I Know Who You Are - Janis Gill
Gary, if you listen to this song and read the 2003 Shadow of the Spotlight article, it really says it all. No book needed.
I don't know what the Come Into My World and interview about what was going on under your roof, calling it a hellhole, etc. It's now 2011. Why is she reaching back to 1996? It was a painful time for you both, evidenced by the look on your face when you were on videotape. And yet she was winning awards like the Minnie
Pearl Award and that shows her and Vinny, etc. Why not have some compassion for you at this point? She needs to get over raking you over the coals regardless of what happened.

Look up in the Tennessean April 2003 Janis Gill
tells her side...Shadow of the Spotlight. And yet their daughter sides with the Stepmom. Unfathomable.

Here's an excerpt:
Rumors and innuendo
Janis says the first person who told her the rumor that Gill was seeing Grant was her daughter, a seventh-grader at the time.
''I said,'Oh, honey, that is the funniest thing I've ever heard! Do you know what the word 'integrity' means? Look it up and you'll see their faces. Those two are two of the most upstanding people in our community, so that's funny that you would hear that.'
''We ended up laughing about it.'She is a Christian singer and he's Mr. Nice Guy. He is a family man. His whole belief system is based on that.' I got her to see how silly that was.''
A year later, she was confronted by the rumors a second time when her housekeeper attended Vince's concert, but she refused to believe those, too. Arnold says Janis remained in denial until 1996, when she found a note from Grant to Gill that said,''I love you.''(Arnold, who first disclosed the letter to People magazine in 1999, cannot discuss it because of a confidentiality agreement in the divorce settlement.)
''One day, I looked outside my window and there was Janis' car sitting in my driveway,'' Kristine says.''I walked outside and opened the door and said,'What's going on?' She looked like somebody had died. She had a letter crumpled up in her hand and she handed it to me and said,'Look what I found in Vince's golf bag.' That's the way it all started.
''It was like somebody took the rug and ripped it out from under her feet, because she was totally in love and totally dedicated to her marriage at that point. So we started trying to make excuses,'Well, maybe this' or 'maybe that. Maybe it isn't what you think.' But it went from bad to worse.
''Even though she kind of knew what was going on, she basically forgave him, but he didn't want that; he wanted out. And so imagine the emotions that it takes on you; you have been married for 17 years, you have a family and suddenly it's over.
''For the next two years, it was a nightmare. I basically gave her a pep talk every time she called me:'You're beautiful, you're talented, you don't deserve to be treated like this.' It really took her up until just recently to completely start rediscovering herself in a lot of ways.''
Her self-esteem took a beating during the last few years of her marriage. As her husband's desire waned, she began to feel undesirable.
''The more I talk about how hard I tried in that marriage, the more foolish I feel,'' she says.
In 1996, she filed for divorce, which thrust her even more into the spotlight. The tabloids paid for stolen divorce documents, so every legal maneuver was publicized
shadow of the spotlight

Too bad Brian never learned to read and that he can't see the whole picture.
There is no justification for the other woman to not fly away like she was asked to do by the first wife. She shouldn't have let that note get to her. She let
the other woman win. She should have made him divorce her. It would have blown over sooner or later.

He paid her to be quiet.
She looks peaceful these days.
She has a huge house.
She has a beautiful, talented, married daughter
and now a son-in-law whom she has know forever.
Things are looking up for Vince's REAL wife.
#2 is like the polygamist spiritual wives.
She can never be his REAL wife. He and Janis
were married about 20 years. You can't undo that in a day and a child is knot you can never untie.
Since: Jul 11

Someone's not happy in her second marriage....I'll give you a hint, it's not Amy.....ding, ding, ding....you're correct, it's Tex!!!!! LOL

Janis got divorced. That is correct. She was not happy in her second marriage.
Now she is free full-time to spend time with Jenny and Vince. They may not be married, but they are still a family and will always be. Second wive's club
is just someone to make his coffee, make the bed and to use sexually.
Baptist hillbillies are like that. Yes, they are.

Maybe he is trying to look better and lose weight so he can have his cake
(Amy) and eat it too (Janis). I don't know if she would take him back into her bed and life, but that would be just desserts!

That song nails my girl to a cross.
Hope Janis sings it as an extra on her
upcoming release, "Restless"
I'm a closet hillbilly fan.
I will buy it.
#11 Aug 21, 2011
You should go check her out on You Tube. I think she is over HIM and stornger than ever. She is no longer Blue to the Bone.
I think that fake Janis was probably second wive's club trying pretend like they are all one big, happy family. I'll believe what I actually read on Janis's official website. Ditto for Gary.

Just bringing these back that got buried in the debris.

Janis is just a very unhappy woman ... it goes deep from what i understand ..childhood issues with her dad......Her second husband (they were together from 0ct 30 2000 to Jan 27 2009) is writing a book as we speak ....Janis wanted to stay married to her second husband even though it was a bad relationship. He was the one who actually wanted a divorce from Janis after many years of marriage counseling ...She didn't really love him she just was embarrassed that Vince had left her and no one cared ...She also had and affair with producer Steve Buckingham and broke his marriage up of 18 years to Andy Landis. Janis made Vince and Amy out to be so bad and did the exact same thing. From what i understand the book should be finished in the spring or 2012 "I Know Who You Are" is the title.

Is that why the second Mrs. has gone missing and wasn't at the Grammy's?

Is anyone noticing the Mrs. begging off more and more? Maybe he can take Janis in her place or a cute little blonde. LOL
#18 Sep 8, 2012
Does anyone care to research the old songs and see how far back Amy and Vince were writing songs of PINING for one another?
Now that they are married, it seems the Thrill is Gone and it all Show and Tell...
#19 Oct 2, 2012
I can't find the lyrics to this song or anywhere on you tube.
I have heard it somewhere before and then it got buried.
I didn't forget though.
It was something about "you sing so beautifully when you are on the wing"
and something about eyes that shine...
but that she should fly away ...
#20 Oct 9, 2012
Amy is realizing what it is like to be the second wife.
It's not all peaches and cream.
I don't think V is compelled by her voice anymore.
He looks bored when she is singing and he is sitting behind her.
He barely even bothers to hit a few licks on his guitar.
He'll be laughing and cutting up with others.
It's probably good they are separated.
#21 Oct 23, 2012
I actually heard the song again.
To me, there is no doubt it was the final straw
when she asked V to stop seeing A around this time.
Basically the song says her spiritual face is a disguise and that in time
he will realize and return to her.
Basically, J is asking for her to do the right thing and fly away like GOD would want her to.
Is there any way it is not inspired by their unholy affair of the heart?
