Aaron Lewis – Lost and Lonely Lyrics

I’ve been shattered and broken, for most of my life But I’ve done pretty good, with a job and a wife Got a family that loves me, and a good piece of land That I bought with hard work, that I earned with these hands

But these things that I do I did them for you

So just tell me you love me, and tell me you’ll stay And you’ll watch over this house, while I go away And just promise to be here, when I get back home So we can start where we left off, all those years ago

Before my demons they took control Lost and lonely, out here on the road

‘Cause I’ve been careless and selfish, got no self respect I’m an albatross hanging around my own neck I’m a hard one to handle, and I’ve played the fool And I’m so hard to love, ’cause I break all the rules

But these things that I do ‘Cause I couldn’t have you

So just tell me you love me, and tell me you’ll stay And you’ll watch over this house, while I go away And just promise to be here, when I get back home So we can start where we left off, all those years ago

Before my demons they took control Lost and lonely, out here on the road

So just tell me you love me, and tell me you’ll stay And you’ll watch over this house, while I go away And just promise to be here, when I get back home So we can start where we left off, all those years ago

Before my demons they took control Lost and lonely, out here on the road

Lost and lonely, out here on the road

Chris Janson Concert Review

January 16, 2018

Chris Janson Concert Review – January 12th at The Bluestone in Columbus Ohio 

  • Chris Janson

CMA of OSU By: Kaki Tzagournis 

Last night there was a massive snowstorm leaving the streets slick and icy, however the snow didn’t stand a chance to Chris Janson fans who were determined to make it to The Bluestone in Columbus, Ohio. Despite the terrible weather, The Bluestone was packed with country music lovers ready for a fun night.

Chris Janson at The Bluestone_-10The show kicks off with country newcomer, Jacob Powell. His raspy voice and cool demeanor sparks interest in the crowd. Sporting a leather jacket he brings a rocker edge to the Bluestone. Powell performs singles “Loud” and “The Bridge” as well as covering “Come Together” by the Beatles. This country rocker gets the crowd psyched for Chris Janson.

You can tell the crowd is getting anxious when Chris Janson’s name flashes across the stage screen and everyone erupts in excitement. As the band members begin to take their places it’s the moment everyone has been waiting for, Chris Janson! Janson struts onto the stage singing “Redneck Life” from his newest album Everybody. The entire crowd is singing along as Janson bounces around the stage. His stage presence is incredible and he really knows how to work the crowd. Not only does he shred on the harmonica, but continues to dance like nobody is watching.

Chris Janson

What a Country Concert

Janson is such a genuine man and humble to be at The Bluestone. He gives a toast to the crowd for making it out in the mist of a snowstorm and states, “it’s so good to see you. You’re such a blessing.” It’s great to see an artist who appreciates their fans and gives their all on stage.

The show swings into full gear with fan favorite, “Fix A Drink.” As Janson waltzes across the stage he has a quirky and funny swagger. He goes on to teach the audience his signature silly dance moves and encourages everyone to let loose. You can tell he is extremely grateful to be performing and goes on to say, “Ohio was with me and for me before anyone else was with me and for me” helping him to pack the Bluestone twice.

As he moves to the piano he showcases another instrument that he’s mastered. Janson sings his own version of the classic “Piano Man” switching up the lyrics to fit tonight at the Bluestone. The night moves to a more serious note as Janson describes his inspiration for his newest and fastest growing single “Drunk Girl.” This song is very well written with its emotion filled lyrics and relatable storyline.

Inevitably the night draws to a close yet nobody is ready for the show to end. Janson belts out the song that launched his career “Buy Me A Boat”, which has everyone dancing and singing along.

Janson’s deep country twang and honky tonk silliness are the perfect combination for a fun show. Everybody left The Bluestone ready to buy tickets to Janson’s next concert.

Country Music has a new Star Tony Jackson

“Not so very long ago the traditionalists were proclaiming a breakthrough with Chris Stapleton leading the way, brushing aside all of that ‘nasty’ bro-country nonsense. William Michael Morgan was top of the country charts and Midland were signed by Big Machine Records. ‘Real’ country was back.

It didn’t quite work out however. Not yet anyway. Sam Hunt is fast becoming Nashville’s equivalent of Adele, dominating every chart that has the name ‘Country’ and Morgan’s follow-up single ‘Missing’ seems to have lived up to its title.

A debut album from a new artist who is as traditional as it gets seems again to be pushing against the tide.

