Vince Gill Wasn’t First Choice for ‘The Heart Won’t Lie’ KLAW Classic [VIDEO]
I was so surprised to find out that Vince Gill was not the first choice for this song! He is a perfect fit!
The song ‘The Heart Won’t Lie’ was originally planned as a duet with Kenny Rogers, but his voice didn’t really mesh well with Reba’s and they just couldn’t make it work. Fast forward and Reba is planning a new record and remembers the song. She checks with Kenny and he gives her the song.
Co producer Tony Brown suggests that Vince Gill sing a couple of verses rather than just the background vocals that was originally planned. The result was a Reba/Vince duet and an amazing video! (Don’t remind Vince of the 4 day video shoot though! He wasn’t too thrilled with that part!)
Here’s you KLAW Classic for today, ‘The Heart Won’t Lie’ with Reba McEntire and Vince Gill. It was the number one song on this day in 1993.
