Steven Tyler and Friends Rock Into the Morning at Country Radio Seminar
The party couldn’t be stopped Monday night (Feb. 8), when Steven Tyler, A Thousand Horses, the Cadillac Three and Drake White joined together for an epic concert during the 2016 Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. The artists played well into the early hours of the morning at Big Machine Label Group’s show, kicking off Mardi Gras week with gusto.
Tyler headlined the show with his band Loving Mary, rocking his newest country-soaked tunes “Red, White & You” and “Love Is Your Name,” along with some Aerosmith classics like “Walk this Way” and “Cryin’.” The artist also pulled out a cover of “Piece of My Heart.” His full solo project on Dot Records is slated to come out later this year.
Leading up to Tyler were A Thousand Horses with their electric nine-piece band, showing off their Gold-certified tune “Smoke” as well as “(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial.” The Cadillac Three followed with an impressive set, including their tunes “Graffiti" and “The South," before Drake White took the stage with his band the Big Fire, featuring show highlights “It Feels Good,” “Back to Free” and his latest single, “Livin’ the Dream.”
Tyler has been everywhere recently, appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and The Howard Stern Show, and even starring in a Super Bowl commercial for Skittles. There's no word yet on a title or release date for his country record, but the icon says he’s got the best in the business working with him on it.
“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 explains. “I’ve been working with some f—ing epic Nashville songwriters, getting my feet wet with their style and groove.”
