Aaron Lewis, lead singer-songwriter of the emo-metal band Staind admits he fans might be surprised to learn that hes a hick who has ...always been a hick country through and through.
Lewis says when hes not penning multi-platinum songs about pain, betrayal and dysfunctionality, hes hunting and fishing as much as possible.
As he puts it, In fact, growing up, hunting and fishing with my family was one of the only times I was NOT getting in trouble.
Lewis argues that being a kid with a gun was not inherently dangerous for him, adding: We have a problem not with guns, but with pulling the trigger without thinking about the consequences in this country.
Lewis and Staind are currently headlining the Jagermeister Music Tour. Their latest release is 2005s Chapter V.
