Aaron Lewis' country album 'The Road' due September 11th
Blaster Records has announced that the new country album from Aaron Lewis, “The Road”, will be released on September 11.
The forthcoming album contains 10 brand-new songs, including first single "Endless Summer," which CMT has hailed as "the anthem of the Summer of 2012." It also contains the Rhett Akins/Dallas Davidson/Bobby Pinson-penned "Granddaddy's Gun," marking the first time in Lewis' entire career that the lead singer of the Springfield rock group Staind has cut a song he didn't have a hand in writing.
"I hope people hear the record and realize that this is all me," Lewis says of the songs on "The Road." "I'm writing songs about who I am and where I am, just like I've done my whole career. The setting for the songs might be different but they're as honest as anything I've ever done."
The solo project will be available for pre-sale along with exclusive merchandise beginning mid-July at http://www.aaronlewismusic.com/
“This music and these songs represent who I am and where I come from,” says Lewis, who still resides in rural western Massachusetts.

Released in March of 2011, Lewis’ inaugural solo project was met with acclaim from both critics and his fan base. His debut solo single, “Country Boy,” featured contributions from country stalwarts George Jones and Charlie Daniels and achieved Gold certification. And though he has toured extensively in a solo and acoustic fashion for the last eight years, Lewis is about to embark on his first full-band tour as a solo artist this summer.
