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

Starting today, fans can preview the entire album on National Public Radio’s “First Listen” site at

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

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

Vince Gill, Tanya Tucker, Oak Ridge Boys & MORE Sign on for 2017 Country Cruise


More than a dozen superstars with over 400 hits between them will perform on the 2017 The Country Music Cruise when it sails through the Caribbean from January 27th through February 3rd, 2017. Vince Gill leads the superstar lineup, making a special appearance in Key West on January 28th. The party continues when Charley Pride, The Oak Ridge Boys, Brenda Lee, Lee Greenwood, Tanya Tucker, Moe Bandy & Joe Stampley’s Good Ole Boys Reunion, Dailey & Vincent, Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers, Wade Hayes, Jo-El Sonnier, Sylvia, Deborah Allen and Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll Boys join cruise host Lorianne Crook and guests as they sail aboard Holland America’s luxurious MS Oosterdam (known for its world class art and Waterford crystal sculptures) from Tampa, FL to Key West, Cozumel and Costa Maya. The Country Music Cruise franchise is the ultimate country music experience and has sold out every year since it was launched in 2014.

“There is absolutely nothing else like The Country Music Cruise for fans,” says Vince Gill, who appeared on the inaugural Country Music Cruise in January 2014 and will return for a special performance in 2017. “So many great country artists perform in intimate settings and guests have a lot of fun getting to know those artists a bit better, all on a world class ship in the beautiful Caribbean. Don’t miss it!”

“The Country Music Cruise… what a great idea,” says Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys. “Take a handful of legendary acts and a few thousand of the most appreciative fans out there… Throw in some Caribbean islands and lots of great food and BOOM… Something very special! It’s hard to imagine a cruise any better!” “I love The Country Music Cruise,” adds his bandmate Duane Allen. “Not only is the ship full of the greatest fans on planet earth — country music fans and friends, there are shows going on all the time, all over the ship, with more than a dozen top artists. Oh, and did I mention that the food is great? The StarVista people really know how to throw a party. BIG TIME!”

“We just returned from the 2016 sailing and had a blast,” said Mike Jason, Senior Vice President of Live Entertainment at StarVista LIVE. “The Oak Ridge Boys again kicked off the cruise with their high energy show, Kenny Rogers performed in the last year of his touring, Randy Owen electrified the crowd and Bobby Bare made a very special appearance. There were special Gospel shows, an Opry Show at Sea, a hilarious Family Feud featuring T Graham Brown and Johnny Lee, a number of incredible jam sessions and all kinds of interactive artist events. All the artists were great and the guests had any number of opportunities to meet and mingle with the stars. This was the ultimate country music party. We can’t wait until we sail in 2017 with more legendary artists, more great performances and more fun events. Most of all we look forward to meeting new friends and seeing old ones.”

The 2017 Country Music Cruise will be highlighted by dozens of live performances, bring back some of the most popular onboard activities from the franchise’s previous sailings and add a wide array of new artist-based events. Select artists will make special appearances at the Gospel Hour, during songwriter workshops, guitar playing seminars, panel discussions, Q&A events, cooking exhibitions, album listening parties, autograph sessions and many others.

Every person aboard the The Country Music Cruise attends mainstage concerts, daily activities and gourmet meals, all included in the cabin price. Fares start at just $1,975 per person. To book a cabin, call toll-free 877-266-2686 or go to
