VINCE GILL and PATTI LOVELESS - George Jones' Funeral

I will never forget being in Page Auditorium rehearsing for the Duke Children's Golf Classic Concert when Vince Gill and Amy Grant came in to sound check before the performance.

The theatre was empty with the exception of of their crew and a few of us from the Classic staff.  Vince walked on stage, the meekest man you ever want to meet.  He picked up his guitar and strummed one chord, and the whole room changed color and suddenly had a warm glow that never went away until he left the stage.  This is what he sang that day, so it's especially special to me, as well.
