I won't waste your time like other reviewers have done; complaining about how short this cd is. It's an EP. It's supposed to be short. The price reflects that. All is well with the world. The real reason I think anyone's complaining about it's length to begin with is because every song here is beautifully constructed and performed. Simply put, everyone is wanting MORE. Aaron Lewis has a voice made for this kind of country music. If we have to live in a world without Keith Whitley, Aaron Lewis is the next best thing for this genre. And I love Staind. So if you do too and have even the slightest appreciation for country music, then you will not regret buying this. Some rock artists are making very shallow attempts to break into this market. But there's nothing shallow about this.

I've been a huge advocate for Aaron Lewis for years now. Ever since I first heard `Mudshovel' I've been a gigantic fan of Staind and I've always toted Lewis as the greatest voice in modern rock music, and even when the band shed their heavy edge and rerouted their sound to a more acoustic and melodic vibe I still considered them superior to most rock bands out there. They really know how to stay true to themselves and they evolve with grace. Hearing Aaron Lewis attempt country music should come off as a huge surprise. His voice has the raspy wholesomeness needed to capture the spirit of country music whist maintaining enough rock edge to constitute southern rock as apposed to straight up country music.

Think Nickleback with a better vocalist.

The EP, `Town Line', isn't a home run for Aaron. It has its moments, but I'm anticipating something a little fuller from him, whenever he releases a full length album. I've been anticipating a solo effort from him for years, and ideally it would be Aaron, an acoustic guitar and some heartache; but I'll take a country album if that's what he wants to do.

The three versions of `Country Boy' are decent enough. The album version with aid from George Jones and Charlie Daniels is ok, but I am not a political person and the whole country political jargon at the end of the song is off putting (and I only accept `weed' talk from rappers...and if you are going to pick a word to rhyme with `truck', please don't use the word `buck'). The acoustic version and the Radio Edit are better (since they don't contain the spoken word political speech at the end), but I'm not totally fond of the song itself.

I much prefer `The Story Never Ends', the albums opener.

I am the first to admit, I do not know a thing about Staind or Aaron Lewis, but when I first heard "Country Boy" I was completely left speechless. What a rare quality Aaron Lewis has both in his songwriting ability and his voice! When it comes to his music, one word comes to mind - WOW! Sorry, that's the only word that truly describes what I'm listening to. Aaron is one of the few songwriters that composes pieces that can crossover from rock to country with the simple change of an instrument. His instrument of choice is an acoustic guitar and his uncomplicated, simplistic yet powerful vocal ability and that's more than enough to turn a simple piece of music into a work of musical art. The bare instrumentation and writing, combined with Aaron's one of kind vocals makes for a winning outcome.

"Country Boy", the debut single and video have carved out Aaron's place in country music as a serious artist, one to be reckoned with and respected. The song has earned him the top spot on the country albums chart and 2 CMT Music Awardnominations, one for "Breakthrough Video of the Year" and "Collaborative Video of the Year". This lead in single has taken radio and television networks like CMT by storm and has fast become one of the most requested songs/videos and is an obvious fan favorite. The song tells the story of Aaron's crossover into country music and his view from the eyes of a true country boy that tried the Hollywood life of a rock star and decided that it just isn't who he is. The 7 song cd features 3 versions of this song: the original, the radio edit and an amazing acoustic version.

"The Story Never Ends" is another outstanding song, and one of my top 3 favorites on the cd.

I totally understand why he released three versions of Country Boy. I listen to both rock and country music and know that hard-core rock or mainstream fans probably won't like the country version with the political lyrics (most likely because they've been misled by television about what all of that means). The country fans will, like me, probably LOVE LOVE LOVE them and be hungry for more. He's making a living and testing the waters. I'm seriously tired of hearing rock lyrics that degrade women and glorify using drugs and dying. We live in scary times if you pay attention to anything going on and some of us want to hear more patriotic lyrics in our music. I thank him for being willing to sing about being a proud American that values hard work and self-reliance. Keep it up Aaron!
