We never take these blessings lightly and we know these crazy times present challenges for all of us. Unfortunately, complications arose that we were unable to plan for. Even with the best efforts of everyone involved including my lovely wife Ashley, we lost our precious baby.

We are so heartbroken. Thankfully Ashley is doing ok and with the support of y’all around us, we will get through this.

We appreciate the immense outpouring of love that has come our way through this difficult time and for that we just wanted to say thank you from all of us. We love you all and take care of each other.”

Godsmack’s Sully Erna Recruits Shinedown, Papa Roach, Staind, Etc. Members For “Live From The Living Room” Charity Fundraiser

Sully Erna (Godsmack) has announced a “Live From The Living Room” fundraiser for The Scars Foundation. The event will stream on the frontman’s YouTube channel and the Foundation’s Facebook page on August 6 at 5:00 p.m PT / 8:00 p.m. ET and it will feature Godsmack, Erna solo (feat. Chris Lester and Máiréad Nesbitt), Staind’s Aaron Lewis, Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Zach Myers, Papa Roach, Saint Asonia’s Mike Mushok and Adam Gontier, Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt, and Sevendust’s Clint Lowery.

Erna commented:

“I had always looked for ways to give back and help others in some way after reaching certain levels of success in my life. But I could never really figure out where to dedicate my time and attention and what was important to me, or where I even had experience to offer. One day, I started thinking about my own life and being a survivor of such an extremely rough inner city and that’s where all my experience was. It was all the battle wounds and scars I’ve carried that made me stronger and made me the man I am today. Instead of being ashamed of my imperfections, or hiding from them, I learned how to embrace them and grow from those experiences. I want to share that with people and lend my stories, my experiences, and my theories on how you can overcome challenging times rather than letting them ruin your life.

And that’s why The Scars Foundation is so important to me. It’s personal. It’s my life. And it’s important that people who struggle with these mental health issues and ‘imperfections,’ or ‘scars,’ as we call them, learn how to embrace them, and show them to the world loudly and proudly!

I hope the work we do with The Scars Foundation inspires people to come forward and share their stories so that those stories inspire more people to come forward and break the silence and internal struggles.

Just remember: you’re not alone. And we’re all imperfectly perfect. Just the way we’re supposed to be!”

In addition to the livestream, fans can also participate in a charity auction HERE.

Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon Says His Upcoming Solo Album Is “A Lot More Soulful”

During a recent interview with 97.7 QLZ, Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon talked a bit about his upcoming solo album. The frontman said the following:

“It’s different. It’s got some rock in there, but [it’s] a lot more soulful. I think it’s even a little bit more radio friendly, if it’s okay to say it. Also, there’s some country in there. It’s a different avenue than SEVENDUST, but I think that some people who like SEVENDUST can hang out on the avenue and jam and still rock out. But I definitely feel like I’m going down a different — I’m just doing something a little bit different.”
