LOS ANGELES — It's fitting 3 Doors Down are releasing "The Road I'm On" as their next single, since the Mississippi band is on the road at least through February.
The song, from the recently released Away From the Sun, is not necessarily about touring, however.
"It's just really about being alone," singer Brad Arnold explained at the American Music Awards (see "Missing Eminem Cleans Up At American Music Awards" or click to see photos from the red carpet). "Everybody feels like that sometimes, but at the same time, if everybody feels like that, then we're all in it together, which means none of us are really by ourselves."
3 Doors Down are hoping to team up with NASCAR for the video, "as long as I get to drive a car," Arnold joked in his thick southern accent.
The group's last clip, for "When I'm Gone," was filmed on a Naval aircraft carrier during a goodwill tour of bases in Europe and the Middle East (see "Navy Plays Role In 3 Doors Down's Operation Shoot Video").
3 Doors Down, who are nominated for two Grammys (see "Eminem, Avril Lavigne, Nelly, Norah Jones Nab Most Grammy Noms"), will finish a headlining tour with Theory of a Deadman just before the awards ceremony in late February.
