Me Listening to Country Music?

To be honest with you, I'm not really a big fan of country music. I still prefer to listen to alternative rock, pop rock, and a little of metal, rap and hip-hop. I remember when I was young, the only country song I knew was "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus(yep, he's the father of Miley Cyrus).

But then recently, I heard the solo album of Aaron Lewis and things opened up for me. As most of rock fans know, Aaron Lewis is the lead singer of the band Staind which is one the more popular rock bands back then. I'm a fan of Staind and I like their songs(more about them in my future posts).

1996-2006 The Singles

So you could just imagine my surprise when I learned that their vocalist, Aaron, would release a solo country album entitled "Town Line". I was really hesitant at first 'coz this is really new to me. But heck, "what have I got to lose?", I thought to myself, so I gave it a spin.

Town Line

And I'm sure glad I did! Not only was I impressed with the songs, the album is now one of my favorites. The music and lyrics of Aaron Lewis are very honest and heartfelt. It's not everyday that I get to hear songs like these.

My favorite songs on the album are: Massachusetts, Country Boy and Tangled Up in You. These songs would be perfect when I just want to relax and just enjoy the time passing by.

How I wish I could write songs like these. This guy is amazing! I suggest you give it a chance and see for yourself. :)
