Not one for subtly, Steven Tyler made aÂ poised appearance to announceÂ his latest project.
Mar 31stÂ at theÂ Grand Ole Opry had quite the show asÂ Charlie Daniels headlinedÂ a bill with newer acts Aaron Watson and Eric Paslay. But as Paslay performed, rockerÂ Steven Tyler stepped on the circular stageÂ toÂ announce hisÂ firstÂ country album.Â Â According toÂ Rolling Stone,Â the lead singer ofÂ AerosmithÂ now lives inÂ Nashville andÂ took the city’s most famous stage on TuesdayÂ to announce the soloÂ country record.
Big Machine will likely release the unnamed album, which has yet to be given a release date.
The New Hampshire native grew up on country music and sangÂ in recent years with well-known country acts like Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Jenna Kramer. Tyler has supposedly been writing withÂ The Cadillac Three singerÂ andÂ guitarist Jaren Johnston, per Rolling Stone.Â Johnston could very well appear on the album, and Tyler’s large voice could attract otherÂ big-name collaborators. Even if the album isÂ a completelyÂ solo project, he’ll surely bringÂ aÂ distinctÂ sound and attitude towards country music and hisÂ new home inÂ the Music City.
