Guide Review - Vince Gill - The Key
Dont Come Cryin To Me opens the album and immediately sets the pace for what lies ahead. The Grammy winning If You Ever Had Forever In Mind was the only notable hit on the record and its one heck of a string-laced waltz. Kindly Keep It Country talks about the way a traditional country song can impact a listener, especially the sad ones, in ways that most other genres cannot. My Kind Of Woman/My Kind Of Man was a nice moderate hit for Vince and longtime friend Patty Loveless. Let Her In is a song written about Amy Grant (Vinces wife) and how she made him feel after hed been hurt via a divorce (regardless of whom initiates a divorce, they always hurt). The Key To Life is an emotional song about Vinces late dad and the love of music which was passed on to Vince.
While not the most commercial record of Vinces career, it is probably his most personal. The Key features great songs done the right way and the CD stands out as a hallmark in Vinces decades old career.
