The Grand Ole Opry performance is usually a well-oiled machine. This past Saturday, the night’s first show went 43 minutes late. The occasion? It was a special celebration of Vince Gill‘s career and membership with the Opry.

“This is a pretty sweet night,” told the audience as he was joined by his family — wife Amy Grant and daughter Jenny Gill — as well as friends like Rodney Crowell, Patty Loveless, The Time Jumpers, Ashley Monroe, Andrea Zonn, Bill Anderson, Jenny Gill, Paul Franklin and Charlie Worsham.

“This evening is filled with people I hold more than dear,” Gill said. “They have made my entire life.”

The night’s second show of the evening got started a little after 10pm.

“Sorry we made you late,” Gill told the second crowd, promising they’d get the exact same show as the first crowd. “We were having a blast in here.”

Roy Acuff inducted Vince Gill into the Opry on August 10, 1991, and 25 years later he’s still a staple on the stage.
