Vince Gill is back on the charts with the first single “The Reason Why” from his forthcoming 4-cd set, These Days. Vince says his original intent was just to do one album, but “I just got in the studio and was starting to make this record, and I kept saying, well, I wrote this song, and I’d sure like to hear how it would turn out. And everyone was available, so I just kept recording songs.
About four or five weeks later, I had recorded 31 songs. I was looking at a poster of Beatles releases and saw they had released 3 different albums all within a year, and that’s unheard of these days. I thought each of these songs you could put on their own record. So I went to the record company and said ‘How about we try something different?’ and they were all for it. They sent me back in to record one more record. I’m very proud of the project.” These Days is in stores October 17, 2006.
