Gill, a native of Norman, Oklahoma, achieved breakthrough success in 1990 with his single “When I Call Your Name.” The song peaked at No. 2 and earned Gill his first CMA Award for Single of the Year and his first Grammy Award for Best Male County Vocal Performance that year.

Gill co-hosted the CMA Awards for the first time in 1992. He continued to host “Country Music’s Biggest Night” for 12 consecutive years, ending his run in 2003. Gill not only set a record for the most times anyone has consecutively hosted a televised award show, but he set the bar for other television awards emcees with his respect for his peers and the audience, quick ad libs, and gentle humor.

Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He has earned 18 CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994.

He is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five), and is currently second only to Brooks and Dunn for accumulating the most CMA Awards in history. Gill is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and has received 20 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male Country artist.

An avid golfer, he helped create the annual Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament (“The Vinny”) in 1993 in order to help support junior golf programs throughout Tennessee.

Besides being known for his talent as a performer, musician and songwriter, Gill is regarded as one of Country Music’s best known humanitarians, participating in hundreds of charitable events throughout his career.

Tickets will be on sale starting Saturday, January 31, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Punxsutawney Area Community Center office.

Tickets will be available for $49.00, $69.00, and $89.00 depending on the seats.
