I had the chance to chat with our old friend, Brent Smith, about the new record, touring, fitness, social media, the 20th anniversary of the debut album and more. Enjoy a couple of video clips from the interview and past shows, and if you feel so inclined, the entire interview is below.
With their recent single, “Daylight,” Shinedown has officially broken the record for the most #1 songs on the Rock chart, with a total of 19. This is an incredible accomplishment, and it’s a testament to the band’s enduring popularity.
Over the course of their career, Shinedown has constantly pushed themselves creatively, experimenting with different sounds and styles. They’ve never been content to rest on their laurels, and their willingness to take risks has paid off in a big way. With 29 songs in the top 5 and 19 #1 hits to their credit, Shinedown is now one of the most successful rock bands of all time. Quite an impressive achievement!
Here’s the entire conversation. Enjoy!
