Aaron Lewis began carving out a solo career in country music about 13 years ago. Aaron, who was best known as the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and founding member of the nu-metal band Staind, has now paved a unique road into country music that has garnered lots of attention. His passionate songs are about patriotism and current events in this country (such as “Am I The Only One”), the music industry itself (such as “That Ain’t Country”) and just everyday life that we all can relate to whether we are white collar, blue collar or no collar. 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’s love of hunting, fishing and the outdoors is a family tradition that he continues with his wife and daughters. A true supporter of the Second Amendment and the Constitution, Aaron Lewis has been and always will be NRA Country! NRA Country’s Lisa Supernaugh got to grab a quick moment with Aaron to ask him a few questions. Be sure to follow Aaron on all social media and check out his latest music, tour schedule and merchandise at aaronlewismusic.com.

LS: You were touring a lot in 2022 and have a packed schedule for 2023. How do you make time to hunt and fish?
AL: I make it a priority. I strategically put hunting and fishing everywhere that I can in between shows. If it means my bus driver and I peel off and go to a spot, then we do. I have to be crafty with my schedule, but the payoff is worth it.

LS: We’ve heard whitetails are your favorite to hunt. 
AL: Well, I’ve been blessed to harvest many whitetails over the years, and some sizable ones at that, but I’ve moved my focus to coyotes. Coyotes I can hunt anywhere without a bag limit or seasonal restrictions.

LS: Your song “Granddaddy’s Gun” shows your love of tradition. How do you continue the outdoor traditions you love with your family?
AL: We certainly have in the past, but we haven’t had much time here lately. I look forward to all of us having more time to enjoy the outdoors together again.

LS: What inspired your Billboard No. 1 hit “Am I the Only One?”
AL: The events of 2020, in every sense, inspired what became “Am I The Only One.” And what has occurred since then is a glaring example of what freedom isn’t—and how fragile it is.

LS: Your songs speak to the heart of America, helping people to find their freedom and their voice. What does freedom mean to you?
AL: We once thought our constitutionally protected freedom was impenetrable to the evil forces that seek to destroy what our founding fathers had the wisdom and fortitude to create: to stand up against all odds for what was right and just for all … a freedom for all, regardless of our individual differences—regardless of race, religion, sexuality or gender. A freedom for Americans, by Americans, against the all-too-familiar feeling of tyranny.

LS: You have had an amazing career in nu metal and country. What can we expect in 2023 from this unapologetic patriot?
AL: Another year full of shows, and I’m trying to get both a new Staind record and a new acoustic record out!
