Earlier this year, a particular male country music artist received one of the highest honors you can get in the country music industry, which is being inducted as one of the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry!
This country music singer songwriter, Mark Wills, just so happened to also be performing at the Grand Ole Opry the same night as the Midnight Jamboree would be happening in Nashville, so he came on over to perform after his segment on the Grand Ole Opry.
When he talked about becoming one of the newest members of the Opry this year, he was very grateful to officially be a member of such a big part of the country music family and said it “was probably one of the best nights of my life.”
The artist played many fan favorite songs of his from his career such as Jacob’s Ladder, I Do (Cherish You), Wish You Were Here, Places I’ve Never Been, Don’t Laugh At Me and 19 Somethin’. Along with those he also did a great cover of Jack Greene’s song, Statue Of A Fool, as well as a fantastic melody of three songs from one of his favorite bands growing up, Alabama, which included tunes such as The Closer You Get, Dixieland Delight and Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler).
On top of performing all those great songs, Wills also played a new unreleased tune, The Night Ain’t Even Over Yet, that may be released on a new album coming soon! When he mentioned about making a new record, he said after the events that had happened in the past few months he said “it felt like it was time this year.”
As a surprise to the audience, Wills brought out two special guests during the show, one being a upcoming female artist, Sara Simmons. The other one was also a upcoming artist originally from Atlanta, Georgia, named Jordan James! For James’ performance he debuted his first song, Y’all Come Back Now!
