Just a few days ago, Aaron Lewis stirred up some controversy by calling out the likes of Sam Hunt, Luke Bryan and more for ruining country music. This morning, he called in to The Bobby Bones Show to discuss those comments.
Lewis backpedals a bit, saying he was just “playing to the crowd” but doesn’t “hate” anyone.
“I’ve actually sat and gotten quite drunk with Dan + Shay. I don’t hate them at all,” Aaron said. “This was not an attack on their character in any way shape or form. You have to put it into context. This was a motorcycle rally in Colorado where everybody was on their way to Sturgis. This was a bunch of black leather-clad wearing, older folks. I was playing to the crowd.”
However, Lewis stands behind his feelings and his statement, saying “You have to put it into context…I wasn’t trying to piss in anyone’s Corn Flakes…maybe I didn’t need to pull anyone’s name into it but I stand behind the statement that I made.”
