Aaron Lewis spent several years as the “front man” of rock group Staind, but he’s gone country! Lewis has not pulled any punches when switching genres. “That Ain’t Country”, the first single from his new album Sinner, takes a shot at the current state of the genre.
“I’d like to think that ‘Sinner’ is a newer take on classic, traditional outlaw country, Waylon and Merle and Willie, and Hank Jr. and Johnny Cash and all that stuff,” says Lewis. “That was the music I heard a kid, and that’s the country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.”

“So I’ll keep listening to the old songs that my Grandad used to play
Full of pain and heartache and desperation and the ones that got away
The ones that speak to me, the way I feel today”
Let me know what you think!
