Aaron Lewis returns to his “Country Boy” roots at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on April 6th, 2011 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 11 at noon.
In only its first week, the debut solo single and video “Country Boy” featuring Charlie Daniels, George Jones and Chris Young from his Lewis’ 2011 release Town Line–out March 1 on Nashville-based Stroudavarious Records–sold over 20,000 digital singles, debuting at #9 on the Billboard Country Digital Singles sales chart.
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.
“Country was the background music to my childhood,” Lewis recalls. “My grandfather listened to Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr., and all of the greats. When Staind did our first tour with Kid Rock in 1999, I rode the bus with him on a couple occasions and we bonded over this music. I haven’t been able to let go of it since then.”
