06-13-13 The American rock band from Jacksonville, FL landed at Boston's only Roof Top Pool courtesy of WAAF Boston.

"Shinedown are becoming Kings of the Rock Power Ballad.  The kind of song where you find your arm reaching for a lighter once it starts.  The kind of song that could be great for a slow dance but kicks in just enough to make it seem a little awkward.  Must be their Duval County, Florida roots.  Lynyrd Skynyrd are from the same area.  One thing is for sure, Brent Smith's voice is for real.  No auto-tune there." by Mike Hsu
