Friday, June 12 at 8 p.m. — RUTLAND — The Paramount Theatre welcomes 90s rock/metal group Staind lead-singer and country music artist Aaron Lewis to the stage on Friday, June 12 at 8 p.m.

In 2011, the Staind frontman 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 number one on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and number seven on the Billboard Top 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.”  Simultaneously, the music video for the single stirred similar fan fervor, surpassing 12 million views on YouTube and three million on CMT.com. After a whirlwind year, Lewis began working on what would become “The Road” in the fall of 2011.

In many ways, “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 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 ($25.75 – $49.75) are available at the venue box office located at 30 Center Street in Rutland; charge-by-phone by calling 802-775-0903; or purchase online at www.paramountlive.org.
