Vince Gill Set to Release ‘Down to My Last Habit’

vince gill

There’s a new synonym for “everywhere” and it’s “Vince Gill.”

Thanks to the excitement being generated by the Feb. 12th release of his new album—Down To My Last Bad Habit—Vince will be involving fans more intimately in more ways than ever before.

“Take Me Down,” the first single from the album, features vocal assists by Little Big Town and has already been shipped to radio. “A masterful appraisal of the volcanic force of love,” one critic calls it. Hear it at http://www.npr.org/2015/11/19/456382190/songs-we-love-vince-gill-take-me-down.

Starting today, fans can preview the entire album on National Public Radio’s “First Listen” site at http://www.npr.org/2016/02/03/464899204/first-listen-vince-gill-down-to-my-last-bad-habit?sc=tw

Vince’s skills as a storyteller are legendary. A first of its kind audio-documentary, a Spotify playlist has been created to capture Vince’s engaging tales of the music business and the stars he’s worked with along the way—in three categories: Vince Gill: A Musician’s Heart, Vince Gill: The Vocalist and Vince Gill: The Creator. Listening to these inside accounts is the closest thing to being a guest in Vince’s living room. To listen, follow these Spotify links:

Vince has played, sung and/or written songs on more than 500 albums by other artists. And he’s produced projects beyond these. So what could be more natural—or delightful—than a diversion called “Six Degrees Of Vince Gill”? Fans can enter any musician’s name to discover the degrees of separation the musical figure has from Vince. Want to know the number of degrees between Vince and, say, Adele? It’s two. Check it out for yourself at 6degreesofvincegill.com.

The famed Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Nashville’s Lower Broadway, the city’s live-music center and most heavily visited thoroughfare, has been transformed into a special Vince Gill pop up store. It features a giant outdoor photo of the new album cover and inside there’s a Vince Gill kiosk displaying his MCA Records catalog. The store also includes other artifacts, such as limited edition Vince Gill t-shirts, guitar picks and more. It is the only store at which CD copies of Down To My Last Bad Habit can be purchased before the release date.

The Grand Ole Opry will celebrate Vince’s 25-year membership in that hallowed institution with two Vince-headlined shows Aug. 13th.

Fans can pre-order Down To My Last Bad Habit at http://umgn.us/2hbt.
