Following sold-out performances at Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock Resort in 2012, Aaron Lewis is returning to Las Vegas in 2013 for two highly-anticipated shows. Lewis, whose new, full-length country album will be released November 2012, will perform Friday, Jan. 18 at Chrome Showroom inside Santa Fe Station and will return the next night at Rocks Lounge inside Red Rock Resort. Both shows begin at 8 p.m.
Aaron Lewis formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut solo EP, Town Line. Highlighted by the success of the gold-selling single “Country Boy,” featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached number one on the Billboard Country Albums chart and number seven on the Billboard Top 200 chart in 2011. The single also received two Academy of Country Music nominations, as well as two CMT nominations.
Lewis’ latest solo effort, the full-length The Road, is scheduled to be released in November 2012. Produced by James Stroud, The Road will feature 10 songs, including the debut single “Endless Summer.” The Road brings things full circle for Lewis. In Staind, he has made an indelible mark on hard rock. The group has sold 13 million albums worldwide, yielding four consecutive top-three debuts on the Billboard Top 200 chart, as well as numerous radio hits. Their single “It’s Been Awhile” also remains the most-played rock song of the decade. Still, this new chapter proves cyclical for Lewis, actually bringing him back to the first style of music he’d heard: country music.

Tickets for the Jan. 19 performance at Red Rock Resort are $45 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission and $65 plus tax and applicable fees for Gold Circle seating.