Tony Jackson is a throwback to those days when country music was more easily defined. Days when the country charts were dominated by George Jones, Glen Campbell, Conway Twitty and Kenny Rogers. Days when you put your needle onto your vinyl and you anticipated that the sounds that you heard defended the integrity of country music.

Jackson’s musical route should not have led him along the highway to Nashville. The son of a naval vet who was reared on his Dad’s 80s R&B tunes by Earth Wind and Fire, Ashford and Simpson, Motown or his Mom’s gospel classics, a chance meeting with Randy Travis in Spain tuned his country music sat nav. Now that’s what you call destiny.

He followed his Dad into military service with the US Marines and excelled in finance as a bank executive. These were mere stepping stones to where he is today. He sang lead vocals for a non-country band ‘Half Brother Sid’ but this was a precursor to forming his own band ‘Jackson Ward’. His transformation to a bona fide country singer occurred when he recorded a tribute to George Jones after the legendary singer died in April 2013.

The tribute song ‘The Grand Tour’ was uploaded to Facebook and amassed 10 million views and 200,000 shares in three weeks. It led to a meeting with Donna Meade, widow of the late country star Jimmy Dean, her invitation to appear at the Old Dominion Barn Dance and a connection in Nashville with music veteran Jim Della Croce. This opened doors and a chance to record his own song ‘Drink By Drink’ that featured on the Country Breakout Chart.

A recording deal with DDS Entertainment followed and we now have the release of his 12 track debut album. It is an album that makes no compromises to the traditions of country music but features songs from both Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and Country Music Hall Of Fame Members.

Comparisons will obviously be made with Darius Rucker and Charley Pride but it’s probably best to rely on the wisdom of Willie Nelson who recently told Jackson that ‘we need more brothers in country music’. The album was recorded in the hallowed RCA Record Studio’s in Nashville and has contributions from Steve Cropper of Booker T fame and Vince Gill.

The songs range from the well known (Conway Twitty’s ‘It’s Only Make Believe’) to the lesser known (Lovin’ Spoonfulls’ ‘Nashville Cats’) but Jackson also excels as a songwriter in his own right.

‘Drink By Drink’ has a ‘Wagon Wheel’ feel and ‘Old Porch Swing’ shows maturity and awareness of the genre that traditionalists will lap up. The highlight for me, however, has to be ‘Do I Ever Cross Your Mind’. It’s a song that was written by Billy Burdette and Michael Smotherman rather than the Dolly Parton B-side. It’s a stunning country ballad that would have been top of our charts in the seventies when Kenny Rogers and Glen Campbell were dominant.

Listening to this album feels like the start of a journey. I’m not sure that Tony Jackson will attract too much interest from country radio but this probably won’t matter too much. Cream tends to rise to the top and the grapevine has many branches.

Frankly you won’t hear many better traditional country albums all year.”

Aaron Lewis at The Bluestone

2nd show added

Country Music artist, Aaron Lewis sells out The Bluestone July 28th and adds another show, July 27th 2017. Aaron Lewis has been playing the Bluestone located at 583 East Broad Street Columbus, Ohio for many years but has never sold it out in 12 hours. The second show was added very quickly after tickets sold in less than 24 hours. The second show for Aaron Lewis will be July 27th 2017 and tickets will go on sale Friday April 14th at 10 AM www.liveatthebluestone.com or on Eventbrite. (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wclt-presents-aaron-lewis-at-the-bluestone-tickets-32442930679)

The country singer announced last year that he would be embarking on a huge tour to promote his first album with Dot Records, Sinner, and set out a massive number of dates for fans to come check out the new music. But rather than quit right at the peak of winter, he decided to roll off of the spirit of his previous sold-out shows through the end of April.

His latest project, Sinner, released back in September, and Lewis contributed to nine of the 11 tracks on the album. Going for a more old-fashioned, rebellious vibe, he felt the need to channel his musical heroes to find the right influence throughout the record.

“I’d like to think that ‘Sinner’ is a newer take on classic, traditional Outlaw Country, Waylon and Merle and Willie, and Hank Jr. and Johnny Cash and all that stuff,” he said. “That was the music I heard a kid, and that’s the Country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.” -http://www.soundslikenashville.com/news/aaron-lewis-extends-sinner-tour/

 

Aaron Lewis returns to Columbus

Aaron Lewis in Columbus, Ohio July 28th

Aaron Lewis will return to The Bluestone in Columbus, Ohio July 28th. Get your tickets fast, Aaron Lewis has sold out the Legendary Music Venue, The Bluestone several times and is expected to do it again. www.liveatthebluestone.com or at www.Eventbrite.com (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wclt-presents-aaron-lewis-at-the-bluestone-tickets-32595308445) for tickets starting Friday April 7th at 10AM.

