Blake Shelton Joins Members of Eagles and Guns N’ Roses for Charity Single
NBC Voice judge Blake Shelton is teaming up with members of the Eagles and Guns N’ Roses for an all-star rendition of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.’
The proceeds will go to a good cause-GoodNoise, a non-profit co-founded by GNR drummer Matt Sorum supporting “the gap between artists and fans and to benefit various good causes,” according to Billboard.com.
The recording features Shelton on vocals, Joe Walsh (Eagles) on guitar, Timothy B. Schmit (Eagles), and bass and Sorum (Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver) on drums.
“When you join Team GoodNoise, you’ll receive updates on drops and other important initiatives,” Sorum said in a press release. “We’d like to have a million members down the road to take on causes that impact us all.”
The recording spotlights the work of Miraculous Love Kids, with proceeds supporting the nonprofit music school and its mission to provide protection and educate hundreds of young Afghan women who have faced violence and discrimination.
“In ‘I Won’t Back Down,’ Tom Petty so powerfully wrote, ‘You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won’t back down.’ The girls and I are honored to have Blake, Joe, Timothy and Matt join us in spreading this message far and wide,” said Miraculous Love Kids founder Lanny Cordola via a statement.
