Aaron Lewis is known for his outspokenness, impassioned live show, and Outlaw Country tunes. His most recent album, the 2019 Buddy Cannon-produced STATE I’M IN (The Valory Music Co.), features cuts by acclaimed songwriters Dan Tyminski and the late Keith Whitley, among others. STATE I’M IN is the follow-up to SINNER, which went No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums, Top 200 Albums, and Top Digital Albums Charts upon release chart and blasts through today’s Country music doldrums like a shot of 100-proof whiskey, with the singer making zero compromises with either himself or the restrictions of a format that seems to have abandoned its rougher tendencies in favor of pop and ‘70s rock inclinations largely lacking in grit. Lewis, who fronted the wildly-successful Rock group Staind, has sold 13 million albums worldwide and four consecutive top-three debuts on Billboard’s Top 200, including the single “It’s Been Awhile,” which remains the most-played rock song of the decade.
