Staind's Aaron Lewis Returns to San Antonio with More Outlaw Country Jams

Aaron Lewis has come a long way from his adolescent angst-igniting anthems from the late '90s. If you graduated high school between 1998 and 2005, you or someone you know probably had a Staind CD (and maybe even wrote some terrible poetry because of those songs). But with the release of 2011’s Town Line, Lewis transitioned from sad nu-metal singer to sad country singer.

“My music is very first person, very autobiographical,” said Lewis in a recent press release. “It’s from my life experiences that I draw inspiration for my songs. This acoustic tour gives me the opportunity to share the stories behind my songs with my fans and play them stripped down, like I wrote them.”

The “State I’m In” tour hits San Antonio on Friday, January 25, 2019 and will feature acoustic songs and stories from Lewis as he shares personal tales from the stage. Fans will receive a physical copy of the new album, The State I’m In, available next year, when they purchase a pair of tickets to the tour.

Tickets ($27.50-$52.50) go on sale this Friday, December 7 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the Majestic Theatre Box Office, online at, or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000.
