After a stellar lineup of shows in 2023, 2024 is shaping up to be another great year for Tri-State concerts with the announcement that Aaron Lewis will be making a stop at the Owensboro Sportscenter in February.

Aaron first gained fame as the frontman for the hard rock group, Staind, thanks to the popularity of hit songs like, "Mudshovel," "For You," and the ballad, "Outside." after years of rocking out venues around the world, the band took a break and Aaron shifted his songwriting focus to the world of Country music. Taking inspiration from the classic country artists he listened to as a boy with his grandpa in his hometown of Springfield, Vermont he released his solo debut EP, Town Line, featuring the hit single, "Country Boy."

Over the years, he's gone on to record four more full-length Country albums, including his latest, Frayed at Both Ends, featuring his first Country song to hit number one, "Am I the Only One."

His transition to Country has given him the opportunity to record with some of the biggest names in Country Music, including George Jones, Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels, Alison Krauss, and Vince Gill. And even though he and his Staind bandmates reunited this year and released their first album in over a decade, he won't be abandoning his love of Country with the announcement that he's heading out on the road starting in early 2024 for an acoustic solo tour.
