As the front man of American rock/metal band Staind, Aaron Lewis boasts an accomplished music career. With hits such as "Outside," "It's Been Awhile," and "So Far Away,” the band flaunts an impressive repertoire with seven studio albums featuring five chart-topping singles while selling over 15 million records worldwide. Hints of classic Country story-telling and acoustic melodies have always been present in Aaron’s sound, supporting his decision to go back to his roots. 

Growing up in rural Vermont, the themes of homegrown country music come naturally to the singer/songwriter as he writes about his love for the land, the woods, romance, and the simple life, including his latest hit “That Ain’t Country” from brand new albumSINNER.

"I love what NRA Country stands for,” says Lewis. “I love my family.  I love this country and the rights and freedoms that this great nation gives to each of us. I am Aaron Lewis and I am NRA Country."

As an NRA Country Featured Artist, Aaron Lewis joins some of country music’s brightest stars including Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Frankie Ballard, Hank Williams, Jr., Love and Theft, Easton Corbin, Eric Paslay, Craig Morgan, Chase Rice, The Swon Brothers, Jon Pardi, Montgomery Gentry, Blackberry Smoke, LOCASH, Justin Moore, Chuck Wicks, SMO and many more, in teaming up to celebrate their support of our brave men and women in uniform, appreciation for the great outdoors, and love of family.

About Aaron Lewis: If it sounds like Aaron Lewis is long past defending his Country music pedigree, that would be a correct assessment. Lewis would prefer the music speak for itself and, with the release of SINNER, Lewis’ stunning Dot Records follow-up to his groundbreaking full-length solo debut The Road in 2012, any would-be detractors will be pretty much out of ammo. Lewis, however, is not. SINNER blasts through today’s Country music doldrums like a shot of 100-proof whiskey, with the singer making zero compromises with either himself or the restrictions of a format that seems to have abandoned its rougher tendencies in favor of pop and ‘70s rock inclinations largely lacking in grit. “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 as a kid, and that’s the Country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.” Lewis, who fronted the wildly-successful Rock group Staind, has 15 million albums sold worldwide and four consecutive top three debuts on Billboard’s Top 200, including the single “It’s Been Awhile,” which remains the most-played rock song of the decade.
