(Classic Rock) Shinedown's Brent Smith says they try to focus on their fans 100%. The singer says making fans their main priority reminds them to stay positive in an uncertain music industry. When asked if anything still surprises him after more than 20 years as a musician, Smith tells Full Metal Jackie:

"I've got to be honest with you, there's not a lot that surprises me anymore. I don't really take the calls anymore where somebody gets on the phone with me and says, 'Are you sitting down?' It's not necessary for me anymore.

"There's always twists and turns, and you've got to learn how to be as positive as you can be, because the industry can be really, really negative. But I always think about it from the fact of the matter that I'm still the 15-year-old kid in the middle of the audience looking up at the artist that I'm watching, and I'm still just enamored by that.

"That's what we really try to do day in and day out - make sure that the audience is 100% taken care of at all times." Read more here.
