3 Doors Down Frontman Releases Solo Record!
3 Doors Down frontman and celebrated songwriter BRAD ARNOLD was preparing earlier this year to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the band's 2000 debut album, the certified seven-times RIAA platinum The Better Life.
But with the pandemic putting the Grammy Award®-nominated Mississippi rock band's plans on hold, BRAD has used the quarantine to write and record his first solo record "Wicked Man." This powerful song has been released today on his new Wild at Heart label.
BRAD was inspired to write "Wicked Man" about the times we are living in. With his instantly distinctive vocals, BRAD unflinchingly sings: "They keep us entertained inside a world before our eyes/A never-ending circus to distract us from their lies." Read more about the song in the Q&A below.
"Wicked Man" was recorded at Rivergate Studio in Hendersonville, TN and produced by 3DD drummer Greg Upchurch, who also wrote the music to the song. "I hope people like the song," says BRAD. "I hope they take something from it."
BRAD ARNOLD takes great pride in everything that 3 Doors Down has achieved. Formed in 1996, the band has captivated audiences worldwide. Their many accolades include selling 20 million albums globally, receiving a Grammy nomination, two American Music Awards, and five BMI Pop Awards for songwriting, including "Songwriter of the Year."The rocker's charitable arm, The Better Life Foundation (TBLF), has donated over $3 million dollars to veterans, children, women's and humanitarian relief efforts domestically and around the globe.
