He's just a perfect fit in my opinion.  The Eagles added Vince Gill to the band about a year ago in the wake of Glenn Frey's passing.  They play Mosaic Stadium tomorrow.  

I've always liked Vince Gill, going back to his days with Pure Prairie League, but I found a new appreciation for his magnificent musicianship when I saw him perform with Keith Urban at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival some 5 years ago.

It was about a year after that a friend of mine was on a family vacation to Nashville.  We had attended Crossroads together and he was wearing the t-shirt while he waited for his luggage at the airport.  As he stood there waiting for the carousel to bring his bags, a guy behind him said "Hey, nice shirt."

My buddy looks back and sees Vince Gill.  He said, "Did you go to that show?"

And my friend said, "Ya, it was awesome."

Vince said, "I know."

And then, they just talked while they waited for their luggage.  No selfies.  No autographs.  They just talked.

Vince Gill is cool.  So is my buddy.
