A Class Act
When Kanye West accepted his award at the Grammys he was a real jerk, rattling on and on about how he was going to be the #1 artist in the world and then he got ticked when they started playing the "hurry up" music. On the other side of the spectrum was Vince Gill. When he accepted the Country Album of the Year award from Ringo Starr, he was in awe and said, "I just received an award from a Beatle!" He then turned to Kanye West and said, "Ever have that happen, Kanye?" to thunderous applause. Mr. Gill's acceptance speech was short, humble, and patriotic. A class act.
