ABC Radio News has interviewed Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler about (among other things), his forthcoming solo album, the CMA Awards, his pursuit of a career in country music.
Here is an excerpt:
On Wednesday, Steven Tyler helped announced the nominees for the 2015 CMA Awards, “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” during a special appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America. The Aerosmith frontman, of course, has been exploring country music himself lately, as he continues to work on his first solo album in Nashville.
The 67-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer tells ABC Radio that he’s hoping to release the record by “February or so” of 2016, and is planning to support it with a tour before heading out on an Aerosmith trek later in the year. As for just how “country” the material on the upcoming album will be, Tyler explains that the project is still taking shape, so he isn’t quite sure.
