It was an ironic moment when Vince Gill appeared at Universal Music Group’s big show Wednesday at the Country Radio Seminar since Vince’s latest album, Guitar Slinger, is his last for Universal’s MCA label after more than two decades with the company.  

Explaining he was there simply as a “thank you” to radio, Vince went on to say, “For the first time in 30 years, I don’t have a record label,” adding, “Don’t know that I want one.”  Vince thanked his family at MCA for a “sweet ride the last 23 years,” before performing a song from Guitar Slinger, which was released last fall.  He plays the Opry Friday night, and returns the weekend of March 16 and 17.
