Staind's frontman/lyrical mastermind Aaron Lewis has veered away from his post-grunge past with new single "Country Boy" — sort of. On his new EP crafted in Nashville, Town Line, expect to hear "country" songs that really sound like a clash of Bon Jovi and Alice in Chains, sung in that "imitation of Scott Stapp imitating Scott Weiland imitating Eddie Vedder" style that Staind has perfected.
"Country Boy" features Charlie "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" Daniels and another legend of the classic country era in George Jones. Jones plays the role of the devil in the song, offering Lewis millions of record sales and his name on the marquee in exchange for his soul and the condition that he whiten his teeth. If you're into this kind of thing, you might not read into the lyrics and just accept the truth: Los Angeles and rock 'n' roll are the devil. We're betting that some Staind classics like "It's Been Awhile" and "Right Here" figure in too.
