Not one for subtly, Steven Tyler made a poised appearance to announce his latest project.

Mar 31st at the Grand Ole Opry had quite the show as Charlie Daniels headlined a bill with newer acts Aaron Watson and Eric Paslay. But as Paslay performed, rocker Steven Tyler stepped on the circular stage to announce his first country album.  According to Rolling Stone, the lead singer of Aerosmith now lives in Nashville and took the city’s most famous stage on Tuesday to announce the solo 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 sang in recent years with well-known country acts like Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Jenna Kramer. Tyler has supposedly been writing with The Cadillac Three singer and guitarist Jaren Johnston, per Rolling Stone.  Johnston could very well appear on the album, and Tyler’s large voice could attract other big-name collaborators. Even if the album is a completely solo project, he’ll surely bring a distinct sound and attitude towards country music and his new home in the Music City.
