Jim Wright Captures Vince Gill and Amy Grant for AARP
Jim Wright photographs Nashville music royalty Vince Gill and Amy Grant for the May/June 2011 issue of AARP Magazine. Inside the magazine, the country music singer and his contemporary Christian gospel singer wife discuss their path to happiness and how they make their eleven-year-old marriage work.
Wright captured the couple at Tootsie's, a legendary Nashville dive bar. The bar has long been a hangout for country music superstars who performed across the street at the Ryman auditorium. Music legends like Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson got their start playing on the bar's stage. The location was the logical choice for the shoot as it is warm and intimate yet full of the history of Nashville music. Wright has photographed Gill and Grant before with their extended family. This time he says, "it was nice just to be able to concentrate on the two of them and really try to show how much in love they are."
