When you met, you were sing -- you both were married to other people. You were singing. How did -- what happened, Amy?
AMY GRANT, SINGER: Well, we actually crossed paths many times before we actually worked together. We sang for the troops during Desert Storm at Fort Campbell. And I just thought he was a nice guy. And then we worked together Christmas of '93 and actually performed together. And...
KING: Something happened?
GRANT: And he -- I was just captivated with his personality. I just thought he was a great guy.
KING: And was your marriage unhappy at the time? I mean, did you think this would happen?
GRANT: No. No.
KING: So you were shocked?
GRANT: Well, there was nothing shocking in '93. You know, we worked together. It was great. I was doing a benefit for the symphony in Nashville. And he was doing a TV show for a Christmas show with Chet Atkins. And I -- and he -- his management called mine and said would she be on the TV show? And I said, "Hey, I'll do that TV show with him if he'll do the benefit with me." And that's really -- that was the connection of our friendship for years was doing these Christmas shows. And every November...
KING: So it was friendship?
KING: So Vince, how did you feel?
GILL: I mean, look at her. Any idiot, you know, would quite taken with Amy. And I was no exception. And just, once again, the connection there that was kind of rare was -- it was -- it felt -- everything felt familiar, you know, when I met Amy. You know, we would have a conversation and it was easy. Everything was easy. The hang was easy, the conversation was easy. And I just said, man, I said that's a great girl.
KING: And it was around Christmas time, right?
VINCE: Yes, Christmas of '80 --'90...
KING: Was your marriage an unhappy one?
GILL: I wouldn't say so. I don't think that, you know, it was not like -- it's not like something happened that we were both looking for a way to find happiness, you know, in...
KING: There was no depression, like search that...
GILL: No, no, no. I don't think so. I mean, it had its -- you know, it had its moments of good times and bad times, like I think most marriages do.
KING: And you have children from that marriage?
GILL: Yes, a 21-year old daughter named Jenny.
KING: And did you have a child?
KING: How well do they all get along?
GILL: Amazingly well.
GILL: A lot better than us adults.

Only Gary knows the truth and he's not talking...YET.

If you can say anything, why the silence?
#3 Jan 7, 2009
Gary, if you were invited to go on Larry King, would you go?
#4 Jan 7, 2009
#5 Jan 10, 2009
Come on Larry, make that call!'-)
I guess at this late date it doesn't matter whether they met in
1991 or 1993 or any of the rest of it.

Have you been offered any opportunities to tell your side on national tv?

Maybe you could ring Paula Deen's doorbell first. That would get you some exposure and some
GOOD EATS. If I didn't live here, I'd love to live in "Paulaville" aka Savannah, Georgia. At least that's my choice from the outside looking in. Any thoughts about Georgia?

Does Larry King not have your "digits"? You should get equal time! Why are they more important
than their exes?
#9 Feb 26, 2010
Have you made the rounds to Life Today or Studio B?
#10 Feb 28, 2010
What happened with the visits to Brian Mason? Did that end with Jen?
#11 Mar 4, 2010
So, did they really meet in the 1989-1990 time frame Vince gives or did they know each other before? Did Vince and Amy know each other when Vince and Janis bought the house in Franklin? I don't really care, but I see that question still pondered everywhere. Some claim that Vince relentlessly pursued Amy and buying a house close to yours would be proof of that.
Oh, BTW, just saw that Dana Delaney is on Desperate Housewives. I don't know why someone saying that she and Amy favor on the cover shoot for GH was so upsetting to you. Some think she looks like Mary Tyler Moore. Others say she sing just like Taylor Dane. Just kidding on the last one. Just seeing if you are paying attention.

7 posts before you realized no one was paying attention to you. You can't be that dense, can you?
#13 Mar 27, 2010
Maybe when one of your books comes out, you will get a call from Larry King
or something similar to Intimate Portrait or what was that other one?
#14 Mar 27, 2010
maybe; maybe not. What's your point?

Why is Chelssea Handler wasting her time talking about K8 Gosselin and
Dancing with the Stars? Chelsea turned it down because (clears throat)
she already has a job. K8 doesn't. Eight kids. No job. No husband.

And an Easter egg hunt. Why do the paparazzi still photograph this woman?
Because she has "mixed" kids? Big deal. So do a LOT of people.
#17 Apr 4, 2010
You are such a racist! Were you raised like that?
#18 Sep 4, 2010
Is Brian calling you a nobody? Shame on him. Even being with Yma for 20 years and having three kids is not what I call being a nobody. Having kids is a knot which cannot be untied.
#19 Jul 13, 2011
I'm watching a documentary that explains a n a l
sex in the Middle East. Hollar!
#20 Aug 20, 2011
How about if Oprah calls? She already called Shania, Fergie,
The Judds, Chaz, and a few others. It's worth a shot.
Maybe your Hyman A Week people could start a petition.
