Woodstock resident and country music artist Mark Wills has been inducted into membership of the Grand Ole Opry, one of the biggest honors in the country music industry, and a goal of his since he was a child.
“Vince Gill said it so well when he invited Mark to join the family last month, citing Mark as being one of Opry’s great supporters and a proponent of what the Opry stands for,” said Sally Williams, senior vice president, programming and artist relations/Opry general manager. “We are glad to call him family and look forward to Mark entertaining Opry audiences and sharing his passion for the Opry for years to come.”
Wills, a multi-platinum, 16-time Billboard single chart-topper and ACM award-winning artist will kick off the 2019 Woodstock Concert Series on May 11 at the Northside Cherokee Amphitheater. Achieving his first chart-topping success at age 23, Wills has released seven albums. The Woodstock resident has been married to Kelly for 22 years and has two daughters.
