Aaron Lewis safe after charter jet veers off runway

By Caitlin Deforest

Aaron Lewis is safe after a private charter jet he was a passenger on was disabled Saturday causing a flight cancellation. After filming a segment for his TV show “On the Road” for the Sportsman’s Channel, a mechanical error caused the Cessna Citation V jet to veer off the taxiway and become stuck in mud.

Aaron was set to depart from Warton, Texas Saturday at 1 p.m. Aaron and the television crew were tracking teal duck for his reality hunting show. After the shoot, the flight was to depart for Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Lewis was scheduled to appear that night at the BOK Center with the Brian Davis and Chase Bryant “Let It Ride” tour.

“I’m so glad that we are safe. However I am really sorry that the fans in Tulsa were disappointed with our not making the show. I promise I’ll be back to Tulsa soon,” said Lewis.

Aaron Lewis’s 2011 first solo release, Town Line, debuted at number one on Billboard’s Country Album Chart. The first single from that release, Country Boy, featured the late George Jones and Charlie Daniels and has been certified Gold. It earned Lewis multiple CMA, ACM and CMT Music Award nominations.
