Tyler debut single coming Wednesday
Monday, May 11, 2015
– Steven Tyler of Aerosmith will release his first country single, "Love Is Your Name," on May 13 via Dot Records.
"Love Is Your Name" is the first single off Tyler's debut solo album. The song was produced by Dann Huff and recorded in Nashville at Blackbird studios. Tyler has lived in Nashville since January. "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," said Tyler.
On Wednesday, iHeartMedia will host a world premiere of the song across more than 120 mainstream country stations nationwide. Tyler will interview live with iHeartMedia's Bobby Bones where he will talk about the song and his adventures in Nashville. The Bobby Bones Show is heard on more than 80 radio stations across the country and nationally through the iHeartRadio digital service.
Tyler will sit down for an exclusive interview with host Nancy O'Dell for an interview airing on Entertainment Tonight and CBS This Morning will broadcast the first TV interview with Tyler on Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. in all markets. Tyler will perform "Love Is Your Name" live on the American Idol season finale Fox that night.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Henry comes out the other end a better man
Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
