Tyler releases "Love Is Your Name" video

Friday, July 3, 2015 – Steven Tyler released the music video for his debut country single, "Love Is Your Name," on ABC's Good Morning America earlier today.

Tyler, who signed to Dot Records of the Big Machine Label Group umbrella, was involved in the creative direction of the video alongside director Trey Fanjoy. The "gypsy chic" video, as Tyler calls it, was shot just outside of Nashville's city limits.

"This video has so many personal elements in it for me. I came from a family that was a touring band. I grew up as a young boy with my pet raccoon and my slingshot. My real band, Loving Mary, is featured in the video," said Tyler. "This song and video both resemble what the album will sound like."

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: Womack planned a good night – Lee Ann Womack pretty much summed up where she's at these days in concluding her show with Don Williams "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good." The ever-strong voiced country traditionalist sang, "I don't need fortune and I don't need fame" with the concluding line of the stanza asking the Man upstairs to "plan a good day for me.... »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
