ABOUT AARON LEWIS:
Aaron Lewis, frontman for multi-platinum selling rock band Staind, is heading back to his country roots with the release of his first full-length solo album, The Road, on November 13, 2012. Echoing traditional country, The Road is full of heartwarming personal stories that are fun, powerful, pensive and unforgettable. Produced by the legendary Grammy-winning James Stroud, and all but one song written by Lewis, the Staind frontman believes the album and the songs speak for themselves, telling a very personal story that is all about his life experiences.

Lewis made his journey to the country scene in 2011 with the release of his debut EP, Town Line, and the success of the gold-selling single “Country Boy,” featuring legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels. The seven-song EP reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 upon its release. Lewis finished the year with nominations from the Academy of Country Music for “Vocal Event of the Year,” as well as two CMT nominations for “Breakthrough Video of the Year” and “Collaborative Video of the Year,” proving him to be a real “Country Boy.” For more information, please visit www.aaronlewismusic.com.
