Since 1996, Mark Wills has charted 16 singles on the Billboard country charts. That’s an amazing accomplishment considering how the industry’s changed in that time. Wills’ 21st-century take on 20th-century country and honky-tonk continues to be a consistent crowd-pleaser in the fickle and fractured world of new millennium music commerce. Equally adept at teary eyed ballads and raucous, bar-room rockers, Wills’ sound is polished without being prophylactic, allowing the dirt and grime of blue-collar living to shine through. He brings his bounty of chart-topping hits to the Broadberry on Thursday, Nov. 13. Local shot-and-a-beer-enhancers Andy Vaughan and the Driveline and the Honky Tonk Heroes open. Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is $30-$35. thebroadberry.com.
