Formed in 1995, Grammy Award®-nominated, multi-platinum Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down consistently captivates audiences worldwide. The quintet's many accolades include selling 16 million albums globally, receiving three Grammy nominations, and winning two American Music Awards and five BMI Pop Awards for songwriting—including "Songwriter of the Year." The group's debut, The Better Life, became certified six-times RIAA platinum in 2000 and was fueled by the success of juggernaut hit "Kryptonite." This was followed by 2002's sophomore album, Away from the Sun, which went triple-platinum and saw similar success with "When I'm Gone" and "Here Without You." 2005's platinum Seventeen Days and 2008's 3 Doors Down each earned No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, while Time of My Life landed at No. 3 in 2011. In 2003, the group founded the charity The Better Life Foundation. Ignited by the single "In The Dark," 3 Doors Down unleashes its sixth full-length album, Us and the Night, in 2016.
