Steven Tyler is best known as the lead singer of Aerosmith. In Aerosmith, he not only sings, but plays the harmonica, piano, and percussion. He’s known for his high-energy performances — and his high-energy outfits.
But the “Demon of Screamin’” is breaking new ground into a new genre. He hasn’t quite traded his long locks for a cowboy hat, but he is trying to break into country music.
The country music community tends to be insular — and suspicious of those without the “country cred.” So it seems unlikely that a rock star, who was born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx and Yonkers, would cut it.
That didn’t stop Steven though. He recently released his debut country single “Love is Your Name” and you’ll never believe who stepped up to support him.
She is a multiple gold album country music singer-songwriter. She’s written more than 160 songs and released 60 albums — selling 43 million records. She has ten Number 1 albums, and sixteen Number 1 singles.
She’s won Grammy’s and virtually every other music awards. In 2013, even President Barack Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She is … Miss Loretta Lynn. And she is welcoming Steven Tyler into country music with open arms.
Her endorsement should make a big impact on his career. It has been liked by more than 28,000 people and shared more than 30,500 times. So far, the comments have been mixed. The most popular one reads, “Yep, not too bad for a rock singer, but I think we need to stick with rock as rock as country as country.”

Seems like Loretta Lynn disagrees! SHARE the love and pass it on!
