3 Doors Down steps up for Scouts

– A spokesman for the Boy Scouts of America says 3 Doors Down will be the headline act at the Scouts’ National Jamboree concert this weekend.

Deron Smith told The Associated Press on Friday that the group will perform tonight at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in southern West Virginia.

The band replaces other acts that previously dropped out.

In March, Carly Rae Jepsen and Train canceled planned appearances at the Jamboree over the BSA’s exclusion of gays. Months of divisive debate led to a vote by the BSA’s National Council in May to allow gay boys to participate in scouting while keeping a ban on gay adults. The policy change is effective next January.

The band’s hits include “Kryptonite,” “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You.”
