Staind frontman turned solo country music star Aaron Lewis has announced that he will be making his debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry later this month.
Lewis will be taking the Opry stage on May 28th for a show that will also include Bill Anderson, Ricky Skaggs, Josh Turner, Dustin Lynch, Craig Campbell and Sam Palladio (from the ABC hit show "Nashville") and more.
"Getting to play the Grand Ole Opry is such an incredible honor," says Lewis. "It's a dream come true to think that I'll get to stand in that same iconic circle where music royalty has stood."
Lewis will also be releasing his next single "Granddaddy's Gun," to country radio next week. The track comes from his solo album "The Road". In a career first for Lewis, the song was penned by outside songwriters; Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Bobby Pinson.
"'Granddaddy's Gun' is the only song on the album that I didn't write," Lewis said. "In fact, it's the only song I've ever recorded that I didn't write. But the minute Rhett played it for me, it took me right back to my childhood. It's my story. It's a song I could have written."
