Although Aerosmith’s frontman, Steven Tyler has been tearing up the rock world for decades, there was a point in time when he gave country music a little taste.

In March of 2015, Tyler announced that he was working on his first solo country album. After signing with Dot Records – a division of Big Machine Label Group – he began working on the album, We’re All Somebody From Somewhere. Tyler’s inspiration for the album rooted from artists he grew up listening to including The Everly Brothers and Patsy Cline.

Tyler’s first single off the album, “Love Is Your Name” was heavily promoted across the country music platform. In January 2016, Tyler released the second single, “Red, White, & You.” The twangy intro and upbeat rhythm made it fit in perfectly with other songs in its league. Although Tyler has a bit of a raspy loud voice, it made for a great addition to the song.

Plus it was the perfect summer song for that upcoming season.

Tyler’s album, We’re All Somebody From Somewhere was finally finished and released on July 15, 2016. The album debuted at number one on the Top Country Albums and made its way onto several international charts following. A couple of other songs made an impression including “Janie’s Got a Gun.”
