Apparantly someone in the audience was keeping up with the game, as well, because about an hour later a fan yelled out, "The Preds won!" Vince acknowledged the news with a wide grin and a "thank you."
The country legend invited many of his friends to join him at the concert, which raised money for the Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee, including famed songwriter Don Schlitz, John Anderson, Becca Bramlett, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris and big band drummer Duffy Jackson. The Time Jumpers, the group Vince plays with every Monday at Nashville's Station Inn, also joined for a few songs. "These are some of the best pickers anywhere," Vince said, introducing the group. "The reason I love playing with them is I can be just a musician and I don't have to talk between songs!"
Vince announced that he has a new album coming out this fall with the Time Jumpers.
