Last weekend we were out in the desert celebrating the best of country music at Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA. While we were there, we sat down with Aaron Lewis, the front man of multi-million-selling hard rock group, STAIND, to talk about his upcoming country album, The Road, set to release this year. Lewis has made a significant dent into the country music world, as his 2011 EP “Town Line,” entered #7 on the Top 200 album charts, thanks in large part to the gold-certified single, “Country Boy.” Lewis speaks of his life on the road and the difference between the two genres he inhabits in the interview below.
Check out Aaron Lewis’ first single from his full-length album, “Endless Summer,” on the Music Unlimited service and keep an eye out for more news from Aaron in the coming months!
Sony Entertainment Network: From SEN follower @Hybridstaind on Twitter: How would you describe the energy from one of your Country shows compared to a Rock show?
Aaron Lewis: Well, just by nature, there’s a lot more energy to a rock show. But, the country shows are great, too, for different reasons. I tend to express myself a lot differently in the rock shows, lyrically. But I’d have to say that there’s probably more evoked at a STAIND show. I have to.
