The momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down for Aaron Lewis who “brings a raw honesty to his songs on the new album “Sinner” that Country Music radio has not heard in a long time” (Maverick Magazine). The self-proclaimed “Northern Redneck” and outspoken artist is currently holding the top position on the Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts as well as comes in at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Consumption Chart with his first project on Dot Records.
The lead single, “That Ain’t Country,” is currently being introduced to Country radio and has sparked a conversation on the current state of what is being played on the airwaves.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and that is what makes America great,” stated Lewis. “I grew up listening to Merle, Waylon, Willie, Charlie Daniels and more on the radio. So when I listen to what is being played today, I barely recognize it as Country music. So that is where the song originated.”
The official video for “That Ain’t Country” premiered recently on “American Songwriter” and Shazam exclusively premiered the behind-the-scenes footage for fans on the platform. Visit the “That Ain’t County” page on the app to catch the sneak peek.
As September’s NRA Country Featured Artist, Lewis will continue to be promoted via NRA Country socials, online, and on radio, engaging 5 million plus proud members and country fans. He is on the West Coast this week with appearances on KTLA’s Morning News, The Big Time with Whitney Allen, AOL (Facebook Live) and AfterBuzz TV.
Lewis is also on the road for various stops nationwide including the Route 91 Harvest Ground Festival in Las Vegas on October 1st before he officially kicks off the “Sinner Tour” on October 24th at the Troubadour in Hollywood, CA.
