Recently I had the opportunity to chat with Brent Smith, frontman for Shinedown.  He and Shinedown guitarist Zach Myers have teamed up for a digital release entilted Smith and Myers "Acoustic Sessions".  In the interview which will air in part on "Loudwire Reloaded" on Saturday Feb. 8th, Brent talks about the acoustic EP, and reveals Shinedown's plans for 2014.  Below the interview, is one of the videos of the songs on the "Acoustic Sessions" EP, which are all cover songs.  See and hear their take on Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters".  You can purchase the EP digitally only here.
