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.
