He truly is a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll: Aaron Lewis
, lead singer of the hard-rock group Staind, is following in the footsteps of Lionel Richie, Bon Jovi, and Darius Rucker (of Hootie and the Blowfish) and crossing over into Nashville. To Lewis, a transition to country “is full circle because, this is the first music I was ever exposed to as a child.” Lewis dropped his first full-length solo country album, The Road
, last November; he has hit the road and is touring all over the U.S. Drive him crazy by loudly requesting Staind songs on Sunday, March 3, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $40. 707.259.0123.
