Aaron Lewis’ ‘Sinner’ Makes Chart-Topping Debut


The momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down for Aaron Lewis who “brings a raw honesty to his songs on the new album Sinner that Country Music radio has not heard in a long time” (Maverick Magazine). The self-proclaimed “Northern Redneck” and outspoken artist is currently holding the top position on the Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts as well as comes in at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Consumption Chart with his first project on Dot Records.

The lead single, “That Ain’t Country,” is currently being introduced to Country radio and has sparked a conversation on the current state of what is being played on the airwaves. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and that is what makes America great,” stated Lewis. “I grew up listening to Merle, Waylon, Willie, Charlie Daniels and more on the radio. So when I listen to what is being played today, I barely recognize it as Country music. So that is where the song originated.”

The official video for “That Ain’t Country” premiered recently on American Songwriter and Shazam exclusively premiered the behind-the-scenes footage for fans on the platform. Visit the “That Ain’t County” page on the app to catch the sneak peek.

As September’s NRA Country Featured Artist, Lewis will continue to be promoted via NRA Country socials, online, and on radio, engaging 5 million plus proud members and country fans. He is on the West Coast today (9/26) with appearances on KTLA’s Morning News, The Big Time with Whitney Allen, AOL (Facebook Live) and AfterBuzz TV.

Aaron Lewis Digs Down To His Roots With ‘Sinner’ On September 16

Aaron Lewis

Known for genuinely gritty lyrics and hard rock anthems, Aaron Lewis is getting back to his Country roots September 16 with his first album on Dot Records entitled SINNER. Lewis comes out of the gate “with both fists flying” on the lead single “That Ain’t Country,” –available NOW – where he laments the current state of “Country, if you call it that,” and pines for the sound of his honky-tonk heroes. The Bocephus-styled musicality and Lewis’ accessible vocals showcase the “pain, heartache and desperation,” a bedrock of traditional Country that is often missing from the airwaves today.

Pre-order for the physical album begins today at while the digital version will be offered at retailers starting July 15 with select instant grat tracks available throughout the launch.

Produced by Country legend Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones), and recorded over 16 intense hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios, SINNER captures Lewis’ mindset, a laid back soundtrack that is reminiscent of the genre’s most honest and musically adventurous artists.

“I’d like to think that SINNER is a newer take on classic, traditional Outlaw Country, Waylon and Merle and Willie, and Hank Jr. and Johnny Cash and all that stuff,” says Lewis. “That was the music I heard a kid, and that’s the Country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.”

While SINNER may surprise those unaware of Lewis’ lyrical depth and vocal authority, hard-core fans of his concerts (which he describes as “a very healthy mix of cowboy hats, baseball caps, tattoos and black shirts”) will rejoice in having definitive copies of songs they’ve been hearing live and on the Internet, some for a couple of years.
