Vince Gill paid tribute to Mac Davis with a rendition of “In The Ghetto,” one of the iconic songs the late songwriter wrote for Elvis Presley.
The country music singer played a haunting version of the song during his recent set at the Grand Ole Opry last week.
By the time the legendary musician finished playing “In the Ghetto” in front of a black and white photo of Davis, the stage floor was reportedly filled with pin drop silence.
It was the first time that the venue staged a Saturday night music program live with an audience since the pandemic, though in a limited capacity.
Artists such as Dierks Bentley, Terri Clark and Lorrie Morgan also lined up to pay tribute to the late songwriter, who penned a series of country and pop hits.
Davis, 78, passed away on September 29 after undergoing heart surgery in Nashville.
