Last week in Nashville, Aaron Lewis was presented with a plaque commemorating half a million in sales for his smash hit “Am I The Only One” (The Valory Music Co.). The song debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Chart in the summer of 2021, a feat which had only been accomplished nine times since 1958, earning Lewis an RIAA-certified Gold-selling single. Additionally, Lewis and his fellow STAIND bandmates have notched their first No. 1 hit in over a decade. STAIND’s “Lowest In Me” recently rose to the top position on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.
In addition to performing on his national “American Patriot Acoustic Tour,” Lewis is currently on the road with STAIND in support of the band’s upcoming studio album, Confessions of the Fallen, set for release in September.
