3 Doors Down are about to head out on The Better Life 20th Anniversary Tour so they stopped by The Bobby Bones Show to share stories from their decades-long career and perform some of their biggest hits.
Talking about the beginning of their career, Brad shared how things got started. He was the youngest of 7 kids and sang in church, however never really stood out in his singing. His whole family was very loud and out there so he would just sing around the house often, something that was "never out of place" at his house.
Brad loved 80s bands and 90s country so he and a few friends would drive around the neighborhood in a truck his dad gave him and belt out all the good songs. When there were just 3 of them jamming with music together, they didn't have a lead singer. He decided to try out being the lead singer and all of his friends in and out of the band were really encouraging to him. Because of that, he embraced the lead vocal role.
Despite a lot of fan theories, their name 3 Doors Down doesn't mean anything significant. The name was melted together from three random words as a consequence of hanging out together one night. They have heard the many crazy fan theories around their name but reiterated that none of them are true. In the beginning, people even tried to "flash up" their look, but they all realized quickly their voices didn't match that kind of outfit. Their team even sent them to media class to learn how to interview and not talk quite as "country," but none of the group really paid attention.
3 Doors Down group members collectively felt blessed that they were able to have so many songs that connected with fans. They admitted it's still weird to be in the grocery store and hear one of their songs playing overhead. They credit some of their touring success to Creed, who was the first-ever band to take them out on tour and it was the only band 3 Doors Down ever opened up for. Playing with groups like Aerosmith, and ZZ Top, the group said they've gotten some inspiration from that those moments on the road. They were inspired by Aerosmith to do their full album Better Life from start to finish for a tour after watching Aerosmith do that with one of their albums. The Better Life 20th Anniversary Tour has several cities with tickets available now.
