Vince Gill and Little Big Town take the stage. Then they sing lyrics about the Lord
Vince Gill joined Little Big Town on stage to perform Why Me Lord.
Little Big Town was recently inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, as reported by American Web Media.
The members of the popular group are Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet.
Grand Ole Opry is one of country music’s biggest achievements. The huge event is absolutely a night to remember every time a star or a group is being enlisted.
The country music stars who are in the membership list includes Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells, Hank Williams, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, the Dixie Chicks, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, and Alan Jackson.
When Little Big Town was inducted, they were joined by Vince Gill, who has achieved commercial success as a country singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.
Gill shot to fame as a frontman to the country rock band Pure Prairie League in the 1970s and as a solo artist beginning in 1983.
He has released more than 20 studio albums and has sold more than 26 million albums so far.
Before their performance, Gill was told not to sing about Jesus. But they broke the rule by performing Why Me Lord, which was originally written and recorded by country legend, Kris Kristofferson in 1972.
They belted out one of the most unforgettable performances of the religious song.
According to American Web Media, their voices compliment one another as they sang the following lyrics:
“What have I ever done to deserve. Even one of the pleasures I’ve known? Tell me, Lord. What did I ever do to deserve loving You. And the kindness You’ve shown? So help me Jesus, my soul’s in Your hand. Jesus, my soul’s in Your hand.”
Though Little Big Town took over almost the whole performance, Gill’s voice can be heard powering through in the background.
The crowd erupted in applause and cheering as soon as the song ended.
