AARON LEWIS RETURNS TO FIREKEEPERS CASINO HOTEL EVENT CENTER ON MARCH 31
(Battle Creek, Mich.) Jan. 5, 2017 – FireKeepers Casino Hotel is pleased to announce Aaron Lewis’s return to the FireKeepers Event Center on Friday, March 31, 2017. The show will begin at 9 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 6 at 10 a.m.
The multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist will be performing tunes from his newly-released country album Sinner, including “That Ain’t Country,” and “Mama”, along with “Country Boy”, from his first country release. Lewis has equally popular hits from his time as lead singer in the rock band Staind, including chart-topping hits such as “It’s Been Awhile” and “So Far Away.”
“It is so rare to find a talent that can write and sing hits in rock and country and Aaron Lewis is such talent,” said Jim Wise, Vice President of Marketing at FireKeepers Casino Hotel. “His country hits are awesome, so expect a great night of music”.
Lewis’s sophomore album, Sinner, released in September 2016, debuted No. 1 on the country charts and No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, follows up earlier successes of The Road and Town Line. 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.
