Country superstar Vince Gill honors the late Loretta Lynn with a special performance of ‘Go Rest High On That Mountain’ at the Grand Ole Opry.
‘Go Rest High On That Mountain’ was made famous by Vince back in the 1990s. He started writing the song back in 1989 after the death of fellow country artist Keith Whitley.
Despite being inspired to write down the lyrics, it would take years before Vince was able to finally finish the special tune. Once the song was released, it quickly climbed to the top of the music charts.
‘Go Rest High On That Mountain’ went on to win 2 Grammy awards and the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year award in 1996. Over the years, the lyrics of the song have provided peace and comfort to many hearts around the world.
“Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done.
Go to heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son.”

I could have missed the pain
But I’d have had to miss the dance”
