Mark Wills gives away song
Tuesday, July 14, 2009
– Mark Wills recently launched a blog supporting his current single, Entertaining Angels,
where fans are sharing stories about how they've entertained angels in their lives.
The singer recorded the song because it was inspired by one of his favorite Bible verses: Hebrews 13:2, "Do not forget to entertain strangers for by doing this some people have entertained angels without knowing it." Wills explained, "The song reminded me of my early playing days at the Buckboard Bar. 'Between the bar stools and pools tables' all the regulars would share their own life stories. It can be easy to feel sorry for yourself and your circumstances until you hear everyone else's struggles. All of sudden all your 'problems seem so small."
As a thank you for sharing these very personal story with others, Wills is giving a free download of the song at http://www.markwillsangels.com.

Mark Wills is king of the mid-tempo country ballad, and all the necessary proof is right here in the plodding of this greatest hits package.
