MALE Country Star Shares #MeToo Story

At CRS this week in Nashville, one country star bravely stood up to support the #MeToo Movement

Vince Gill is sharing his #MeToo story with fans at Nashville's  Country Radio Seminar. The icon told a crowd at the Ryman Auditorium on  Tuesday he was assaulted by a school gym teacher in the 7th grade. 

“I  had a gym teacher that acted inappropriately towards me and was trying  to do things that I didn’t know what … was going on,” I got up and I  ran. 

And I don’t think I ever told anybody my whole life.” He said he  never had the guts to share his story, but the #MeToo and #TimesUp  movements gave him courage. Gill's performance was one of the only ones that night to receive a standing ovation.
