This is how rock legend Steven Tyler describes his love affair with Music City:
“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,” Tyler said in a press release.
The Aerosmith frontman has been living in Nashville since January and is about to release a solo country album. And the first single — “Love Is Your Name” — was released Wednesday (May 13). He recorded the music in Nashville at Blackbird Studio, which is owned by Martina McBride’s husband John.
Tyler’s Twitter account is packed with pictures of him hanging out with some of country music’s finest: Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, the Cadillac Three, Eric Paslay and a seat holder image of Taylor Swift at the recent ACM Awards. With connections like that, it looks like he might be here to stay.
