Aaron Lewis Releases Keith Whitley Song That Was Never Recorded, “Burnt The Sawmill Down”

Keith Whitley and Jim Elliot wrote “Burnt The Sawmill Down” decades ago, but it was never released, or recorded. Whitley tragically died in 1989 following a battle with alcoholism.

On Aaron Lewis’ new album, State I’m In, he was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to record, and release that very song.

Hear “Burnt The Sawmill Down” for the first time below.
