Aaron Lewis, an American patriot, musician and avid outdoorsman, began paving his way into a solo career in country music about 14 years ago. Aaron was once best known as the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and founding member of the nu metal band Staind, but his country music has really gotten attention. His passionate songs talk about patriotism and current events in this country, with songs like “Am I The Only One.” Aaron’s no-holds-barred attitude encourages listeners to stand up for what they believe in, just like he does in every song, interview or performance. Aaron is touring extensively in 2024 with his latest album, “The Hill,” and his first single of that album, “Made In China.” A true supporter of the Second Amendment, Aaron Lewis has been and always will be NRA Country! Lisa Supernaugh got to grab a quick moment with Aaron to ask him a few questions. Be sure to follow him on all social media and check out his latest music, tour schedule and merchandise at aaronlewismusic.com.

LS: You show no signs of slowing down with your extensive 2024 tour schedule. Any time for hunting or fishing?
AL: I always try to incorporate hunting and fishing into my touring schedule so I can take advantage of the fact that I’ve got fresh land or fresh water to explore.

LS: Your latest album, “The Hill” is getting lots of attention on the charts. What was the inspiration for its most-popular song, “Made in China”?
AL: We were sitting in a writing room and realized everything in the room was made in China. My first thought was “Well, I ain’t made in China.”

LS: “Made In China” continues to put you on the fringe in the music industry. Others might have the same thoughts, but often don’t step up and voice them. How does it make you feel to speak for many in your industry?
AL: Lonely [laughs]. But in all seriousness, I spent the first 20 years of my career in the machine, playing the game and staying in my lane. I’ve worked really hard to create a situation where I can operate on a much more independent level and I understand fully not all of my peers are in the same position I am.

LS: What are your thoughts on how to get more people, especially youth, involved in the outdoors?
AL: Conservation first, because without the land and resources, there’s nothing to pass on. One of the biggest problems we have is making sure we, the conservators, make the rules and laws that oversee what is most near and dear to our hearts. Finally, there’s passing down the skills, knowledge and trades necessary to conserve this for the generations to come.

LS: You do so much for our military, law enforcement, first responders and veterans; do you have a military or service background?
AL: I haven’t served, and it’s one of my biggest regrets. My family, on both sides, has served for generations. For me, it’s an unwavering sense of duty to support those who would put their lives in jeopardy for mine, my family’s, and my fellow Americans’.

LS: If you had to teach a child about what freedom is today, and the USA, what would you say to them?
AL: I would hand them a copy of the Constitution and tell them to come back to me with questions.
