Watch Vince Gill Honor Mac Davis With Beautiful Rendition of “In the Ghetto” at the Opry

Vince Gill helped welcome attendees back to the Grand Ole Opry on Oct. 3 as part of a showcase that also featured Dierks Bentley, Terri Clark and Lorrie Morgan.

During his set, Vince paid tribute to singer/songwriter Mac Davis with a beautiful rendition of “In the Ghetto.” Mac, who passed away on Sept. 28 at age 78, penned “In the Ghetto,” which Elvis Presley scored a hit with in 1969. During Mac’s five-decade career, his songs were recorded by Elvis Presley, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Bruno Mars, Glen Campbell, Tammy Wynette, Avicii, Andy Williams, Conway Twitty, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and more.

The Opry’s show on Oct. 3 was its first with an audience since March 19.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
