July 13, 2007 — Mark Wills teed off on Monday with GAC's Suzanne Alexander at the White Columns Golf Course in Alpharetta, Ga., for a new episode of GAC Nights, airing tonight at 8 p.m. ET. But their game literally came to a thundering halt on the last hole when thunder and lightning struck.

Mark and the crew jumped into their golf carts and took off for cover. Just when they got the equipment and everyone safely loaded in the car, the clouds burst open and the downpour began. Mark admitted, "I do like thunderstorms, but only when I'm inside."

Mark's new single, "Days of Thunder," has debuted on the country singles charts and is quickly climbing. The song is from his upcoming CD, Familiar Stranger, which is scheduled for release in September.
