A lot of people don't seem to know that Vince Gill was PPL's lead singer when they cut that tune...

I seen this post last night and had to get on youtube to confirm that it was Vince Gill. Learn something new everyday, but of course when PPL was popular Vince wasn't famous yet.

PPL was founded in 1969 .Amie was sung and written by Craig Fuller on their 2nd LP Bustin' Out. Craig, and the best pedal steeler ever, John David Call and drummer Jim Caughlin, all on the debut LP were from Waverly Ohio !

Gill joined in Sept 78, long after Amie became a hit and PPL became the top country rock band in the country.Vince sang lead on the song in concerts as Craig Fuller had departed years earlier.Obviously he wasn't on Amie when it was released in '72.

Gill and PPL put on some great shows together and recorded 3 Lp's. Firin' Up, in particular was a classic, one of many by PPL.

PPL fan from Floral Park is 100% correct. Vince Gill DID NOT sing on the studio version of "Amie." He WAS NOT affiliated with PPL at all back then. He certainly sang "Amie" in live versions later on. Give Craig Fuller all credit.

I don't vote for Amie as the best song on the album
