Outspoken Entertainer to Appear on CBS Late Night Following the CMA Awards ________________________________________________________________ Show: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Date: Wednesday, November 2 Time: 11:35pm ET / 10:35pm CT Network: CBS (Check local listings) ________________________________________________________________ NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 31, 2016) – While Nashville celebrates the CMA Awards, outspoken and sometimes controversial singer/songwriter Aaron Lewis will make his debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday (11/2) at 11:35pm ET / 10:35pm CT on CBS (check local listings). Singing a hit from his recent No. 1 album SINNER, Lewis will once again show why traditional Country still has a place in the mainstream. “I grew up listening to the Country greats – Willie, Merle and Waylon” said Lewis. “When turn on the radio in my car, I don’t even recognize what is now considered ‘Country’ music. So it was important to me when making this new album that I was true to myself and what I believe is good music. My mouth often gets me in trouble when I express this opinion, but it’s the truth.” Lewis recently kicked off his SINNER TOUR in LA with a sold-out show at The Troubadour and continues to make its run on the West Coast this week. He will head to New York City on November 15 for a special headlining date at The Beacon Theater for Budweiser One Night Only: Aaron Lewis.
