In this once-in-a-lifetime performance, the Grand Ole Opry took over New York’s famous Carnegie Hall for an evening that nobody can ever forget!
Taking center stage with two of country’s biggest legends, Vince Gill surprised the audience with one of his most treasured songs that he wrote in honor of his brother who passed away in 1993, “Go Rest High on That Mountain”.

“This is a song I wrote about my brother when he passed away some years back,” says Gill. “This song’s brought an awful lot of peace to an awful lot of people over the years, I had no idea it would but I’m grateful that people use it in their toughest times.”
Pairing with the resonant vocals and enchanting harmonies of Skaggs and Krauss during this heavenly performance, Gill had clearly pulled out all the stops for this special moment.
“True Bluegrass Royalty” – Randy Scruggs, Earl Scruggs, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs and Doc Watson … better call the fire department … it’s about to get real hot …
“Go Rest High” has easily become one of the most recognizable songs in country music and even earned Gill two Grammy Awards, while also soaring across the charts as an instant hit.
Panning through old lists again. "Go Rest High On That Mountain" by Vince Gill. Great song.
