Tickets go on sale Friday, October 30th for Aaron Lewis, coming to the Stiefel Theatre in early 2016.
Executive Director Jane Gates says, if you want to get to know Aaron Lewis, just listen to The Road. On his first full-length album, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist tells one story after another.
Echoing traditional country, some of those tales are hilarious and heartwarming, while others are pensive and personal. Nevertheless, they’re all equally powerful, vibrant, and unforgettable. For Lewis, The Road continues to wind and surprise like it always has.In 2011, the Staind frontman formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut EP, Town Line.
Highlighted by the success of gold-selling single “Country Boy” featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #7 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release.
A bluesy guitar twang bends into a shimmering refrain about “another day in paradise” that’s both infectious and inimitable. Lewis laughs, “It proves I can write a happy tune. It’s a story about me and the family going to our beach cottage on the weekends. It’s all true. We drive down there, cook striper on the grill, and dig our own clams,” he said.
“Life is circular. Country just came back to me. It’s like the acoustic thing. I did that before the band [Staind].
This is full circle because this was the first music I was ever exposed to as a child.” –AARON LEWIS
