MARK WILLS COMMENTS ON SHUTTLE TRAGEDY

The latest tragedy of the Columbia shuttle has a particular impact on Mark Wills.

In a strange twist of fate, Mark Wills' latest single, "19 Somethin,' " includes a line that pays tribute to the Challenger, lost in 1986: "The shuttle fell from the sky and the whole world cried."

"Like every other American kid growing up, I was glued to the television set the day that we watched the shuttle Challenger fall from the sky," Mark shares. "The seven men and women aboard were forever impressed on my mind as heroes. Now we have seven heroes who will never be forgotten."

"I hope that every time the song is played from this day forward, it will be a reminder in spite of all the sorrow, we have seven new heroes. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families for their loss."
