GILL, LOVELESS MAKING STOP AT TUPELO COLISEUM
By Terri Tabor
Country recording artists Vince Gill and Patty Loveless teamed up in 1991 for the Country Music Association’s top song, “When I Call Your Name.”
Now the two have paired up again, but this time on a tour that will bring them to the Tupelo Coliseum March 22. The concert will be Gill’s second appearance at the coliseum.
Gill’s CMA accolades include two consecutive Entertainer of the Year awards and last year’s Male Vocalist of the Year. He has also garnered six Grammy Awards, three ACM Awards and Seven Music City News Awards. With hits like “I Still Believe in You,” “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away,” and “Pocket Full of Gold,” Gill’s albums and videos have sold over 10 million copies.
With the success of her last album, “When Fallen Angels Fly,” Loveless recently has become one of country music’s leading female entertainers. The album includes the hits “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am,” “I Try To Think About Elvis,” and “Here I Am.”
