Steven Tyler Debuts Country Single
Everyone’s buzzing about this season’s American Idol winner, Nick Fradiani, but the other big news coming from last night’s finale is Steven Tyler’s live performance debut of his very first Country single, “Love Is Your Name.”
The Aerosmith front man discovered the song after performing a couple tunes at the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and as says, “the rest will be history.”
“Country music means so much to me because it’s the first records I ever sang along with and that would be The Everly Brothers who first opened up my eyes to start singing way back at the age of nine. My inspiration for ‘Love Is Your Name’ came when I was invited to The Bluebird Cafe with Marti Frederiksen who I wrote ‘Jaded’ with to perform that song and another little diddy I wrote called ‘Dream On’ on the piano and after we were done this beautiful young lady sat down and did a song called ‘Love Is Your Name.’ Well, I fell in love with it that night and a guy comes up to the table introduced himself as Scott Borchetta, said he had this big label in Nashville. And I said ‘you know that’s been on the back burner of mine for years is to do a country record.’ So I joined up with him and the rest is gonna be history.”
There is no word yet on when fans can expect Steven’s first solo Country album.
