The outing is in support of his new album, which hits shelves in February, and will find Gill playing theatres and clubs across the States.

And about that album. It’ll be Gill’s first in more than two years. The tentative title is This Old Guitar And Me. Gill’s official fan club Web site is previewing four of the 17 new songs and making them available for download. Those not a member of the fan club will have to wait until February 4 to get their hands on the disc.

Another benefit for Vince Gill Fan Club members is the ticket presale. Many of the new shows will be made available for members ahead of time. Check for further information.

Aside from a Christmas tour with his wife Amy Grant, Gill hasn’t performed much in recent years. His last full-length tour was back in 1999 – just before his last album, Let’s Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye (2000).
