Vince Gill has been one of the best-known and frequently recorded songwriters

and performers in contemporary country music for over 40 years.

Gill's album I Still Believe in You, which debuted in September 1992, celebrates

its 30th anniversary this month. "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away,"

the sixth single, reached its highest point on the chart, peaking at number 2.

The album has received a five-time platinum certification.

A plaque honoring the album's 30-year anniversary was presented to

Vince Gill backstage at last night's recording of CMT Giants: Vince Gill,

which airs Friday, September 16 at 9 p.m. CMT. And at 8 pm.
