Hey guys, in October, Shinedown will be featured in a new HBO Documentary called Blindsided. See below for a little more info and a trailer.
For much of Jared Haras early life, he was only blindsided by things like a pop quiz or a tricky pass on the hockey rink. Then, when he was 11, Jared and his family learned he had a rare genetic disease that would soon leave him blind forever.
Directed by first-time filmmaker Talia Osteen, the HBO Family documentary BLINDSIDED tells the story of a devoted family thrown into turmoil by a childs eye disease, revealing how Jareds condition threatened to tear them apart, and how his indomitable spirit ultimately brought them closer together. The exclusive presentation debuts FRIDAY, OCT. 10 (7:15-8:15 p.m. ET/PT), on HBO, and TUESDAY, OCT. 14 (9:00-10:00 p.m.), on HBO Family. Other HBO Family playdates: Oct. 14 (5:00 a.m.), 20 (3:00 a.m.), 26 (1:45 p.m., 12:35 a.m.), 29 (3:30 p.m.) and 31 (5:00 p.m.)
Jared did not let his condition stop him from living his dreams. One of them came true when he met Shinedown, one of his favorite bands. Jared was able to jam with them, and as a surprise, he was brought onstage to play with them. He was blown away by the experience.
