Mark Wills' list of accolades is his testament. Mark Wills is a multi-platinum selling country music star with eight top 10 hits to his name including "19 Something," "Wish You Were Here" and "Don't Laugh At Me;" all of which received nominations for Single, Song and Video of the Year by the Country Music Association. Wills won the Academy of Country Music's award for Top New Male Vocalist in 1998. In 2002, his single "19 Something" spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1, was Billboard's top country hit of the year and was the second most-played song of the decade in 2009.
"I think I'm at a point where I've seen all sides of me! I've become more aware of who I am not only as an artist, but as a father, a husband and a friend…and as a dad, I want to put out music my children can listen to; all in all, I take more ownership in it."
Supporting our troops is just one of a number of philanthropic endeavors Mark Wills dedicates his time and effort to. He has aligned with USA Cares to launch a national awareness campaign surrounding the severity of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Since 2007, Mark has been the spokesperson for the Children's Miracle Network and its annual celebrations.
A man whose appetite for life surpasses what most people can only dream of - a dedicated parent, philanthropist, outdoorsman, jokester - but, more than anything, else Mark Wills is an artist and, behind the artist, is an even better singer.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is a wholly treatable condition that results from a life-threatening experience in which the trauma survivor felt helpless. PTSD symptoms include insomnia, nightmares, flashbacks, emotional numbing, hyperarousal and hypervigilance.
