Vince Gill and Amy Grant opened the ’08 Senior Open golf tournament last night, the most big hearted couple I have ever seen on stage.
They were performing in support of Challenge Aspen, an education and recreation facility designed to give people with disabilities a chance to take their lives up a notch, year round.
As light hearted as they were big hearted, Vince was full of stories and one liners.
Kim, their backup singer, had a talent for impersonating Cher. She sang an example and then Amy remarked on how Cher was an early influence. Vince quipped with something to the effect of “yeah, and now we’re Sonny and Cher”. He got a great laugh out of the crowd and a quirk “not quite, honey” look from Amy.
Rock on Vince and Amy, Sonny and Cher aint got nothin on y’all.
