Steven Tyler to Debut Country Single on ‘American Idol’

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler will premiere his first country single on this season’s American Idol finale.

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will debut his first country single on an upcoming episode of American Idol.

He announced via social media that he will perform his first single, “Love Is Your Name,” on the May 13 season finale. Tyler was previously a judge on the popular FOX reality show.

Although Tyler is most well known for his eccentric rock image, he says country music has influenced him from an early age.

“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 Taste of Country. “I’ve been working with some f—ing epic Nashville songwriters, getting my feet wet with their style and groove.”
Tyler’s record does not yet have a name or release date.
