Paragon Casino Resort is pleased to announce that country music star Vince Gill will be performing on the Mari Showroom stage Friday, February 11th at 9:00pm. Doors open at 8:00pm, with tickets available for $60.00 each and currently on sale.
Gill moved to Nashville in 1983 to pursue his dream of becoming a country music singer. In 1989, Gill signed with MCA and released the album When I Call Your Name. While the debut single “Oklahoma Swing” (a duet with Reba McEntire) reached the Top 20, it was the title cut that firmly established the singer as a new force on the Country Music scene. The song peaked at No. 2 and earned Gill his first CMA Award (Single of the Year) and his first Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance) in 1990.
Today, Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He has earned 18 CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994. He is tied with George Strait for having won the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five), and is currently second only to Brooks and Dunn for accumulating the most CMA Awards in history. Gill is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and has received 19 Grammy Awards to date, the most of any male Country artist. In August of 2007, the Country Music Association inducted Gill as the newest members of the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame.
The down-to-earth singer is sure to impress Marksville’s country fans with hits such as “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away,” “One More Last Chance,” “Tryin’ to Get Over You,” “No Future in the Past,” “My Pretty Little Adrianna,” “Worlds Apart,” “You and You Alone,” “A Little More Love” and “Feels Like Love.”
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.com, the LA 1 Market, or by calling (800) 946-1946. For more information about other upcoming events at Paragon Casino Resort, please visit www.paragoncasinoresort.com.
