Grammy nominated and multi-platinum artist, Aaron Lewis is set to release his sophomore solo album later this year on Big Machine Label Group’s DOT Records.
Lewis made his country debut in 2011 with certified gold single “Country Boy” followed by the release of his first full length solo album, The Road. “Country Boy” featured Charlie Daniels on fiddle and a booming verse from George Jones as well as Chris Young striking a balance between classic and modern country.
Lewis’ introspective, personal and relatable lyrics are proof that country music is about lifestyle and values, not necessarily where you were raised. And as Country Weekly exclaims “…make no mistake, he is a truck-drivin’, gun-totin’ country boy.” Lewis attributes country as something that has always inspired him. Growing up in rural Vermont the singer/songwriter spent summers with his WWII veteran grandfather hunting and fishing. During that time, he developed a love for the land, the woods, and the simple life, which still permeates everything he does.
“My new album on Dot Records is called Sinner and will be out September 16th. I’m proud to say that it was recorded in Nashville with legendary producer Buddy Cannon, who has worked with many of the greats, including George Jones, Merle Haggard and George Strait. I’m excited for my fans to get to hear the definitive versions of these songs that they’ve been hearing at my shows for the past couple of years. I’d like to think that Sinner is a newer take on classic traditional Outlaw country, Waylon and Merle and Willie and Johnny Cash and all that stuff. Willie was even kind enough to sing on the album. I hope you like it.”
