Lansing, Michigan – The final headliners are here for the 2017 Common Ground Music Festival and they are Shinedown and LiVE on Saturday, July 8th.American rock band Shinedown have built their name on rock songs both brutal in power and epic in scope. Now, with their last album, Shinedown (Brent Smith, Barry Kerch, Eric Bass, and Zach Myers) veer away from that densely layered sonic palette and take a more direct approach. Featuring lead single “Cut the Cord” — a blistering track that shot to #1 on Active Rock radio — Threat to Survival finds the multi-platinum-selling band achieving their most powerful sound ever and offering up their most important album to date. They have sold over ten million albums worldwide, and have had eleven number one singles on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts, the third most of all-time, behind Van Halen and Three Days Grace.
The band LiVE had a string of hit singles in the mid-1990s including “Lightning Crashes”, which stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 10 consecutive weeks and the Modern Rock Tracks (now Alternative Songs) chart for nine weeks from February 25 to April 22, 1995. The band has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and reunited in late 2016 to tour with a stop in Lansing on Saturday, July 8th.
