12 Songs, 49 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Vince Gill is one of the most well-liked and respected figures in the country world—a genteel and generous musician who adapted with aplomb when his role shifted from hitmaker to elder. One of his signatures as a vocalist is the way he lets tenderheartedness well up in his singing, but on Okie, he leavens his sensuality and sentimentality with social consciousness. Gill wrote most of the dozen songs on his own, and he and his co-producer Justin Niebank frame them with acoustic country softness and sophistication. During “An Honest Man,” “Forever Changed,” “The Price of Regret,” and other tracks, Gill openly grieves over the intimate consequences of human actions.
