[lastfm link_type=””]Clint Black[/lastfm] recently had the thrill of a lifetime when he got a Tweet from NASA.  The tweet said: ”Astronauts and space station crew awoke to ‘Galaxy Song’ by Clint Black, played for the entire crew on their last day at station.” What an uplifting tweet if there ever was one.

NASA’s Facebook update was posted as follows: “The crews of space shuttle Endeavour and Expedition 28 woke at 7:56PM ET to ‘Galaxy Song’ by Clint Black, played for the entire crew.” Is it just me, or is it cool that NASA would play one of your songs for the astronauts?  Clint responded in a tweet by saying:  ”As a child, I dreamed of being an astronaut. And now one of my songs is an astronaut. I hope they gave it some Tang.”  iTunes downloads for ‘Galaxy Song’ have gone through the roof and Black has been added to the lineup of the CMA Fest, where it’s expected he’ll perform ‘Galaxy Song.’ Looks like NASA unintentionally launched a promotional campaign for a Clint Black tune.
