Vince Gill Notches 21st Grammy Win
Most Grammys Won By A Male Country Artist


Nashville, TN – February 13, 2017—Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill won his 21st Grammy trophy at last night’s awards ceremonies in Los Angeles—this one for Best American Roots Song.  Gill’s winning song was “Kid Sister,”
the title track for The Time Jumpers’ latest Rounder Records album. He
wrote it in honor of vocalist Dawn Sears, a  member of the band who died
of cancer in 2014.  Gill is a long-time member of The Time Jumpers.
“I wish you all would have had the chance once in your life to hear the voice of the woman I wrote this song about,” said Gill to the Grammy audience in Los Angeles.  “Her
name was Dawn Sears. And on behalf of myself and The Time Jumpers, we
got to perform a song  that I wrote to honor her.  It was one of the
greatest thrills in my life and one of the best voices you’ll ever hear
in your life.  I encourage you to find her voice.”
Apart from her work with The Time Jumpers, Sears toured as Gill’s backup vocalist for 22 years.
