Gavin Shane DeGraw, is an excellent singer/songwriter, but an even greater advertiser of his talents within the music world. In 2003, Gavin made his smartest decision to use his hit single, I Don’t Wanna Be as the theme song for the new hit drama One Tree Hill. Every episode began with Gavin bellowing his anthem into the music industry.
As the show just celebrated it’s ninth season this past April, DeGraw couldn’t help but be thankful and grateful for his success through this shows publicity and advertising. He made appearances in episodes, toured with the actors and singers of the show and had his music playing on several occasions throughout the series. This is a smart publicity and a decision I’m sure Gavin would never regret.
