Vince Gill has postponed several upcoming shows due to being hospitalized with a kidney stone. Gill was scheduled to perform alongside Ricky Skaggs at the 2018 CMA Awards, but was forced to cancel that appearance at the last minute after being hospitalized. Brothers Osborne guitarist John Osborne revealed on the red carpet that Gill had a kidney stone, and Brothers Osborne ended up filling in for Gill, along with Keith Urban. Gill’s scheduled show on Thursday, 11/15 at the Alabama Theatre in Birmingham and his show on Friday, 11/16 at the Stifel Theatre in St. Louis were both cancelled, with cancellations through the weekend also expected.

Gill’s next scheduled live dates are 12 Christmas shows that he is slated to perform with his wife, Amy Grant, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Nov. 28-29, Dec. 3, Dec. 5-6, Dec. 12-13 and Dec. 16-20.
