Aerosmith’s Joe Perry Not A Fan of Steven Tyler’s Move To Country Music
Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry did an interview with USA Today and slammed his longtime bandmate Steven Tyler’s decision to record a country album.
In May 2015, Tyler released his first country single, “Love Is Your Name”, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Streaming Songs chart. He followed it up with “Red White & You”.
“Hey, if I didn’t know him when I heard the song I’d go, ‘It’s okay, next.'” Perry told USA Today. “I’m not going to say anything else about that.”
He added: “Steven is in Nashville doing whatever he’s doing. He’s got a [bleeping] rhinestone cowboy hat going ‘Yippee ki yay.’ I don’t know what else to say about that.”
Tyler’s country album is tentatively due later in the year. It will be released on Dot Records, the legendary label that Scott Borchetta and his Big Machine Label Group revived in 2014.
“My earliest influences put me somewhere between The Everly Brothers and the Carter Family, and this project is all about me paying homage to my country roots,” Tyler told Rolling Stone. “I’ve been working with some fucking epic Nashville songwriters, getting my feet wet with the style and groove.”
