and her songwriting left
a significant mark
on this blogger as a teen.
Remember her crossover to pop?
The song was written for daughter Millie.
(Stunning at 50…and she likes to KICK!)
my sisters and i danced
to ‘Brick House’ with her
at an awards after-party in ’02
that completely rockkkkkkked.
Amy and Vince Gill have 5 kids, and one
sings beautiful backup on the 2Friends tour.
Caught her and Michael W. Smith in concert
in 1981 or 1982 and began learning their songs on piano
and performing in church.
Flash forward 30 years.
Just saw them both Saturday night for
a totally enjoyable and moving performance
Such a privilege to visit with
them before the show (thanks to my brother in law).
After sharing some vintage jewelry with Amy
she asked if she could wear it on stage!
Then she did.
How fun is that?
I’m told she wore the pieces again
for the Mpls show.
REALLY REALLY TRYING
But we must obsess just for a second about
thigh-high, like-buttah-leather boots she wore
which were CRAZY chic (see photo above).
oh lord, not my greatest hair day and…
here we have cell phone photography at its finest!
If you can see the show…GO!
(compliment the jewelry!)
If not, here’s a snippet of
one of my favs she performed.
Peace to you right where you are.
