Tyler has recently made headlines for journeying into the country genre with his single, “Love Is Your Name.” For this performance, Tyler decided to serenade the crowd with two of Aerosmith’s biggest hits. Although Zac Brown Band is known for filling their set list with lots of classic covers, no one expected Tyler to emerge onstage before the band began strumming the recognizable guitar riff from “Walk This Way.”
The group rocks out together through the crowd-pleasing anthem, then went straight into another of the band’s classics, “Sweet Emotion.” Although the band’s version of the song stayed true to the original, it still featured their funky and recognizable sound that has made them so popular with fans of all genres.
“We take it pretty seriously when we do a cover,” Zac Brown Band member Jimmy De Martini explained to AJC. “We get down note for note and add our own style, too.” Between their impressive harmonies and killer instrumental parts, you can tell that these talented musicians were having a great time during this special performance.
Zac Brown Band played three straight nights at Fenway Park for their Jekyll + Hyde Tour. You can see a full list of upcoming tour dates at their official website.
