Aaron Lewis At Grand Ole Opry
Musician Aaron Lewis is switching gears to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Most well-known for being a member of the metal/grunge band Staind, Lewis is often referred to as one of the most versatile artists of modern times because he plays a variety of music genres, from metal to rock to traditional country. It’s his traditional country album entitled The Road that has earned him a place on the Grand Ole Opry stage. In 2011, he released his first country EP entitled Town Line to dip his toes into country. The album has seven tracks including three versions of the first single “Country Boy” featuring George Jones, Charlie Daniels, and Chris Young. Lewis says that he often listened to country music as a child with his grandfather but his interest was rekindled when he toured with Kid Rock. So, in 2012, he released his first full solo album, The Road. Lewis penned nine of the ten songs. “Grandaddy’s Gun” was written by Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins, and Bobby Pinson and it’s the only time he’s recorded outside material. Aaron Lewis made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage on May 28, 2013.
