Vince Gill doesn't just possess one of country music's most versatile voices; he's also one of the genre's most nuanced guitar players. Yet as he'll readily tell you, he's not solely a country picker. His influences run from Atkins and Watson to Clapton and Page. "I fancy myself more of a chameleon guitar player than most people will perceive," Gill tells Rolling Stone Country. "So it may surprise people when they see me play with Gregg Allman or hear me play the blues or rock & roll." In his own words, Gill, who has played at every one of Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festivals, opens up about 14 of his favorite players. —Joseph Hudak
