GRAMMY AWARD NOMINEE AARON LEWIS TO PERFORM
TWO SHOWS AT MOUNT AIRY CASINO RESORT
Mount Pocono PA – Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist Aaron Lewis will perform again at Mount Airy Casino Resort’s Gypsies Nightclub and Lounge on November 16th with two shows at 8 and 10:30 p.m.
Tickets are $45 and $65 and can be purchased in advance at mountairycasino.com or by calling 1-866-468-7619.
As the lead singer of Staind, Lewis has sold over 15 million albums, had 3 number No. 1 hits and 12 Top 10 singles including rock staples such as “Outside,” “It’s Been Awhile,” “Far Away” and more. In 2011, the Staind front man formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut EP, Town Line. Highlighted by the success of gold-selling single “Country Boy” featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and No. 7 on Billboard’sTop 200 upon release.
Lewis also received two Academy of Country Music nominations for “Vocal Event of the Year” for “Country Boy” (for his work as artist and as co-producer) as well as two CMT nominations–one for “USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year” and another for “Collaborative Video of the Year.”
After a whirlwind year, Lewis began working on what would become The Road in the fall of 2011. While balancing both a solo run and a tour supporting Staind’s self-titled seventh studio album, he carved out intermittent pockets of time to record in Nashville with legendary Grammy-winning producer James Stroud. He recorded the whole record by bouncing in and out of Nashville on days off. He would come into town, work for the day, bail out, and play some more shows. Four days later, he would do the same thing. That’s how the album was made, and it’s why he called it The Road.”
“We are thrilled to welcome back Aaron Lewis to Mount Airy Casino Resort for what we anticipate to be two extremely entertaining shows,” said John Culetsu, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Mount Airy Casino Resort.
