Aaron Lewis is getting back to his country roots today with his third solo album Sinner on Dot Records.
Already summiting the iTunes All Genre and Country Albums charts this morning, the record features his current single “That Ain’t Country,” which showcases bedrock of traditional country that is often missing from the airwaves today.
Produced by Country legend Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones), and recorded over 16 intense hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios, Sinner captures Lewis’ mindset, a laid back soundtrack that is reminiscent of the genre’s most honest and musically adventurous artists.
“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 a kid, and that’s the Country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.”
Celeb Secrets Country caught up with Aaron Lewis recently to talk all about Sinner.
