  • I mean, it's not a bad song or anything. But I just have a hard time buying the whole southern accent thing when he sings now. I mean, he didn't even have it on his first country album. Kinda strange.

  • I keep coming back. That steel is addicting.

  • I know Garrett Lewis xD

  • Kinda happy Dallas smith an Aaron Lewis went to country. They both rock and they both got country

  • That’s what country supposed to sound like

  • I wonder if he drives a truck and knows ammonia refrigeration

  • Also check out Cody Jinks, Jacob Bryant, Brandon Jenkins, John Moreland…

  • Man I want to see Around Lewis and Jamey Johnson together in concert !!!!! That would be a big ole Time!

  • How ironic he does a song with this title.

  • I would like to spit some. Beach up in Luke Bryan's eyes

  • It's a crying shame he's a yankee. I sure enjoy his tunes and sawang.

  • Sorry, I can only hear “Mudshovel”

  • Yeah Aaron I’ll listen to the old songs you used to play ie can’t believe, for you , falling.

  • How many of you would still like him knowing he used to be the lead singer of Staind? Jw lol

  • I think of this song whenever someone says that "Oldtown Road" is a country song🤦🏽‍♂️

  • Awesome song

  • one of my new fav songs.

  • Still here jamming at 1000

  • This is country

  • Hey.. I'm here talking as a Brazilian guy.. I really don't know all the history behind Country Music.. But I like Aaron, Alan Jackson, Alabama, Josh Turner, Johnny Cash.. But I like Luke Bryan, FGL, Sam Hunt too.. And I think theres nothin' wrong about It.. You amarican guys have great musicians.. One of my big dreams is watching a concert of one of these guys, anyone !
    So.. that's it.. I Just wanted to say this to you guys !

  • Ironic and hypocritical
    He had a nose ring eyebrow ring earrings and only played rock music… That's not country. Fake.

  • this is country

  • great song

  • Thsnk you for that David Allan Coe mention
    DAC forever

  • What a sad state of affairs I'm in
    'Cause I'm trying to compete where I just don't fit in
    'Cause the country, if you call it that, from off the road
    Ain't country just because I'm old enough to know that
    That ain't country
    That's a natural fact
    It's full of tails of good times and happy endings
    My life ain't like that
    So I'll keep listening to the old songs that my Grandad used to play
    Full of pain and heartache and desperation and the ones that got away
    The ones that speak to me, the way I feel today
    So tell me, whatever happened to the country songs
    Full of truth and consequences, all the things gone wrong
    Someone came and changed it up, made it all a lie
    I'd like to spit a little beach-nut right in that dude's eye
    'Cause that ain't country
    That's a natural fact
    It's full of tails of good times and happy endings
    My life ain't like that
    So I'll keep listening to the old songs that my Grandad used to play
    Full of pain and heartache and desperation and the ones that got away
    The ones that speak to me, the way I feel today
    Now listen here
    We got Waylon singing songs 'bout a Ramblin' Man
    And Junior's got a cold one in his hand
    And the Possum's gettin drunk again imagine that
    And Charlie Daniels playing fiddle underneath that hat
    And John and June are goin' back and forth again
    And David Allan Coe is singing 'bout his kin
    And Haggard sings the songs that'll save your soul
    And Willie sings the songs about the hearts he stole
    'Cause that shit's country
    That's a natural fact
    It's full of tails of hard times and complications
    Ain't life like that?
    So I'll keep listening to the old songs that my Grandad used to play
    Full of pain and heartache and desperation and the ones that got away
    The ones that speak to me, the way I feel today
    The ones that speak to me
    The way I feel today

  • Where did that accent come from? This is hard to watch

  • Finally some country music I can turn up loud!😂

  • A shame he just turned out to be another California douche bag.

  • 👎 long fart noise

  • Thin Blue Line hat. hell yes.

  • 🤘🎸making country great again 1 song at a time 🎸🤘

  • Hell yeah brother! Countries had a face lift to abide with all these hipster wanna Be's that dont know anything about drinking until you pass out or having a woman do you wrong

  • real country (northern redkneck) if you like this and want it back listen to tyler childers and colter wall

  • Exactly how I feel today

  • Who ever dreamed we would have to depend on Aaron Lewis to take us back to real country music. Thanks man!

