    • Staind - BERLIN, GERMANY - OCTOBER 14: Singer Aaron Lewis of the band Staind performs live during a concert at the Huxleys on October 14, 2011 in Berlin, Germany.
    • Staind - In some ways, Staind's triumphant set at "Epicenter 2011" is emblematic of their journey. They were never into press posturing, awards show bullshit, or trying to be something they're not. They write timeless songs like "Eyes Wide Open", "Spleen", "Mudshovel", and "Something to Remind You" and kick teeth in when they hit stage. Isn't that everything a hard rock band should do? Well, they do it better than anyone… - Rick Florino

    "Country Boy" is the country anthem of the decade. Aaron Lewis of Staind has penned a soulful declaration of who he is that's intelligent, invigorating, and inspiring. The song remains as timeless as any classic country tune, and it's become the perfect introduction to Lewis's solo country EP, Town Line. However, there's absolutely nothing like seeing or hearing Lewis play "Country Boy" live. Given the power of that experience, ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino has a treat for you…

    Aaron Lewis performed "Country Boy" for ARTISTdirect.com acoustically at our studio, and it's as transcendent as anything that he's committed to tape. Check out the video below to see Aaron perform the song along with his multi-instrumental partner the ever-amazing Ben 'Kitt' Kitterman. Kitterman's dobro adds elegantly gritty country textures, while Lewis infuses raw emotion into the delivery making for an unforgettable performance of the song.
