Country Music’s Aaron Lewis returns to The Bluestone at 583 East Broad Street Columbus, Ohio on October 17th and 18th 2019. Tickets for the events will go on sale Friday August 16th for both nights. Aaron Lewis has played The Bluestone many times since 2012. Both shows are expected to sell out quickly like years before.
If your looking for an amazing show, don’t miss this one! Aaron Lewis will blow your mind with many of his original Country songs as well as many songs from his other band Staind.
Coming of age during the post-grunge, nu-metal explosion of the mid-‘90s, Staind, fronted by Aaron Lewis, saw success across seven albums, particularly around its darkly emotive 2001 ballad, “It’s Been Awhile.” But Lewis the solo artist has gone country. It’s been nearly a decade since he kicked things off with the 2010 single “Country Boy,” featuring Charlie Daniels and George Jones. The aggro intensity that serves Lewis well in Staind translates powerfully into twangy, plainspoken country, as he sings in “God and Guns” from his third and latest solo album, “State I’m In.” https://variety.com/2019/music/news/stainds-aaron-lewis-on-his-solo-country-act-and-political-correctness-1203188656/

David Nail has spent a decade leaving his unique mark on modern country music. He reaches a new creative peak with 2018’s Only This and Nothing More, a record that matches his longtime melodic chops with atmospheric rock & roll guitars, lush keyboards, drum loops, and rule-breaking arrangements. Billed not as a solo album, but as a project by David Nail and the Well Ravens, Only This and Nothing More finds its frontman leaving behind the familiar comfort of his longtime record label and, instead, uncovering new ground with help from two longtime partners; multi-instrumentalist Andrew Petroff and producer Jason Hall. Inspired not only by his country roots, but also the guitar-heavy stomp of Oasis, the reverb-heavy wash of Ryan Adams, the rhythmic punch of the Black Keys, and the anthemic swell of Kings of Leon, Nail and the Well Ravens co-wrote a collection of songs that placed a contemporary spin on older sounds. The result is David Nail’s most sonically adventurous work to date, as well as his first release as an independent artist. He’s a country crooner one moment, an indie rocker the next, and a diversely compelling frontman throughout. Most importantly, he’s an artist following his muse, making music without rules or regulations.
Just in time for Halloween, here’s a cultishly creative masquerade video for “Need to Breathe,” a fast moving. spot-on single from Curb Records’ platinum-selling duo Love And Theft. This official video artfully shares the sense of urgency offered in this fun, rockin’ banjo-laden, love-soaked anthem.
With “Need To Breathe,” Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson, the duo behind Love and Theft, mark the next step in this country chart-topping band’s musical journey, leading to an anticipated new album release in January 2019.

It’s Cody Johnson’s time.
After landing two releases in the Top 10 of Billboard’s country albums chart on his own CoJo label and selling 74,000 tickets for a single show, to earn recognition as the only unsigned artist in history to sell out NRG Stadium at RodeoHouston, one of Texas’ most-sought-after talents finally agreed to sign with a major label. Warner Music Nashville won a Music Row sweepstakes and enticed Johnson – who’d turned down several majors before – to join the team and take a shot at turning a concert success story into one with multimedia, national hit-making cred.
Johnson’s passionate, rowdy concerts have already drawn comparisons to Garth Brooks, and the music from his previous albums – inspired by ‘90s country foundations, but built for the 21st century – has made him a familiar presence on Texas and Oklahoma red-dirt radio.
Johnson’s introductory Warner project, Ain’t Nothin’ to It, ups the ante. After writing the bulk of his previous material, he put out word in Nashville that he was open to songs from other sources, and the results were astonishing. A-list writers – including Chris Stapleton, Radney Foster and Brothers Osborne guitarist John Osborne – came to the table with songs that suited Johnson’s life and disposition. Music fans who are just now coming to the table will get a quick understanding of Johnson, from the rowdy troublemaker in the swampy “Doubt Me Now” to the devoted family man in the title track to the self-penned ex-bull rider in “Dear Rodeo” to the devoted Christian in “His Name Is Jesus.”
Love and Theft will be performing LIVE at The Bluestone on Friday, February 15th, 2019

