From Global News - February 8, 2018

Vince Gill had a powerful personal story to share during his performance at Nashvilles famed Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday, revealing to the audience that the origins of a song he was about to perform stem from a disturbing incident from his childhood.

I was in 7th grade, and a young, dumb kid, he said.

I had a gym teacher that acted inappropriately towards me and was trying to do things that I didnt know what the hell was going on, Gill added. I was just fortunate that I got up and I ran. I just jumped up, and I ran. I dont know why. And I dont think I ever told anybody my whole life.

Referencing the Times Up and #MeToo movements, the 60-year-old country music star opened up about his admiration for those who are coming forward to share their stories of being sexually harassed and sexually abused.
