Keith Anderson's New Single Features Aerosmith Vocalist
Aerosmith's Steven Tyler makes a guest appearance on Keith Anderson's new single, the title track from his debut album, Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll. The album was produced by Big & Rich's John Rich, but the single being released was remixed by producer Mark Hudson, who added Tyler's vocal. Hudson got the idea after noticing a reference to Aerosmith in the song's lyrics. "Steven is a huge country fan," Hudson says. "He actually turned me on to Kitty Wells, stuff like that. We've had many conversations about the elements of how rock 'n' roll began, and it really did begin with country -- folks like Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Chet Atkins." Anderson notes, "Oh, my gosh. When I saw the video of him singing what I wrote, it was such a thrill."
