Vince Gill is back on stage. The singer canceled a string of shows when his wife, Amy Grant, suffered injuries from a bicycle accident near their Nashville home. Amy Grant is recovering and Vince is back at Ryman Auditorium for a four-night residency. The shows conclude on August 7.
On the first night of the run, their only shared daughter, Corrina, joined her father on stage to perform a song for Amy. It was appropriately “When My Amy Prays.” The track is from Vince Gill’s 2019 album Okie. The song is about the differences between Vince Gill’s walk with faith and his wife’s. Amy Grant is one of the most legendary Contemporary Christian artists of all time. But faith wasn’t always easy for Vince.
In the song he sings: “All my life I’ve known of Jesus. But that connection never came. And when my world was torn to pieces. I still couldn’t call his name. But when my Amy prays, when my Amy prays. That’s when I see his face.”
Corrina has a tough time making it through the song, overcome with emotion. She said that she’s just like her dad. Check out the fan-shot video below.
Vince Gill discussed his own faith in a 2021 interview with CMT.
“While you may assume I’m something because of being married to this very, very prominent Christian singer, my life isn’t quite like that,” he said. “To me, it’s a really neat testament to we don’t all have to be the same so much to get along and like each other.”
Vince Gill and Amy Grant were married in 2000. A year later, Corrina arrived.
