Bradley Kirk Arnold (born September 27, 1978) is the vocalist in the band 3 Doors Down. He also played drums in the band's first studio album The Better Life. He grew up in Escatawpa, Mississippi, and currently lives in Jackson, Mississippi. His vocal range falls in the baritone category.
Brad had the following to say about his tattoo: "My tattoo is of Jesus hanging on the cross. It's made out of tribal lines. I didn't want it to look like a picture."
When Brad told his father that it was his voice on the CD, his father responded, "Go tell your mamma. She might believe you." He hadn't heard his son sing one word before the band's first CD was released.
He is the youngest member in the band and when writing songs, only does so behind the drums, as he feels that this is the only place that he can write. He is known to have tried to get rid of his southern accent, but he said it was too hard.
3 Doors Down's official website reported that Brad was injured on February 3, 2006 in a one car accident (he wasn't driving) in Mississippi. He suffered severe lacerations and bruises to his face but made a full recovery. 3 Doors Down cancelled two tour dates as a result. It was later revealed Arnold's injuries as caused by the accident were more severe than initially stated. Arnold needed 40 stitches to his face and his ear had to be reattached. Bassist Todd Harrell said, "If Brad wasn't wearing his seatbelt, he'd probably be dead now." Arnold's wife, who was driving the car when it hydroplaned, was uninjured.
In February 2007, Brad Arnold was a guest on the latest release by country music artist Tracy Lawrence singing with Lawrence on the duet "For The Love".
