1 Shinedown Shinedown Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith, Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd, and Barry Kerch.

Shinedown are a Really awesome Hard Rock Band there in my view one of the better of the modern rock bands of today their just highly underrated for how much talent they have! The Lead Singer Brent Smith 's Voice & Story defiantly gives you a place of inspiration to gravitate to is your ever looking for a success story after dealing with a lot of demons and over coming them! I've seen Shinedown live and there very Energetic and there super awesome they just need that big moment to shine even more Though opening for great Bands like Nickelback & Kiss should make them really big now!
