Skylar Grey Interview w/ Billboard ::
“….Super Bowl is the most-watched television event of the year, so these commercials are seen by extraordinary amounts of people. Did you notice a big response back in 2014 because of the huge audience?
Having a song in a Super Bowl commercial is such a great opportunity to reach a large audience. I made quite a few new fans when we did the “Coming Home” spot, and I’m excited to see what happens this time.

Do you have any memories of Super Bowl growing up?
I grew up in Wisconsin, so my family are big Packers fans. We always watched the
Super Bowl, but it was especially fun when we were rooting for our teams — and who doesn’t love the Super Bowl commercials?

You’re performing at a Super Bowl event in Minneapolis as well.
I’m excited to check it out. I’ve heard it’s a blast. I’ve never played a show outside in single-digit temperatures, so that should be interesting!….”