  • Amen!♡

  • I'm 24 but I have such an old soul, I just don't fit in with my generation, I absolutely love the music my grandfather played too and the old school music at the fairs they play all night you don't get country like that anymore….

  • Country is gone just go to Nashville and see most of the bar the girls dress as trashy as they can to get tips no class left in country

  • Tuned into a local "Country" station today, rap, rhythm and pop coming outta the speakers. WTH?!? Back to my 80's n 90's playlists. That ain't country coming outta Nashville. . . No steel, no fiddle, no way.

  • Damnit Aaron Lewis. I really hate country,but since it's you I'll accept it.

  • Would love to hear aaron write a song about the sellouts as we all know he is not and doesn't approve of

  • When i was a punk, elitist idiots used to argue what was and wasn't punk, same as idiots on here about country. If you like it listen to it, if you don't go and find something you do and quit whining about what in your wee minds is the only country, rock, punk whatever.

  • Some ones had to tell the truth, do something real and speak out against the pretty boy pop and tractor rap shit, Arron's a hero for standing up

  • this isnt country either.

  • Please make more of this real country music👌🏻

  • An artist of sound and feeling.

  • Irony is a Luke Bryan ad before this video.

  • I love Aaron but he needs to go back to staind he's not made for country music

  • Thanks for coming out to Iraq to play for us back in 2009 at Camp Summerall. It was a real treat and a highlight of the tour.

  • True country is outlaw country

  • From a diehard haggard fan glad to see aaron keeping country music country

  • @KevinDotson ….This is crazy going from mudshovel to that ain't country …don't get me wrong it's a good song and I'm actually going to cover it how is stained wood put out another hardcore album like the self-titled album

  • I hope Fla/Ga Line, Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum, Kane Brown, Keith Urban, Dustin Lynch, Sam Hunt, Hunter Hayes, LoCash, Dan & Shay & quite a few other "SO-CALLED COUNTRY ARTISTS" all hear this…THEN REALIZE THAT THIS IS REAL COUNTRY MUSIC!!!
    I'm so tired of this COOKIE-CUTTER, BRO-POP, PRETTY-BOY, WANNA-BE TRASH that's being played on country music stations today.
    Most of this TRASH being played today is Nowhere near REAL COUNTRY MUSIC!!!
    I can really appreciate some of the newer country singers that are trying to keep it REAL COUNTRY.
    Justin Moore, Easton Corbin, Aaron Lewis, Chris Janson, Chris Stapleton, Jon Pardi, William Michael Morgan, Whitey Morgan & the 78's, BlackBerry Smoke, Midland, Randy Houser, Riley Green, Luke Combs, Cody Johnson, Rodney Atkins, Heath Sanders, Tony Justice, Eric Church, Casey Donahew, Gord Bamford, Blake Shelton, & THANK GOD ABOVE KING GEORGE HAS PUT OUT A NEW CD AND TOURING AGAIN!!!
    Much love from Mobile Alabama.

  • It’s crazy seeing him make such a change. just got done watching staind homegrown video. He went from wearing baggy clothes, painting his nails black wearing bucket hats, having a eyebrow piercing, hanging out with bands like korn and pantera when staind was first getting started. Just baffles me. And if you ask me… his full vocal potential is with the rock music that he has put out. Man can put out some crazy screams and still does sometimes at his country shows.

  • This is country and that’s a natural fact

  • Almost like dinosaur by hank Williams jr now Aaron Lewis sings it

  • Why was this on a metal playlist… btw I love this song

  • Holy crap a country song that's actually country and not pop #respect

  • What the fuck happened to this guy?

