About 3 Doors Down
Hailing from the town of Escatawpa in the US state of Mississipi, 3 Doors Down had a huge hit with their debut single, Kryptonite, in the year 2000 and have continued to release successful singles and albums since. The band’s debut album, The Better Life, went to No.7 in the US album chart and was quickly awarded multi-platinum status. 3 Doors Down took the prize for Favourite Pop/Rock New Artist at the 2001 American Music Awards and have received a number of Grammy Award nominations.
3 Doors Down initially got together as a trio in 1994 to perform at a friend’s party. After adding a fourth member, guitarist Chris Henderson, 3 Doors Down soon became favourites on the regional live circuit and began to receive substantial airplay on a local Mississippi radio station. It was the regular playing of the song Kryptonite on the station that led to a record deal in the city of New York. After signing with Republic Records, Kryptonite was quickly released as the band’s first official single and went on to reach the number four position in the US Billboard chart.
The Better Life was one of the best-selling albums of all of 2000 and spawned the hit singles Loser and Duck and Run, in addition to Kryptonite. The follow up album, Away from the Sun, released in 2002, was another big-seller and followed its predecessor to multi-platinum status by selling over four million copies worldwide. Taken from Away from the Sun, the tracks When I’m Gone and Here Without You were both big hits. In 2005 and 2008 respectively, the albums 17 Days and the self-titled 3 Doors Down, both hit the No. 1 spot in the US album chart.
3 Doors Down have toured extensively over their career, both as headliners and as support for other artists. During the tour to promote the album 17 Days, 3 Doors Down performed alongside Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band has also toured with ZZ Top and Gretchen Wilson. In 2003, 3 Doors Down organised the very first 3 Doors Down and Friends benefit concert to raise money for their very own charity, The Better Life Foundation. Artists who have performed at these annual benefit concerts over the years include L Lynyrd Skynyrd, Alter Bridge and Shinedown.
