LOS ANGELES - February 28, 2023 — Good news from GoodNoise. -HERE Today, the philanthropic music and arts platform,, will celebrate its launch with the premiere of an all-star cover of Tom Petty’s iconic anthem, I Won’t Back Down. The powerful track, approved by the Tom Petty Estate, features country superstar Blake Shelton on lead vocals, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit from The Eagles on guitar and bass, and Matt Sorum from Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver on drums. The new recording also spotlights Miraculous Love Kids - HERE, a nonprofit music school that has protected and educated hundreds of young women who have faced harsh violence and extreme gender discrimination in their native Afghanistan. In their young lives, they’ve experienced atrocities, been denied access to basic education and survived attacks from suicide bombings that killed family members. After the Taliban regained control of Afghanistan in the summer of 2021, core members of the group left their homeland, and underwent harrowing journeys in order to find safety and a new life in neighboring Pakistan. For these girls, music is healing, and the ability to sing and play guitar is a transformative skill.

“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,” says musician Lanny Cordola, who founded Miraculous Love Kids in 2015 as a 501(c)(3) organization.
