Shinedown Working on Next Album
Myers is used to playing arenas packed with 10,000-plus screaming rock fans. But for the month of March, Myers is turning down the volume and embarking on a solo, acoustic tour with fellow singer-songwriter and longtime buddy Chris Allen (Ingram Hill).
The souLLow Acoustic 2011 Tour, which kicked off Thursday in Toledo, Ohio, is totally different from a Shinedown show. For one, Myers and Allen play their own originals, covers and only a few Shinedown songs. "Shinedown is something I love, and I'll be a part of it forever. But I can't sing like [Shinedown lead singer] Brent Smith," Myers said in an interview with Gannett Media. "He's the greatest singer on the earth. I can't do what he does, so I couldn't do some of our songs justice. I'll do a couple of Shinedown songs, but not really the singles. Just the Shinedown songs that are my personal favorites." more on this story
