New single, “Granddaddy’s Gun,” set to launch

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 23, 2013) – Hit singer/songwriter Aaron Lewis will make his debut on the historic Grand Ole Opry Tuesday May 28, 2013 along with a star-studded lineup that includes Bill Anderson, Ricky Skaggs, Josh Turner, Dustin Lynch, Craig Campbell and Sam Palladio (from the ABC hit show “Nashville”) among others.  The show starts at 7:00 pm. Tickets range from $35 to $57 and can be purchased at www.opry.com or by phone at 1-800-SEE-OPRY.

“Getting to play the Grand Ole Opry is such an incredible honor,” says Lewis.  “It’s a dream come true to think that I’ll get to stand in that same iconic circle where music royalty has stood.”

Aaron’s new single “Granddaddy’s Gun,” from of his critically-acclaimed album The Road, ships to country radio next week.  The powerful song focuses on the nostalgic experience of passing down a family heirloom. The song, written by Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Bobby Pinson is a perfect reflection of Lewis’ own childhood and deep country roots.

“‘Granddaddy’s Gun’ is the only song on the album that I didn’t write,” Lewis notes. “In fact, it’s the only song I’ve ever recorded that I didn’t write.  But the minute Rhett played it for me, it took me right back to my childhood.  It’s my story.  It’s a song I could have written.”
