Mark Wills was was asked to join Grand Ole Opry by Vince Gill on December 21, and now it’s been made official when Wills was inducted into the Opry on January 11th.
Opry legend and longtime member Jeannie Seely welcomed Mark to the stage on Friday night, where Wills started his three-song set with his Top 10 debut single, “Jacob’s Ladder,” followed by “Phantom of the Opry,” which pays tribute to Opry members who are no longer with us, including the late George Jones (whose jacket Mark wore for the special occasion.) Afterwards, Craig Morgan presented Wills with his Grand Ole Opry trophy. Wills then closed out the night with his No. 1 hit, “19 Somethin’,” marking his first performance as the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Some of Wills other hits include “Don’t Laugh At Me,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Places I’ve Never Been,” “I Do (Cherish You),” “Back at One” and “She’s in Love.”
