Years before dropping his solo debut, the Town Line EP, singer and guitarist Aaron Lewis rose to pop prominence as the frontman for Staind. Coming together in the mid-1990s, the Massachusetts-based quartet has racked up some of post-grunge's biggest hits, including "It's Been Awhile," the brooding anthem that utterly dominated modern-rock radio for most of 2001. In 2010, with Staind enjoying some rare downtime in between tours, Lewis decided to enter the studio and record a handful of tunes. Though he had struck out on his own with the 2000 single "Outside" (recorded during the Family Values Tour with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst), the new material was a totally different beast. Released in 2011, Town Line found Lewis ditching riff-heavy hard rock for smooth country pop laced with pedal steel, vintage organ and Eagles-inspired harmonies. In a nod to country music's rich sense of history and tradition, the EP's lead single, "Country Boy," contains cameos from honky-tonk legend George Jones and irascible George W. Bush supporter Charlie Daniels. Despite testing the solo waters, Lewis has said on several occasions that Staind has no intention of calling it quits anytime soon.

Zac Brown Band
Runtime: 1 hr 56 min"Not only is this a stellar recording of a nearly flawless performance, but it's also peppered with star-studded cameos and a few cover songs of the household-favorite variety. More importantly, it reveals Zac Brown and his band in their most comfortable and confident element — the live setting. Nothing against Brown's recorded material, but after hearing this October 30, 2009 concert from Atlanta, there's really no argument that Brown and band prefer the stage to the studio. The fawning ""Whatever It Is"" opens the set with rootsy instruments twanging and grinding under Brown's good ol' boy drawl, but you can almost hear the high-fives in the crowd following an excellent cover of the Band's ""The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."" They do similar justice to a barn-burning rendition of ""The Devil Went Down To Georgia."" Kid Rock lends his graveled growl on a Zippo-hoisting version of Marshall Tucker Band's ""Can't You See"" and it's great to hear Shawn Mullins pipe in on the Jimmy Buffett-esque ""Toes,"" though it's Little Big Town's lush harmonic panorama on the heartwarming ""Colder Weather"" that shines brightest here."
