Vince Gill to Join The Eagles In July
Eagles are the 5th-highest-certified artist in the US with 101 million album certifications
Vince Gill will join the Eagles, along with the late Glenn Frey’s son Deacon, on their upcoming Classic East and Classic West festival dates in July. Gill and Frey’s son will sing Frey’s lead vocals.
“In my mind, I always thought I’d have made a good Eagle,” Gill tells the Los Angeles Times.
“But in a million years, I never would have seen this coming. It’s pretty surreal. I turned 60 recently, and to get to be a part of this amazing legacy of songs, that’s the greatest part of all this for me.” Vince Gill
The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. The band released their debut album, Eagles, in 1972, which spawned three top 40 singles: “Take It Easy,” “Witchy Woman,” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling.”
