NEW Nashline Episode -Interview With Vince Gill January 22, 2019

If you know Country Music , even a little bit you have heard of Vince Gill. He spent 15 years making a name for himself in the industry and had started out in Bluegrass music.

From Wikipedia:
"He recorded a bluegrass album, Here Today, with David Grisman and friends before signing a solo deal with RCA with whom he achieved some success including the singles, "Victim of Life's Circumstance" (U.S. Country Top 40) and Country Top Ten with "If It Weren't for Him", "Oklahoma Borderline" and "Cinderella". However his albums achieved only moderate sales and in 1989, Gill left RCA to sign with MCA Records. Here, reunited with Tony Brown as producer, he sold over a million copies of his label debut, 1989's When I Call Your Name, of which several songs, including the title track, made the U.S. Country charts' Top Ten / Top Twenty.[7] This was followed by the similarly successful albums, Pocket Full of Gold (1991) and I Still Believe in You, of which the title track went to U.S. Country No. 1.
In his career Gill has sold more than 26 million albums and accumulated more than 50 Top 40 hits.
Gill joined the Eagles on tour in 2017 and 2018, singing the lead vocals once sung by Glenn Frey

Here below is the interview as promised from the great people at Nashline.
This is great what Vince has to share and very kind of him to do this for upcoming shows.

Press Release: MPI MEDIA GROUP WRAPS PRODUCTION ON HIGHLY ANTICPATED DOCUMENTARY 'MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS'


VETERAN ACTORS IAN MCSHANE, WHOOPI GOLDBERG, ALAN BALL AND MANY OTHERS COME TOGETHER TO REFLECT ON DAN CURTIS' CLASSIC GOTHIC DAYTIME DRAMA

MPI Media Group today announced it has completed production on the highly anticipated
MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS, a comprehensive celebration of the legendary Gothic daytime series Dark Shadows and its visionary creator, Dan Curtis. The feature documentary, which was shot in New York,  LA and London, includes interviews with key actors and filmmakers involved in the undyingly popular story of vampire Barnabas Collins and all the eerie goings-on at the gloomy Maine mansion Collinwood.
The documentary was directed by David Gregory(Lost Soul, Godfathers of Mondo)and is set to be released this spring.




Narrated by Ian McShane(above) (Deadwood-John Wick Series), MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS offers insights from Curtis himself in addition to Oscar-winning writer-producer Alan Ball (True Blood), screenwriter William F. Nolan (Trilogy of Terror), author Herman Wouk (The Winds Of War), veteran actors Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday)and Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire), Dark Shadows stars Jonathan Frid, David Selby, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, John Karlen, Nancy Barrett, Jerry Lacy, Roger Davis, Marie Wallace, Chris Pennock and James Storm, plus other colleagues and family members.
In 1966, a phenomenon was launched when Dark Shadows debuted on ABC-TV as a daily Gothic suspense series. Airing in the late afternoon, the show attracted a massive youth audience as it shifted to the supernatural with the introduction of vulnerable vampire Barnabas Collins. Witches, ghosts and scary story lines turned Dark Shadows into a TV classic that led to motion pictures, remakes, reunions and legions of devoted fans who have kept the legend alive for five decades.



The feature-length documentary MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS reveals the fascinating history, far-reaching impact and lasting appeal of Dark Shadows with a compelling blend of rare footage and behind-the-scenes stories while also exploring the dramatic talents of creator-producer-director Dan Curtis. Known as the "King of TV Horror," the Emmy-winning filmmaker followed Dark Shadows with other iconic genre favorites including The Night Stalker, Trilogy of Terror and Burnt Offerings before earning accolades for the epic miniseries The Winds of War and War and Remembrance.
