Aaron Lewis released a controversial new song that is now topping the country charts!
Written by Lewis alongside two other songwriters’ Ira Dean and Jeffrey Steele, “Am I The Only One” finds the Staind frontman singing about the removal of Confederate monuments, dissing rockstar Bruce Springsteen, detailing his liberal values and more in the new right-wing-leaning ballad.
In the song, Lewis comments on the removal of Confederate statues singing “another statue comin’ down in a town near you / watchin’ the threads of Old Glory come undone,” while also dissing Springsteen with the lyric, “Am I the only one who quits singin’ along / every time they play a Springsteen song?”

The track released on July 2 as a standalone single, marks Lewis’ first solo release of 2021.
The song has already received millions of streams during opening week and will impact Country radio on July 26 via Valory Music Group.
Additionally, Lewis recently performed the single on The Daily Wire’s Candace show.
Lewis is set to hit the road later this summer as the frontman of Staind on a co-headlining U.S. tour with Korn.
