Video Premiere: STEVEN TYLER’s First Country Single ‘Love Is Your Name’
The official video for AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler‘s first country single, “Love Is Your Name”, can be seen below. The clip, which was filmed just outside Nashville, was previewed this morning on ABC‘s “Good Morning America” before it went live online.
“Love Is Your Name” recently landed at position No. 33 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart (dated May 30). The track, written by Lindsey Lee and Eric Paslay, was aided by hourly plays on participating iHeartMedia stations in its first day of release (May 13); Tyler also performed the song that night on the season finale of Fox‘s “American Idol”.
Tyler, who recently signed to Dot Records underneath the Big Machine Label Group umbrella (Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw), issued the single across multiple media properties and is promoting the track with exclusive interviews.
Tyler revealed to USA Today that he won’t get a chance to complete his solo album until after AEROSMITH finishes a two-month North American tour that kicked off on June 13 in Glendale, Arizona.
“I’ve got to find time to come back and record these songs after the AEROSMITH tour,” Tyler said. “But I flit from flower to flower, country to country, looking for good times and singing about the last time. That’s what I’m putting into the country songs.”
“Love Is Your Name” was recorded at the famed Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Dann Huff.
In a statement Tyler said that, “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.”
AEROSMITH‘s summer tour includes a performance at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Concert For Legends on August 7 in Canton, Ohio.
