Steven Tyler Does Duet Of Willie Nelson's Crazy On Nashville
Recorded by several artists through the years, "Crazy" is most recognized as a US Top 10 hit for Patsy Cline in 1961. Last month, Tyler previewed his appearance when he tweeted a picture of him and Panettiere, writing "Hayden and I getting a little 'crazy' on set at Nashville. You won't want to miss this. #PatsyCline"
Tyler has been in Nashville since January working with songwriters on material for his debut solo album, which he recently said he's hoping to release by "February or so" of 2016, with plans to support it with a tour before heading out on an Aerosmith trek later in the year.
"I don't even know who I'm producing it with," says Tyler. "It's gonna be what it is. There's a couple of songs I've written and they're like rock, and I said, 'Oh, geez.' And I'm not gonna put a banjo on it just to make it country…I don't know what it's gonna be, but my heart leans [towards] the country feeling and the vibe."
"I think country music is the new rock 'n' roll," he adds. "I mean, you can listen to the lyrics, you can really get into it, just as you could get into 'Stairway to Heaven.'" Watch video of the duet performance from the show here.
