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. Critical praise followed: People's Chuck Arnold said, "He proves to be a natural on nostalgic ballads like 'The Story Never Ends,' (March 14, 2011)," while the Associated Press' Michael McCall wrote, "He injects a flavor of his own into a polished, commercial Country sound in a way that could win over Country fans who've never heard of Staind (February 28, 2011)."
