Country music artist Mark Wills is going to perform at a free concert on the second night of the Association of the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition.

Wills, who has eight Top 10 hits to his name, will appear Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the ballroom at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., where AUSA’s meeting takes place.

Anyone who has a badge to attend the AUSA meeting will be allowed into the concert, which is sponsored by Veterans United, a lender specializing in veterans’ home loans.

Wills, who frequently performs at military-related events, broke into the music business in 1996 with the release of his first album. In 1999, he received the Academy of Country Music award as top male vocalist. His big singles include “Jacob’s Ladder” in 1996, “Don’t Laugh at Me” in 1998, “Almost Doesn’t Count” in 2000, “Take it All Out on Me” in 2008 and “You’re My Home” in 2015.

The U.S. Army Band Downrange, which plays popular music including rock, pop, country, R&B and patriotic tunes, will be the opening act for Wills.

A cash bar will be available for the concert, which is expected to end at 9 p.m.
