Its often easy to listen and accept the gifts that we're given and yet forget to express gratitude and appreciation for the respect and generosity that we've experienced. The first time I saw Shinedown was in 2002 with my two sons Mike and Chris. Mike was 16 and Chris was 15. During that show, I gained phenomenal respect and admiration for the depth of commitment that Brent projects toward spiritual awareness and love for each other. The powerful energy that the band generates within the audience and among themselves promotes unity that I've not witnessed in a typical rock show. Shinedown is NOT the "typical" rock band.

I have followed the band, buying music and watching your shows as you've grown in success and fame. In 2009 Chris and I saw your show in San Antonio, the third time we had watched the band live, living one of my most memorable father-son experiences, as we both attempted to mimic Brent's words through his unbelievable music range.

Tragically, Chris took his life in Jan 2016‎, a choice that we'll never understand or reconcile among ourselves. We'll always miss his powerfully positive outlook in life and his ability to make the worst situation a jokingly memorable one. In Nov 2016, I was blessed to get tickets to your show in Austin, and was once again in the audience with Chris' spirit, loudly singing the words with the same energy that we had done in past shows, but with tears staining my face throughout the show, wishing I could simply hold my son one more time.

This is not meant as a 'downer' message, but is reflective of the impact of your music and testament to life that you share with your followers, fans and friends. I hold Jesus Chris as my Lord and Savior, and credit His grace for bringing me through those toughest, darkest moments in dealing with our loss, but I want to let you know that your message of survival, resilience, and overcoming adversity also serves as a catalyst in recovering from some of the darkest days of my life.
