Steven Tyler with Two Singles, a Summer Tour and Album on the Way

Steven Tyler 1

There is a fresh up-tempo song out on the Country billboard charts and it is super patriotic, aptly named “Red, White & You” for fans with a deep love for everything American. It is a fun piece about curing the summertime blues, needing nothing more than the American girls to lift your spirits. The Fourth of July references and tribute to classic rocker Tom Petty definitely will be making this a top single to play during the national holiday, dancing the night away and enjoying the beginning of summer. “Red, White & You” was co-written by Nathan Barlowe, Levi Hummon, Jon Vella and Tyler himself, produced by Dann Huff, a Nashville veteran and producer for Keith Urban and Faith Hill. It appears that with the “Love is Your Name” single released 9 months ago, a sweet ballad compared to the latest track, we are gearing up for a nice “full-on country feel” album produced by roots-recording wizard T Bone Burnett within the year.

Behind every song there is a story and that little phrase has appeared on the artist’s Twitter feed along with his single’s info. Tyler is a talent that can’t go unnoticed really, best known as the lead singer of the Boston-based band Aerosmith but no less compelling when rocking the tunes on his own as we can clearly see with this latest single. Lately he’s been in the news quite a bit, hitting the red carpet with all four children, auctioning off his Hennesey Venom GT Spyder and mourning Prince in a truly soulful manner. He’s been great for his fans as well, surprising one with Down syndrome and generally showing off a vulnerability that was unexpected with statements about fear of death after Prince’s passing. Tyler then announces tours, the Out of Limb Solo Tour to be exact, and excites us all with an All-American single that gets one appreciating all that we have in this incredible country of ours. The tour will visit 19 cities in total, kicking off on July 2nd in Las Vegas and taking him all over North America, including up to Canada.