“We wanted to show a different side and make a record that sounds like us,” Stephen Barker Liles says of Love and Theft’s boundary-pushing new album Whiskey On My Breath. “Country music has always been about honest performances and songs that mean something, and that’s the kind of record that we wanted to make.”
“We’re at a different place, in our music and in our lives, than we were when we made our earlier records, and we wanted this album to reflect that,” agrees his longstanding musical partner Eric Gunderson. “We worked harder and more passionately on this record than anything we’ve ever done. The whole experience was refreshing and inspiring for us.”
Whiskey On My Breath—the duo’s third album—marks a significant creative statement for the two singer-songwriter-guitarists, whose resume already includes a long series of career highlights. Having already established themselves as one of country’s hottest young acts with such memorable hits as the #1 country smash “Angel Eyes” and the Top 10 hit “Runaway,” and their widely acclaimed albums World Wide Open and Love and Theft, the ACM/CMA/CMT-nominated twosome take their music to the next level on Whiskey On My Breath.
Billy Gibbons had plenty of help getting the blues for his upcoming second solo album, The Big Bad Blues; both from his assortment of musical collaborators and, on the track “Missin’ Yo’ Kissin’,” from Gilligan Stillwater, the woman he affectionately (and legally) calls Miz Gibbons.
“That was a gift,” the ZZ Top mainstay tells Billboard about the track, whose lyric video premieres exclusively below. “We had gotten maybe five (songs) recorded, and my lovely sweetheart Gilligan was scribbling away on the couch. I was, ‘Omigod, she’s reading the Chanel catalog. Hide the credit card!’ Then she took a break and the engineers kinda glanced over the scribbling and said, ‘Hey man, this looks pretty good. This could be nice and bluesy if we put something to it,’ which we did.
“Of course, I was like, ‘Why does that say ‘Missin’ Yo’ Kissin’?’ I hope she’s writing it about ME!'”
Due out Sept. 21 and the follow up to 2015’s Perfectamundo, The Big Bad Blues is an 11-track collection of Gibbons originals and covers of songs by Muddy Waters and Bob Diddley, some played on a Gretsch Duo-Jet guitar Gibbons “dusted off” just for the sessions in Houston. The set takes a different stylistic tact than the Afro-Cuban flavor of Perfectamundo, which Gibbons says came at the suggestion of Concord Records chief John Burk. “We had such a nice success, surprisingly, with such an unusual release, and then (Burk) said to me, ‘How would you feel about returning to some of your bluesier roots,'” Gibbons recalls. “I said, ‘I think that’ll be fine.’ That’s how we started, and we’re still walking that line.” Hitting the studio in Texas, Gibbons started playing for fun with drummer Greg Morrow and engineer Joe Hardy playing bass; Hardy had the temerity to record their jams, which put The Big Bad Blues in motion.
“It was really good, really natural,” Gibbons says. “After about three days (Hardy) said, ‘Would you like to hear some of the stuff?’ I said, ‘Well, what do you mean?’ He said, ‘I’ve been recording the whole outing.’ That’s where the Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley numbers came from. It felt pretty good so I got busy and started writing some originals, and all in all we think that we hit on something alright.”
Gibbons will hit the road to promote The Big Bad Blues on Oct. 13 in Iowa with a “nice little outfit” that includes Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, The Cult, Velvet Revolver) on drums. His solo work will, of course, work alongside ZZ Top, which is on the road through August but is also hatching plans for a 50th anniversary celebration during 2019. Gibbons says bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard have already presented him with some “starter pieces” they’ve been working on in the studio, while other ideas are being exchanged about how the group will commemorate its five-decade mark.
“It’s such a rarity to find this, the same three guys playing the same three chords and you look up and say, ‘Gee, it’s 50 years!’ That’s pretty wild,” Gibbons says. “I think it’s cause for celebration. We’ll certainly pull out all the stops. Furthermore, it gives us a good excuse to go back and relearn some of the stuff we’re supposed to already know….”

Morgan Wallen Turns The Bluestone “Up Down” With Ray Fulcher and Matt Chase!
Last night’s show kicked off with country newcomer, Matt Chase playing an acoustic show. His camouflage pants and black graphic t-shirt matched the laid-back feel he brought to The Bluestone. His debut single, “Catch Girl” delivered an attention-grabbing melody, strong lyrics and showed off his smooth vocals.
The second artist to take the stage was Ray Fulcher. If you’re a fan of Luke Combs, you’ve already had the pleasure of hearing his outstanding lyrical abilities, as he co-wrote eight of the twelve songs on Combs’ debut album. Fulcher’s setlist encompassed a few of those songs including, “Beer Can,” “Be Careful What You Wish For,” and his first number one, “When It Rains It Pours.”
Fulcher’s opening song, “Song of the Summer” brought an upbeat, groovy beach feel to the crowd. During the set he made a priority to get around the stage with an energetic demeanor, keeping the crowd excited and engaged.
For Fulcher, playing The Bluestone was an exciting moment; “The history is incredible, and the energy is very different from any venue out there,” he said.
After a short break, the headliner Morgan Wallen took the stage. He is one of country music’s newcomers, but his fun-loving personality makes his show one you do not want to miss. His opening song, “Boots on the Ground” is a party song that has not yet been released. Wallen’s stage presence was infectious as he danced with the crowd and skittered across the stage with a big smile, performing his songs perfectly.
Wallen admitted that he likes to play an Eric Church song during every show and then led into Church’s “Drink A Little Drink.” The crowd became rowdy and joined in, singing along while raising their beer bottles high.
Wallen brought Fulcher back to the stage to perform a cover of Brooks and Dunn’s “Play Something Country,” keeping the crowd enthusiastic. His set took a step away from country music for a mash-up of songs including Linkin Park’s “In The End,” Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name,” and Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.”
The crowd was also treated to a handful of unreleased songs that are expected to be on Wallen’s upcoming album. The songs matched his spunky personality ranging from the topics of football to trying to get an ex-lover back. Songs like “Whiskey Glasses,” “Little Rain” and his version of “You Make It Easy” (written by Wallen and recently released by Jason Aldean) were placed perfectly throughout the set to slow the mood down and give the audience a chance to truly focus on the lyrics.
The show ended with Wallen’s current hit single, “Up Down.” The song has a swampy guitar sound that goes with the lyrics about fishing and drinking. This last one was clearly a crowd favorite as the singing along echoed back to Wallen throughout the entirety of the song.
At the end of the night, each artist took time to meet fans, take photos, and sign autographs at the back of the venue. While each of these acts’ music careers is just beginning, the show provided a promising insight into what is ahead. Fans left the evening still excited and prepared to purchase a ticket for the next time these acts are in town.
