Staind frontman Aaron Lewis will follow up his debut solo EP, Town Line, with the June 26th of his full length album The Road, and is offering fans a free song download from the effort.
Once again produced by James Stroud (Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Chris Young) and LEWIS, The Road features 10 brand new songs.
Lewis had originally planned to record five new songs to be paired with the songs from Town Line, but decided to record a full album as more song ideas blossomed while recording in Nashville. Lewis wrote all of the songs on the album except "Grandaddy's Gun," penned by hit Nashville songwriters Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins and Bobby Pinson, marking the first time Lewis has ever recorded another artist's music for an album. Lewis heard the song when on a hunting trip with Stroud and Akins and identified with the lyrics so much that he asked Akins for permission to cut it.
Lewis wants his fans to have an early taste of the upcoming album and is offering a free download of "Red, White & Blue." In exchange for a Facebook "like" you can grab the song here
Lewis has earned two nominations in the "Vocal Event Of The Year" category at the upcoming ACM Awards for his work as artist and as co-producer on his debut solo single "Country Boy," which was certified gold in September for sales in excess of 500,000 units. The singer, songwriter and guitarist was nominated in the category along with his guest artists, George Jones and Charlie Daniels.
