Sometimes it is incomprehensible that we get the kind of exclusive information that we do here at Country Music’s #CMchat. The best times are when we don’t even see those announcements coming and we are as surprised as the community.
That’s exactly what happened tonight during Jessica Northey’s #CMchat Humpday Hookup Twitterview with Eric Paslay. When Eric was prompted to answer a question about songwriting with and for Steven Tyler, the cat came flying out of the bag! According to Eric, Steven Tyler will premiere his FIRST COUNTRY MUSIC single, “Love Is Your Name,” on American Idol on May 13th. Why does he have this insider information? Well, because Eric co-wrote the song!
Now, if all of this is causing you to scratch your head and you are wondering why Steven Tyler would be performing something in the country genre, you missed the big news earlier this year. Aerosmith’s former front man decided to go from “Janie Got a Gun” to “Janie’s Got a Shotgun,” move to Nashville, sign with Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group (Dot Records), and cut a record for our listening pleasure. Hal-le-lu-jah!
To experience some sweeeeeeeeeeet emooooootion, as well as ear candy, from Steven Tyler, make sure to tune into American Idol on Wednesday, May 13th, on FOX!
