Vince Gill

Nashville country star Vince Gill has been honored with a star on the Walk of Fame.

KABC TV reports Gill as saying: "I came out here with a banjo and a guitar to sunny Southern California to try to make it. I was inspired by Steve Martin, but the two things or three things that I never took into consideration was I could not act, he was a better banjo player than me, and he was funny."

Fellow Oklahoman Reba McEntire was there to witness the celebration. Reba said: "True friendship is what Vince Gill is all about, not only being a talented musician and a singer songwriter, great family man, loyal friend."
