Signed Bass Giveaway For Charity!!!

Ok people, listen up!! 


For those who don't know, I will be playing in a celebrity softball game this Saturday, October 1st in Charleston, SC with my fellow Charlestonians, Bill Murray and Darius Rucker (to name a few).  I appreciate all the love and support you guys have already shown via Facebook and through your donations towards the fight against childhood obesity!  


Due to your support, I and my friends over at Dean have decided to give away to the highest donor one of my signature basses signed by me and Brent!  So how can you donate?  Simple.  Please visit and


Help Fight Childhoold Obesity!

Hey Guys!

I am playing in a charity softball game in Charleston SC on October 1, 2011 to raise funds to fight childhood obesity. Darius Rucker and Bill Murray will be the coaches of the teams and we have been challenged to see which team can raise the most money between now and this weekend! Below is the link to donate, as well as the website for Louie's Kids.

When you donate, write that you are donating on behalf of Team Piggly Wiggly or Team Darius (my team). Any amount helps to give these kids a fighting chance in life....and please share this and pass it on to all your generous friends.



Im pretty bummed out today. Today is the first and only time in three years that I wont be on stage with my brothers and family in Shinedown. As some of you may or may not know I am at home in SC rehabbing a back injury I sustained on stage during the Carnival of Madness tour. I have however enlisted the talents and services of my good friend and brother Corey Lowery. Corey has founded and been the bass player in such bands as Stereomud, Dark New Day, Stuck Mojo, and most recently Eye Empire.

Stimulate This...Stimulate That...

Hey guys!

Eric here. Just wanted to give you guys a little bit of insight into the backstage goings on out here on the Stimulate This Tour. First of all I am happy to announce that all of the bands are getting along. We all actually seem to like each other. I would love to be able to give you all some good dirt, but there is none. All of us hang out on a nightly basis. Shinedown throws a BBQ every night, and all bands are welcome. Everybody contributes and it's a great time! On any given night you can find Aaron from Staind and Brent sitting around talking.

Thank you

Hey guys!

First of all we would like to thank all of you for the love that you have been showing us lately. The audiences that we have been playing for this year have been absolutely overwhelming! It has truly been an honor to see all of your faces out there in the crowd. I have to say, we are so damn excited to see what the rest of the year is going to be like! We will be hitting the entire US again and will be making at least one more return trip to the UK and Europe. So, keep an eye on our concerts page to see when we will be near you!

Secondly, we need your help. Our video for Second
