In the earlty 80′s, Gill moved to Nashville and in 1989 signed with MCA records and recorded the album “When I Call Your Name.” The title song was the CMA’s song of the year, won a Grammy Award and the album went on to sell over 1 million copies.

Gill’s next album “Pocket Full Of Gold” also sold over a million and hit platinum status.

In all, Gill has sold more than 26 million albums, earned 18 CMA Awards, named the CMA’s “Entertainer of Year” in 1993 and 1994 and won the CMA’s “Male Vocalist” Award five times.

Gill also has won 19 Grammy Awards. He co-hosted the CMA Award show for 12 years straight and he’s a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
