EDITORS’ NOTES

Low-key country tunes from a former hard rock hero. Aaron Lewis’ baritone is the perfect tool for these strong-but-tender songs. The acoustic strumming and simple language bypasses corny hooks and one-liners to rediscover the straight-shooting soulfulness of classic country.

Hell ya.

Leave it to a metal god to make better country than 90% of "country" artists.

Maybe now Nashville will listen...

Aaron Lewis speaks from the heart. He may have been in Staind first, but country music was his first love, acquired by hanging out with his grandfather. I love Aaron's music in Staind as much as anyone. But true fans should at least respect the man's entire repertoire and stop heckling him at his live shows. It's time to accept truth: He's real. He's raw. He writes his own stuff and adds down-home flavor to what he covers. He's a new generation of outlaw and a bona-fide pop-country killer. The death of pop-country began with the rise of Chris Stapleton (whom Aaron covers on this album, see "Whiskey and You") and it could continue with "Sinner." Aaron belongs in the Grand Ole Opry, having collaborated with three legends (George Jones, Charlie Daniels, and now Willie Nelson.) In this reviewer's opinion, Aaron has earned his status as a country music legend. He writes his own songs, remembers where he came from, and performs live shows with such ferocity and dedication for his fans. Support the man, buy the album. If we continue to demand neo-outlaws like Lewis, Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jamey Johnson, Cody Jinks, Whitey Morgan, etc., pop-country will die, or the Little Big Town's and Chase Rice's of music row will be forced to return to their roots. And maybe Nashville will perk up and listen.

Sinner delivers!

Aaron Lewis is one of those artists that continues to impress with each offering. From his days with Staind to his solo career this man is so much more than his tattoos. In an era filled with "bro-country" garbage being spewed from most country artists, Aaron chooses to make country music his way. With minimal radio play he tours heavily, filling concerts halls with fans who can't get enough of his simple but soulful music that speaks to so many. Sinner, yet again, displays the depth and musical strength Aaron's fans have been drawn to since his first solo album in 2011.
