Former Staind frontman Aaron Lewis will host his 6th Annual Aaron Lewis Invitational Charity Golf Tournament And Concert this weekend at Crumpin-Fox Golf Course in Bernardston, Massachusetts. Lewis will be joined in concert by his friends such as Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor and Saint Asonia (ex-Three Days Grace) singer Adam Gontier. Full lineup and details below.
The Aaron Lewis and Friends Benefit Concert will take place the night before at Pines Theater at Look Park in Northampton, Massachusetts featuring special guests Mike Mushok (Staind, Saint Asonia) and Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace, Saint Asonia) plus Ben Kitterman and Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour). All of the proceeds from both events will go to the nonprofit organization founded by Lewis, It Takes A Community (ITACF).
“It Takes a Community began when my family joined with neighbors in our small adopted home town to keep the doors of the community elementary school open after state funding was eliminated due to district consolation. It started out as something very personal and close-to-home, but is morphing into something bigger. If we can make a difference in our little corner of Massachusetts, couldn’t we give additional worthy organizations in our area a similar leg up?”
Lewis, is touring behind his smash country album Sinner, which earned him the #1 position on the Billboard Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts upon release. The 12-track project, voted one of Whiskey Riff’s 40 Best Country Albums of 2016, was recorded in 16 hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with producer Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones). Lewis penned eight of the songs, in addition to covering Chris Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You” and The Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier.” Additionally, Lewis collaborates with Willie Nelson on the album’s title track while Grammy Award-winning artists Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski and Vince Gill are also featured.
He has a fall co-headline tour booked with Blackberry Smoke.
