Stephen Tyler does country

Yeah that’s what we thought…

Anyway Aerosmith legend Tyler (31) is putting out a lovely country music album and although the release date is slated for 'in the autumn' he's got a new single from the tome out in June.

Tyler’s new single, 'Love is your name' will receive its first radio play in the UK on 14 May on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2. He will also be making a number of high-profile TV appearances in the US including CBS This Morning, Entertainment Tonight and the American Idol Finale.

Says Tyler 

I picked up and headed for Tennessee, and the FIRST DAY in the studio, I recorded a song that became my first single, and if 'Love Is Your Name,' then Nashville's my new girlfriend. I guess you could call that Beginner's Luck

whatever that may mean.

For a person who with Aerosmith has sold more than 150 million records worldwide,  won four Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, and an Emmy Award this is a bit of a leap from the rock idiom into the the world of pickups and cows.

Personally I'd sooner remove my own eyes with a rusty spoon than sit through an album full of your standard country dirge so I'll be interested to hear what young Stephen makes of it.

Anyway you can pick up the single from June 29th but I expect it will be on streaming services before then if you know what they are or care.
