SR 695                                             LC 21 5024 
                             A RESOLUTION 
  1- 1  Recognizing Mark Wills; and for other purposes. 
  1- 2  WHEREAS, from the time he was a toddler in Marietta, Mark 
  1- 3  Willis has entertained those around him with his amazing 
  1- 4  singing voice, and he was apt to burst into song at any 
  1- 5  time; and 
  1- 6  WHEREAS, as he grew older, his music matured and became more 
  1- 7  serious until, at the tender age of 17, he landed a gig 
  1- 8  fronting the stage at the Buckboard, a honky-tonk in 
  1- 9  Marietta, a gig that lasted for years of five-nights-a week 
  1-10  performances, until he was discovered and signed by Mercury 
  1-11  Nashville producers Carson Chamberlain and Keith Stegall; 
  1-12  and 
  1-13  WHEREAS, Mark is managing his career with a maturity that 
  1-14  belies his young age, avoiding the pitfalls that trip up 
  1-15  many young artists, because to Mark the music is more 
  1-16  important than the trappings of being an acclaimed artist, 
  1-17  and he figures that if he takes care of the music, 
  1-18  everything else will fall into place; and 
  1-19  WHEREAS, it is right and proper that this young man be 
  1-20  recognized for his dedication to his music and for the 
  1-21  pleasure he gives to his listeners. 
  1-23  members of this body recognize Mark Wills for his many 
  1-24  accomplishments and wish him success in the future. 
  1-25  BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Senate is 
  1-26  authorized and directed to transmit an appropriate copy of 
  1-27  this resolution to Mark Wills.
