Lewis' "Country Boy" goes gold

Thursday, September 22, 2011 – Aaron Lewis debut solo single, Country Boy, was certified gold, selling in excess of 500,000 copies. The song is featured on Leweis' debut solo EP, "Town Line," released earlier this year on Nashville's R&J Records.

George Jones and Charlie Daniels helped out on the song.

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. ...
CD review - The Road 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?
