Vince Gill Gets ACM Humanitarian Prize



Vince Gill will be named the winner of the Academy of Country Music's Home Depot Humanitarian Award, Billboard has learned

His generous spirit and charitable work finally earn musician Vince Gill the Academy of Country Music's Home Depot Humanitarian Award. The American country music singer-songwriter, as Billboard has learned, will be presented with the award on the nationally televised 41st annual ACM Awards on May 23 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena. The show will air live on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.

Said he is "pretty thrilled" by the honor, Gill simply remarked "I've been fortunate to receive a lot of awards. When they're about a song or a record or a performance, it's just really about that moment. This kind of award embodies a totally different spirit ... These are the things that make you feel like you've been a decent human. It's more about life and more about serving your fellow man and about the things that really do matter."

In related news, Gill reportedly is near completing his next album, which he hopes to marry the street in August or September. Promises it will be "quite surprising and eye-opening", he also hints that it is something that has made him "feel like a musician again."
