AARON LEWIS ON RECORDING AND FOLDED FLAG
About Aaron Lewis:
Aaron Lewis, the self-proclaimed “Northern Redneck” and Staind front man, achieved critical and commercial success with his latest album, SINNER, which earned him the #1 position on the Billboard Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts upon release.
The 12-track project, voted one of Whiskey Riff’s 40 Best Country Albums of 2016, was recorded in 16 hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with producer Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones).
Lewis penned eight of the songs, in addition to covering Chris Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You” and The Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier.” Additionally, Lewis collaborates with Willie Nelson on the album’s title track while Grammy Award-winning artists Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski and Vince Gill are also featured. SINNER was also one of Billboard’s 10 Best Country Albums of 2016, while The Boot raves, “Aaron Lewis shows a surprising understanding and respect for country music with his latest album, SINNER.
Drawing from his childhood influences of listening to country music in his grandfather’s car, SINNER shows Aaron’s abilities as a singer, songwriter, musician and stylist. SINNER might just be the record that propels Aaron to a permanent place in country music.”

The sweetest and most decadent competition of the season is back with even more flavor and fun on the return of Spring Baking Championship, with back-to-back new episodes beginning on Sunday, March 12th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network. The action unfolds as host Jesse Palmer welcomes a new batch of nine of the country's best bakers as they compete to create the most impressive springtime desserts to butter up the tough-love judges Nancy Fuller, Duff Goldman and Lorraine Pascale. The bakers' skills and techniques must measure up in themed challenges celebrating spring, from Easter confections to derby desserts, and from morsels for mom to patriotic goodies. Only one baker will rise to the top to take home the grand prize of $50,000 and the title of Spring Baking Champion! "Creative challenges and bountiful baked goods fill the new season of Spring Baking Championship. Plus, host Jesse Palmer adds to all the new freshly-baked fun of the competition,"said Didi O'Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel. In each of the seven hour-long episodes, the bakers must whip through two rounds of challenges and sift through surprising twists along the way. It's no cakewalk, but the one baker with the tastiest treat in the pre-heat will earn a special advantage in the main-heat.