Grammy nominated and multi-platinum artist, Aaron Lewis,  released his sophomore solo album last year on Big Machine Label Group’s DOT Records and went straight to # 1.

The former Staind front man first made his country debut in 2011 with certified gold single “Country Boy” followed by the release of his first full length solo album, The Road. “Country Boy” featured Charlie Daniels on fiddle and a booming verse from George Jones as well as Chris Young striking a balance between classic and modern country.

Lewis’ introspective, personal and relatable lyrics are proof that country music is about lifestyle and values, not necessarily where you were raised. And as Country Weekly exclaims “…make no mistake, he is a truck-drivin’, gun-totin’ country boy.” Lewis attributes country as something that has always inspired him. Growing up in rural Vermont the singer/songwriter spent summers with his WWII veteran grandfather hunting and fishing. During that time, he developed a love for the land, the woods, and the simple life, which still permeates everything he does.

And there was one specific soundtrack to those times. “I was raised on Country music,” Lewis says. “My grandfather listened to Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Hank Jr., and all of the greats.”
And those influences are evident on stage in his new songs and in Staind hits he often performs such as “Outside,” “It’s Been Awhile,” and “So Far Away.”

Tyler Farr and Raelynn will play The Bluestone January 20th for Columbus Cares A Night of Music to benefit St Judes. Tickets are on sale now at www.liveathebluestone.com

Artists at The Bluestone - Columbus Ohio

Tyler Farr at The Bluestone January 20th 2017

“Maybe I’m addicted to pain…What used to be, what’s gone.

There’s definitely some darkness,
but it’s hard to explain, though everybody knows it.
“Probably I’m a hopeless romantic,
but sex can make that complicated, too.
“You know you want to be in love, but that’s a tricky thing to find.”

Tyler Farr’s a thinker, an observer of the human condition, a man in the middle of a surging testosterone country movement in today’s Nashville who insists on digging a little deeper, getting a little realer and owning how hard it can be. On Suffer In Peace, the son of a Garden City, Missouri farmer opens his veins and examines the pain that comes from being truly engaged with living.

From the wracked hangover of what you don’t see coming in love “Withdrawals,” the smoky acoustic “I Don’t Even Want This Beer” or the spare run-from-the-memories title track, the classically-trained vocalist knows that love isn’t just hard, it’s risky. With a resonant tenor that has a powdery bottom and a warm center, Farr heats up difficult emotions and peels back what most men barricade behind bravado.

Chris Janson The Bluestone - Columbus Ohio

Chris Janson to headline Wcol Winter Wonder Jam at The Bluestone Dec 16th 2016

Chris Janson will rock The Bluestone Stage with special guest High Valley and LanCo December 16 2016. Ticket will go on sale for Chris Janson November 23 at 10 AM. Visit www.liveatthebluestone.com for event info and tickets. This will be Chris Jansons’ First visit to the Bluestone stage.

NASHVILLE, TN – (June 30, 2016) – With his heartfelt single “Holdin’ Her” impacting the sales and singles charts, singer-songwriter Chris Janson continues to add milestones to his career.

Last week he made a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville to get a personal tour of the ACM Gallery exhibit which contains an entire case filled with Janson items. Each piece of memorabilia played a part in his rise to stardom including boots worn since his early days when he first arrived in Nashville and played shows at Tootsie’s, a Bocephus T shirt, his signature Fender harmonica and a guitar he paid $25 for and calls “the best investment I ever made.” It’s a vintage Yamaha guitar signed by Merle Haggard that Janson wrote all of the songs for his debut album “Buy Me A Boat” on and every song he’s had recorded by other artists.

“Being part of this exhibit is a top three musical achievement of my career,” said Janson. “It’s right up there with playing on the Grand Ole Opry and having my songs played on country radio.”

Janson is also the latest celebrity face to don the walls of Nashville’s famed restaurant, the Palm. Janson’s caricature is featured amongst a variety of other musicians, actors, politicians, athletes, executives, regular customers and people of note, as well as classic cartoons. “I eat there a lot,” says Janson. “My go-to is the Power Lunch — Steak, onion strings and a wedge salad. Oh and cheesecake plain.”

In addition to his current single “Holdin” Her,” look for more Janson penned songs on the charts soon as Tim McGraw just announced his next single “That’s How I’ll Always Be” and earlier this year, LoCash’s single “I Love This Life.”
