AARON LEWIS TO HEADLINE THE 2013 JÄGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR
New Rochelle, NY (April 9, 2013) — Jägermeister, a brand as deeply rooted in music as it is in mythology and lore, is proud to announce their 2013 Country Tour with music star Aaron Lewis. The tour kicks off May 1st with each show featuring special guest support acts including Jägermeister artist and emcee, Rick Monroe.
Jägermeister, the 7th largest selling premium spirit in the world and #1 selling imported liqueur in the United States, has a long history of supporting musicians of all genres, from local bands to national acts. The brand has spent almost two decades developing artists and has seen many go from obscurity to the top of their fields. Now in its fourth year, the Jägermeister Country Music Tour has featured some of the finest in country music including Pat Green, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley. “This tour is a great opportunity to work with Aaron and we are very excited to be a part of this new chapter of his career,” says Cliff Rigano, Director of Music Marketing for Jägermeister.
Aaron Lewis made his journey to the country scene in 2011 with the release of his debut EP, Town Line, and the success of the gold-selling single “Country Boy,” featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels. The seven-song EP reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200. Lewis finished the year with nominations from the Academy of Country Music for “Vocal Event of the Year,” as well as two CMT nominations for “Breakthrough Video of the Year” and “Collaborative Video of the Year.” Building upon the demand from his fans for a full-length solo album, Aaron Lewis proudly shares his country roots with the release of The Road, which hit stores on November 13, 2012, debuting in the Top 10 on Billboard Country Albums chart. His current single, “Forever” has broken into the Top 40 at radio, reaching #39 and still climbing. With seven studio albums released totaling sales over 15 million units throughout his 17 plus year career, country listeners will find a true work of art as Lewis honors traditional country, a genre the singer/songwriter was raised on as a child.
"Jägermeister has grown to be one of the most respected brands within the music world, and I am happy to be a part of the family,” states Aaron Lewis.
