NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 27, 2016) – Throughout his long-standing career, country star Mark Wills has captivated listeners with emotionally charged songs that remain some of the most played on country radio. In the most recent installment of syndicated video platform, “The Test Drive,” Wills takes viewers for a ride down Music Row while opening up about which of his hits he feels connects most with listeners, what fans can expect at his live show and his appreciation of the Nashville music community.

Wills is known for chart-toppers like “19 Somethin’”, which spent 6 weeks at No. 1 and was named the second most-played song of the entire decade in 2009 by Billboard, “Jacob’s Ladder,” “Wish You Were Here,” “I Do (Cherish You),” “Back at One,” “She’s in Love” and the poignant track, “Don’t Laugh At Me.” With its heartfelt message of tolerance and charity, his poignant “Don’t Laugh At Me” received nominations for Single, Song and Video Of The Year by the Country Music Association.

“It’s probably my favorite song of the night to sing, because it has been so many people’s personal song. No matter who you are, no matter where you’re from… everybody’s been made fun of at some point in their life,” says Wills.

On the exclusive, all-new episode of “The Test Drive,” Mark Wills also opens up about preserving the integrity of his music, explaining that the band fans hear on the road is the same one he uses when recording new material in-studio.

“I want the guys that you hear on the radio to be the same guys that you see when you come see the show.”
