Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Thrilled With Move To Nashville

(Radio.com) Music City has a new resident in the form of Steven Tyler. The Aerosmith frontman has been hard at work on his first country album after relocating to Nashville in early 2015. That transition from rock to country earned him Nashville Lifestyles' September cover.

Tyler opened up to the magazine about the writing process, which he's done with some of the city's greats. "The album is all co-writes. I've written with the Barlowes [Nathan and Cary], Brett James, Jaren Johnston, Hillary Lindsey, the Warren Brothers, David Hodges, Chris DeStefano, Rhett Akins-so many," he said.

More than the music industry's open arms, though, Tyler has been taken aback by residents' friendly demeanor. In fact, their big-hearted nature reminds him of his days growing up in New Hampshire.

"Even though Nashville's a big town, it's still got a small town attitude," he told the magazine. "Everybody's real nice and kind of says 'hello' to each other. I grew up in a town of 1,200 people in New Hampshire, and back in my formative years in the early '60s, you knew everybody in town." Read more here.
