Country music singer Vince Gill dedicated a song to Colin Whitfill during a concert in Louisville in March.
Whitfill died Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, in a car crash in Lebanon. The day before, his father, Charles, was at Gill's house making measurements on one of Gill's guitars.
Charles Whitfill makes custom guitars. His guitars have put him in a position to know people like Gill, and through that connection, Gill feels a special bond to Colin's death.
