The song is also holding top chart positions around the world including #2 and #3 on the German and U.K. rock charts.
Allen Kovac, CEO of Eleven Seven Label Group, Tenth Street Entertainment and Five Finger Death Punch’s manager for close to a decade adds: “From Johnny Cash’s, ‘I Walk The Line’ and The Rolling Stones’, ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ to The Eagles and Willie Nelson, country and rock have shared audience, and created some of the biggest and most successful records of all time. It’s time to bring it all back again for First Responders. Let’s tear down the walls!”
“We are proud of our nearly 12-year legacy with Five Finger Death Punch,” adds John Bowen, General Manager of Prospect Park, the band’s North American label. “We are excited to release a single that will open new eyes and ears to what we believe is an incredible song, interpreted with phenomenal skill by all of the artists involved. We are also proud of the conscientious nature of this release, in support of the Gary Sinise Foundation. Rock is dead? We don’t think so.”
