By now you've probably heard about the tragedy in Smyrna, Tennessee when one of the jets went down in a horrific crash that killed the pilot.

Hunter Hayes was actually there and witnessed the accident. The reason he was there is the part that will give you the frissons.

He was scheduled to take a ride in one of the jets.

Hunter took to social media yesterday to offer his condolences:

The tragedy today with the Blue Angels is so devastating.  My heart and prayers are with the pilot's family and the entire Blue Angels team.

According to reports, the air show is still going to happen, but the Blue Angels will not be participating.
