Country singer makes first tour stop at ACT

Get out your cowboy hat and pull on your boots, Aaron Lines, and special guest Jason Blaine, will make the first stop on his Moments that Matter Songs Tour at the ACT, Friday.

Whether you’re aching for a serious love ballad or a honky-tonk sing along, Lines’s new album covers it all.

“I noticed that a lot of my fans only knew one side of me, the serious side,” says Lines, . “I wanted to let people know me better on this CD. I enjoy joking around a lot and wanted to lighten things up a little bit.”

Lines has toured with the likes of Brooks and Dunn, Keith Urban, and Leann Rimes.

His songs continually top the charts. Waitin’ on the Wonderful was the most played song on Canadian country radio in 2005. Living Out Loud made the top three songs in the U.S. and You Can’t Hide Beautiful was the No. 1 video in the U.S.

Moments that Matter is lighter than what most fans would expect of Lines. But he says the CD just reflects his happiness.

“Moving home to Canada was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” says Lines. “Being closer to family really made me write from a different perspective.”