  • ARRON YOU HAVE A VOICE LIKE NO OTHER MAN IVE EVER HEARD BUT IVE GOT TO TELL YOU AND THIS IS ONLY MY OP ION AND WE ALL KNOW THE SAYING"OPINIONS ARE LIKE ASSHOLES EVERY ONE HAS ONE" BUT AS OF ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST STAINED FANS YOUR PATH IS NOYT COUNTRY YOU HAD IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME SIT DOWN AND LISTEN AND COMPARE THE TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF MUSIC STAINED WAS YOURE CALLING YOUR VOICE IS FUCKING PHENOMENAL AND SO STRONG ITS BEEN AWHILE DUDE BUT YOU DID REALLY WELL WITH COUNTRY BOY BUT YOURE VOICE IS BETTER BY FAR THAN A COUNTRY SINGER WITH A LITTLE TWANG THERES LOTS AND LOTS OF COUNTRY SINGERS BU THERES NOBODY COULD SING WHAT YOU WERE SINGING AND WILL NEVER TOUCH YOU AND YOURE AWESOME VOICE!!!

  • Aaron Lewis isn't country. He started off as rock. Sounds jealous 🤔

  • Mid life crisis?

  • Damn good song

  • Listen to him pardi yes

  • My friends and I randomly walked into this music video lol

  • 😮

  • This is just as shitty and uninspired as modern country. Go back to playing rock and nu-metal you hack.

  • I was hesitant to listen to him since Staind because I am not a big country fan but I love Aaron so I gave it a listen. Its.pretty good. I would go see him when he plays my hometown.

  • Funny how a ROCKER had to teach these fools about country music. 🤘

  • Negan?

  • My doc said I was Vitamin Country deficient so I grabbed a bottle of Jimmy Beam and have been playing Aaron on repeat. I'm feeling better already.

  • That shits country….. so kiss my country fudge xx

  • I like this song.

  • just ace

  • Luke combs, Aaron Lewis, Chris Stapleton. That tour would sell so fucking fast!

  • Reason I stopped listening to country music in the 1990s as a kid: loss of steel pedal guitar. Not using it would be like metal not using distortion!

  • Well that sucked definitely not country

  • How does everyone feel about his "country twang"? I personally hate it. I think he can sing anything and make it sound amazing l, but this Twang…. hes not even from the south where that kind of twang is just the norm. I dunno, thoughts?

  • Youth Was Fun

  • Who does the guitat playing in the beginning?

  • Cmon everyon I love this song don’t get me wrong it’s great. But he straight up copied Good Direction by Billy Currington. It’s so obvious

  • It's a good thing I still listen to the greats like George strait, Alan Jackson, Joe diffie, Randy travis, Hank Williams Jr and so on

  • Steel guitar brings me back to Alan Jackson :,)

  • Got a phat load of beach but for quite a few people, cause I'm old enough to know

  • absolutely love this lol screw the modern bro pop bs they try to call country…..love Aaron

  • Been a fan of his forever …if he touches it.. its GOLDEN

  • Aaron I've listened to everything you have even done. And a country rendition of Zoe Jane would be amazing.

  • God I love this so much. it has a key element joy simple and fun 2 step

  • This is real country,,It's all about the shuffle. props to Aaron..

  • Nice consert last night

  • Who knew a grunge rock singer can make better country music than actual country singers….🤷‍♂️

  • Anybody else just like to hear that “and David Allan Coe is singing bout his kin” that note he hits when he sings it

  • Can I say…..HELL YEAH!!!!!!

  • I stopped listening to the new "Country" because its all the same, Girls, jacked up trucks, and beer. New country song don't tell stories anymore. Its always about those same 3 things

  • Just realized today Aaron is also a country singer.. this is really weird for me.. still not sure what to think. Fake county accent.. typical nostalgic inducing lines that also come from most other modern country singers.. this is so generic.. just saw Staind last year at Aftershock festival.. i was wondering why he said "sorry but now I'm back.." just always went to my go-to favorite Staind songs didn't realize what had happened.

  • Yeah the music they play on the radio ain't country at all. A millennial told me that Florida Georgia Line were better than Brooks and Dunn. These singers are now are ridiculous and I refuse to listen to what they call country music now.

  • Good music🤠🎤🎸🎼🤠🇺🇸🇳🇴

  • Old town Road now that ain't country

  • Aaron Lewis has always been cool!

  • Wait… Isn't this the guy that cries and cusses out the crowd when they're talking too much? Lolz
