ Eyes,” as well as “Tequila Sunrise” and “Heartache Tonight.”
