“Country music has become the music that best represents the reality of American life.”
“Country music is some of the best-written music in the world, so yeah, one day, I would keep my mind open to doing a country record.”
Well, we all remember how Taylor Swift got started. . . .country music. Now, one of rock’s legends has ventured into the genre. . . . the one and only Aerosmith frontman, Steve Tyler. With the release of Love is Your Name (Dot Records) Tyler joins the ranks of one of the hottest and most up and coming musical styles out there. So, how did he do? Well take a listen for yourself:
In speaking about the video for the track, Tyler had this to say:
“This video has so many personal elements in it for me. I came from a family that was a touring band. I grew up as a young boy with my pet raccoon and my slingshot. My real band Loving Mary is featured in the video. This song and video both resemble what the album will sound like.”
If nothing else, Tyler proves that he’s not a one trick pony and that Love Is Your Name is certainly not his first rodeo. Good work Steven.
