To give you a little insight about With Arms Wide Open by Creed, we will start by shortly presenting the band and then jump up to the song’s details.
Known as one of the best hard rock bands from Florida, Creed was formed in 1994 in Tallahassee and it consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, Brian Marshall, Mark Tremonti and Scot Phillips.
The band offers us good quality rock, alternative metal and post-grunge music genres, the reason why they received Platinum awards selling over 53 million records worldwide.
The song we are talking about today – the free With Arms Wide Open piano sheet music, was released by Creed in April 2000, as the third single from the band’s second studio album named Human Clay.
Once released, With Arms Wide Open reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and is the band’s first and only song to top the charts.
The song was nominated for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group and won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.
With Arms Wide Open was written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp, with the production by Ron Saint Germain and John Kurzweg.
The song has a length of 4:36 minutes in its original version and 3:53 minutes in the radio version.
With Arms Wide Open was written in the key of C major and it is considered a power ballad.
The most beautiful part of the song is that it was written by Stapp when he found out he is going to be a dad.
So the original lyrics of With Arms Wide Open were composed as if he was going to have a daughter, even if he knew his wife was bringing a boy to the world.
