AEROSMITH lead guitarist Joe Perry has dismissed his longtime bandmate Steven Tyler‘s decision to record a country album.
In May 2015, Tyler released his first country single, “Love Is Your Name”, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Streaming Songs chart. He followed it up with “Red White & You”, which came out last month.
“Hey, if I didn’t know him when I heard the song I’d go, ‘It’s okay, next.'” Perry told USA Today. “I’m not going to say anything else about that.”
He added: “Steven is in Nashville doing whatever he’s doing. He’s got a [bleeping] rhinestone cowboy hat going ‘Yippee ki yay.’ I don’t know what else to say about that.”
Tyler‘s full-length country debut is tentatively due later in the year. The effort will be released via Dot Records, the legendary label that Scott Borchetta and his Big Machine Label Group revived in 2014.
