NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 19, 2017) – Aaron Lewis is starting 2017 where he ended 2016…with sold out performances this past weekend in Greensboro, Raleigh and Charlotte and an upcoming sold out schedule promoting his critically acclaimed album SINNER (Dot Records).
The self-proclaimed “Northern Redneck” and Staind frontman achieved critical and commercial success with SINNER earning him the #1 position on the Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts upon release.
The 12-track project, voted one of Whiskey Riff’s 40 Best Country Albums of 2016, was recorded in only 16 hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with producer Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones). Lewis single-handedly penned eight of the songs, in addition to covering Chris Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You” and The Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier.” Lewis collaborates with Willie Nelson on the album’s title track while Grammy® Award-winning artists Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski and Vince Gill are also featured.
SINNER was also one of Billboard’s 10 Best Country Albums of 2016. "The no-holds-barred honesty of tracks such as “I Lost It All” and “Mama” were some of the finest writing from a male artist this year." – Billboard
The Boot raves, “Aaron Lewis shows a surprising understanding and respect for country music with his latest album, SINNER. Drawing from his childhood influences of listening to country music in his grandfather's car, SINNER shows Aaron's abilities as a singer, songwriter, musician and stylist. SINNER might just be the record that propels Aaron to a permanent place in country music.” Maverick Magazine’s Eric Dahl concurs, “Aaron Lewis brings a raw honesty to his songs on the new album SINNER that Country Music radio hasn’t heard in a long time. The imagery of the lyrics sucks you in, but his mournful voice and guitar keep you!”
