Actress and singer-songwriter Rita Wilson has teamed up with country music crooner Vince Gill to record a stunning version of the hymn "Count Your Blessings." This sweeping ballad reminds us of the importance of thanking God, a great way to usher in the holiday season.
"Every day really is a gift," Wilson reflects. "As long as we are alive, each day offers hope. Every person has endured some kind of hardship. That is a part of life. To be able to see and recognize the blessings that life also brings keeps me centered and grateful.
I can tell you I'm extremely thankful for the great Vince Gill, whose voice transports me to a place that is physical and spiritual. What an honor to sing with Vince, who has been a supporter of my music since he sang on my first album, AM/FM."
Gill, who has been long time friends with Wilson, adds, "When Rita started making her own records, I was lucky enough to be invited to participate. She's always kept me in the loop, and I'm always grateful to make a great friend. I really enjoy singing with her."
