“It’s Been a While” since metal rock group Staind graced the airwaves, but the group’s frontman, Aaron Lewis, has taken a turn for country music and is touring in support of his recently released solo album, “The Road.” While his twangy new direction is quite different from his metal work, he’s received praise from such country icons as George Jones and Charlie Daniels. Lewis will trade in the noise for an acoustic set featuring his new solo work — and maybe a Staind song or two — when he performs at Innsbrook After Hours on Wednesday, May 1, at 5 p.m. $12-$35. innsbrookafterhours.com.
