Lewis headlines Jager tour
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
– Aaron Lewis will headline this year's Jagermeister tour, starting May 1.
The tour features as yet unannounced support acts including Jagermeister artist and emcee, Rick Monroe.
Now in its fourth year, the Jagermeister Country Music Tour has featured Pat Green, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley.
"Jagermeister has grown to be one of the most respected brands within the music world, and I am happy to be a part of the family," said Lewis.
"This tour is a great opportunity to work with Aaron and we are very excited to be a part of this new chapter of his career," said Cliff Rigano, Director of Music Marketing for Jagermeister.
Lewis, a member of the hard rocking Staind, made his journey to the country scene in 2011 with the release of his debut EP, "Town Line," which had the Gold-selling single Country Boy, featuring George Jones and Charlie Daniels. The seven-song EP reached number 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and 7 on the Billboard Top 200. Lewis released "The Road" CD in November 2012.

State I'm In
When you tune into rocker turned country singer Aaron Lewis' fourth solo outing, "State I'm In," you'll find yourself excited about the potential state of country music with artists like Lewis still standing guard. Writing with an unapologetic hand and an honest, earnest love for the sounds of classic country he was weaned on, Lewis' music here steps forth with powerful emotion, great musicianship, and you can dance to it too.

You hear all the time these days how politicians are 'evolving' on particular issues. They may have felt one way about a topic many years ago, but - nearly miraculously - they've since evolved. Aaron Lewis is the former singer for Staind, a noisy, pained hard rock band. But it's been a while since Lewis created alternative rock and roll. With "Sinner," he's truly evolved, musically. This is not some cynical, Alan Jackson gone country moment, either. »»»
Who would have ever thought that, in looking for one of the next more promising acts in country, we'd be turning to none other than seasoned rock and roller, Aaron Lewis, of Staind fame? Add to that the fact that Lewis hails from Massachusetts, a far throw from the Mason-Dixon Line, and you're faced with quite a head-scratcher. Yet, on his 2010 EP "Town Line" the artist showed that he had the right stuff and his first full-length country release, "The Road," delivers »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Underwood leads a night of women in country
Carrie Underwood may have been off the road for three years, during which time she had two boys and did not release an album until "Cry Pretty" 13 months ago, but the most successful American Idol contestant has lost none of her vocal luster to say the least in her Cry Pretty 360 Tour.

Concert Review: Lovett remains near perfect
Lyle Lovett is a very funny man. He peppers his performances with an array of anecdotes and observations, delivering them with an unassuming attitude and a decidedly low key commentary. "One person in a relationship shouldn't have more fun than the other, or at least appear to have more fun than the other," he noted at one point.... »»»
