Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill will host the America’s Opry Weekend Thanksgiving Special, slated to air on radio November 23 through November 27. The radio program will celebrate Thanksgiving and the beginning of a music-filled holiday season, with Vince playing some of the year’s biggest hits about life, home, and thanks. The America’s Opry Weekend Thanksgiving Special will also contain cuts from Vince’s new album, Guitar Slinger, and several of his all-time holiday favorites, including some he’ll be singing with his wife Amy Grant on the couple’s 2011 “Twelve Days of Christmas” tour.
Among the artists and songs included in the Thanksgiving special are Vince’s “Blue Christmas,” Dierks Bentley’s “Home,” Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” Blake Shelton’s “God Gave Me You,” Trace Adkins’ “Million Dollar View,” Carrie Underwood’s “Temporary Home,” and Brad Paisley’s “Winter Wonderland.”
In celebration of the radio special, Opry.com has added a GUITAR SLINGER section to the site, featuring an exclusive interview with Vince about the new album and a Guitar Town Sweepstakes offering guitars autographed by the award-winner and a three-day Nashville getaway.
