Mark Wills is officially the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. The country singer was formally inducted into the country music institution on Friday night (Jan. 11) in Nashville.
Wills' close friend Craig Morgan, who has been an Opry member for ten years, was on hand to induct him during a sold-out show at the historic Ryman Auditorium, which was the home of the Opry for many years.
Vince Gill surprised Wills with an invitation to join the Opry live onstage during a show on Dec. 21.
