Staind frontman Aaron Lewis has moved the released date for his debut solo full length album, "The Road", from the originally announced June 26th release date to September 11th. Webster sent over these details about the album:
Co-produced by Lewis and legendary Nashville hit-maker James Stroud (Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Chris Young), "The Road" follows Lewis' debut solo EP, "Town Line," which bowed at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart last year.
The forthcoming album contains ten 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 he has cut a song he didn't have a hand in writing.
The songs that make up "The Road" mirror the country roots of Lewis' childhood. "This music and these songs represent who I am and where I come from," says Lewis, who still resides in rural western Massachusetts.
"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."
