Forget what you may have heard about the laid-back country lifestyle. If last night's broadcast of the 28th Country Music Association Awards show was any indication, life in Nashville is every bit as frenzied as it is in New York or Los Angeles.Packing more stars into three hours than any awards show in memory, the CMA Awards show had so much talent on display that they actually had people singing from their seats in the audience -- no time for set changes, apparently. As such, it was a great deal for those who just can't get enough of country music on TV.Or even on the radio, since WPOC's Laurie DeYoung was named Large Market Radio Personality of the Year.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- --When I saw the first sign on Interstate 40 that told me Nashville was fast approaching, I spun the iPod wheel to a country playlist. I wasn't raised on this music, but it's something you can learn about later in life. Kind of like heartache, one of the genre's indispensable muses, I suppose. As I pull into town, I think I've identified the only original country song that's yet to be written. It's a sad tune with a whining guitar and forlorn vocals, and it's all about the Belmont Bruins.

WHEN LOVE FINDS YOUVince Gill (MCA 11047)Anyone surprised by the outpouring of enthusiasm over the Eagles reunion obviously hasn't been listening to country music lately. Nashville today sounds increasingly like the Southern California of the '70s, and few singers capture that reborn country-rock vibe as easily as Vince Gill. Cue up a copy of his current album, "When Love Finds You," and by the time Trisha Yearwood's harmonies kick in on the chorus to "Whenever Love Comes Around," you'll swear you're listening to some half-forgotten J.D. Souther ballad.

It must be sweet to wake up in the morning and be Vince Gill. Think on it. You'd be 6-foot-3 and movie-star handsome. You'd have the easy tenor voice most crooners only dream of. You'd quicken hearts with your swashbuckling guitar solos. You might, if you felt like it, write a new tune by lunchtime - possibly your fifth Country Music Association song of the year. Maybe you'd ponder the 22 million records you've sold or your 15 Grammys. Maybe you'd drop in on your buddies, Dolly Parton or Bonnie Raitt.

In yesterday's coverage of the CMA awards, an incorrect title was listed for a song performed by George Strait. The CMA's Male Vocalist of the Year sang "Blue Clear Sky."The Sun regrets the error.For the last couple of years, it seemed like the biggest reason Vince Gill was host of the annual CMA Awards show was to save time. After all, since he won most of the awards, why not have him up there on stage for most of the show?Last night, though, Gill had to relinquish much of the limelight to George Strait, as the laconic Texan stole Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Album of the Year from Gill.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Even if they had never played another lick, the Cherry Bombs would have left quite a legacy. More than 20 years ago, a young Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill and a group of their buddies played clubs up and down the California coast, catching the attention of such pop stars as Linda Ronstadt and Glenn Frey and cutting now-classic alt-country records. The group had spun off from Emmylou Harris' Hot Band as a vehicle for Crowell's solo work. In the studio it backed Crowell, his then-wife Rosanne Cash, Guy Clark, Bobby Bare and others.

It may be something of an exaggeration to describe Vince Gill as "a right jolly old elf," but there's no denying that he's a happy fellow.He's supposed to be talking about his Christmas tour (which plays the MCI Center on Sunday) and brand-new holiday album, "Breath of Heaven," but somehow, he can't stop laughing. It isn't that he's being silly or has been sniffing laughing gas; he just happens to be in an incredibly good mood.But who can blame him? He's about to spend the month of December doing Christmas shows.

As with any TV show, the annual CMA Awards broadcast aims to attract the broadest audience possible.And, as Ed Benson, executive director of the Country Music Association, admits, sometimes the CMA would try to lure more viewers by adding a few pop stars to the mix."Some of the things we've done on the show over the years involving artists from other genres have been done with the idea that it will help extend interest and draw additional viewers," he says. "Like that performance with Sting and Toby Keith last year on the show."

Is there any star in Nashville more affable than Vince Gill? After years of watching him show off his relentless cheer and low-key humor as host of the Country Music Awards, it's tempting to think of him as the genre's Bing Crosby, a performer whose easygoing personality is as well-loved as his music.Still, expect plenty of music when Gill takes the stage at Wolf Trap this weekend, touring in support of his neo-traditional new album, "The Key."Gill and opening act Chely Wright perform at the Wolf Trap Filene Center, 1551 Trap Road, in Vienna, Va., on Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. $18 lawn seating only.
