3 Doors Down to Release ‘The Greatest Hits’, Then Hit the Road for U.S. Tour

3 Doors Down are set to release their first ‘best-of’ collection, entitled The Greatest Hits, via their long-time record label Republic Records on November 19, 2012.  The collection features nine monster #1 hits that have been remixed and re-mastered, along with three all-new tracks. Billboard recently released the Top 100 Songs for The Past 20 Years, and  3 Doors Down placed twice in the Top 25, with “Here Without You” at #8 and “Kryptonite” at #25.  The lead single from The Greatest Hits is the brand new track “One Light”, which is all over rock radio right now.  The full track-listing includes “Kryptonite,” “When I’m Gone,” “Here Without You,” “It’s Not My Time,” “Let Me Go,” “Be Like That,” “Loser,” “Away From The Sun,” “Duck and Run,” “One Light,” “There’s A Life,” and “Goodbyes.”

3 Doors Down will stage the 9th annual The Better Life Foundation Concert on November 17 at Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. The foundation’s mission  is to make a positive change in the lives of children in need by providing food, shelter, and medical assistance to enhance the lives of children and young adults with special needs. The funds raised are distributed to organizations and hospitals that fulfill the band’s mission to enable children to develop their potential, achieve their goals, and become caring and responsible adults. In regards to the organization, 3DD frontman Brad Arnold stated, “It’s a blessing and a honor to be able to give back to communities in need through The Better Life Foundation. A big thank you to all the fans and sponsors who continue to support the foundation and the amazing work it does!”

The event is sponsored by the Mississippi Army National Guard. Future touring partners Daughtry will appear at the event, with this performance serving as the kick-off of the bands’ co-headline tour.  A huge collection of silent auction items includes signed guitars from 3 Doors Down, Los Lonely Boys, Korn, Bush, Theory of A Deadman, Godsmack, Staind and Chevelle, alongside drumheads from Nickelback and Josh Groban. From the world of sports, jerseys signed by Dallas Cowboy Miles Austin and Miami Dolphin Anthony Fasono, footballs from the Carolina Panthers and N.Y. Jets, a signed helmet from future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, and a football signed by legend Chris Carter.  These are a handful of the close to a hundred items that have been donated from many supporters of the the foundation.

After their charity event, 3 Doors Down are set to hit the road for a U.S. winter co-headlining tour with Daughtry. The tour will take them cross-country into December, with special guests P.O.D. rounding out the bill. An amazing collection of songs, The Greatest Hits will hit shelves on November 19, one day after the tour commences. So, grab a copy and grab your tickets…don’t Duck and Run! – by Matt Bishop
