"It's Been Awhile" (heh) since Staind-frontman-turned-country-boi Aaron Lewis made headlines for telling a Rio Grande Valley crowd that he doesn’t speak Spanish because he’s American.

But, regardless of how backwards-as-fuck the Lewis' statement was, the subsequent hasn't exactly pumped the brakes on his tour.



Iconic New Braunfels venue Gruene Hall — a frequent stop for country and America acts — recently posted that the “Mudshovel” singer soon will be making an appearance.

Maybe since he’s further away from the border, he’ll feel more comfortable.

Heads up, Aaron — there are Mexican-Americans in New Braunfels too! (Insert grito here.)
