Aaron Lewis: I Feel Like Country Is The Music of Real America

For more than 20 years singer and guitarist Aaron Lewis' powerful, rolling baritone voice has carried fans on a personal journey into his life through songs of acceptance, consequences, depression, love, and family--both with the alternative metal band Staind and most recently his solo country ballads.

Friday night, in the close-quarters setting of the sold-out showroom at Talking Stick Resort, Lewis mingled with the crowd, smoked cigarettes, drank whiskey, and provided a moving, intimate and informal acoustic event.
