“‘GET UP’ is a song about empathy, it’s a song about not being afraid to fail, it’s a song about inspiring others and now we want you to hear the song as it began,” says front man Brent Smith.
Stripped down and propelled by the undeniable power of Brent’s voice, the acoustic and piano versions highlight the raw vulnerability and poignant message at the core of “GET UP,” which became a crossover hit at Hot AC and has racked up nearly 40 million streams. Speaking to the human spirit in a time of need and inspired by Brent watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression, “GET UP” quickly became a beacon of light for listeners around the globe, connecting with both those going through hardships of all types and those supporting loved ones who may be struggling. “GET UP” landed the band on Live with Kelly and Ryan, was heard during the Walter Payton Award during the Super Bowl Pregame show among other television spots, has garnered praise fromthe likes of Forbes, Huffington Post, Salon, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Buzzfeed, Parade, Popdust, Grammy.com and more, and broke a new record for Shinedown giving the band the most Rock Airplay Top 10s ever and their 13th #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart (the second most in the history of the chart, tied with Van Halen).
The GET UP EP arrives as current rock single “MONSTERS” breaks into the Top 5 as it continues its quick ascent on the Active Rock Chart.
