Possible Creed Acoustic CD in the Works

Creed has tentative plans to release an acoustic album in 2011, a project that singer Scott Stapp says fans have requested for years. Stapp also gave some hints about what the record might contain: "It's something we always wanted to do, you know. It would be our favorites, you know, the ones that the fans love, and then songs that we've learned over the years that might shock some people because they're so maybe heavy or fast or intense. But when we strip 'em down and play it acoustic it's a whole 'nother vibe, it's a whole 'nother thing.
