NASHVILLE, TN Monday Jul.3.2006 / -- Vince Gill has been working on a new album for nearly two years, and after that much effort you say to yourself, "this better be good."

Well, on October 17th it's good news indeed for Gill fans because the long awaited new CD is actually Vince Gill-times-four in this new 4-CD set titled "These Days."

The set is described as a "tour de force that displays Gill's mastery of lyrics and musical styles, ranging from traditional country and bluegrass to jazz and rock."

"I started looking at all these songs I had," says Gill, "and going, 'Shoot, I want to record that song, and I want to record that song.' I just kept checking with the other musicians to see if they were available. I had no deadlines, no rules or anything like that. So I just kept trying songs."

Joining him on the project, artists he likes to work with and some he wanted to work with. "I never try to fill up my records with famous people," Gill says. "I try to fill them up with the most talented people I can find on the face of the earth."

By the time the project was completed, that group included Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Diana Krall, Rodney Crowell, Phil Everly, the Del McCoury Band, Emmylou Harris, John Anderson, Lee Ann Womack, Jenny Gill, Amy Grant, LeAnn
Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Guy Clark, Trisha Yearwood, Bekka Bramlett, Michael McDonald, steel-guitar master Buddy Emmons and many other musical standouts.
