Dallas, TX – Steven Tyler of Aerosmith fame brought his “Out On A Limb” solo tour to the Music Hall at Fair Park Monday night. Tyler first talked a little over a year ago of doing a solo country album and tour and this show was a mixture of country and rock. While some diehard Aerosmith fans may have gone into shock, Tyler said the country was always there. His Nashville album release We’re All Somebody From Somewhere dropped July 15th, debuting at number one on the Billboard Country chart. There is certainly nothing like a number one to silence the critics.
Tyler opened Monday’s show with a couple of Aerosmith classics “Sweet Emotion” and “Cryin”. With a dash of front porch country flair, violin and steel guitar, his music sounded very familiar and similar to any other Aerosmith performance. The show is a trip down memory lane with Tyler recalling his favorite childhood and young adult influences. According to Tyler, The Everly Brothers are what attracted him to music at a very young age. He also speaks of his favorite hippie and love for Janis Joplin and then goes into singing her hit “Piece of my heart”.Those who came Monday to see Steven Tyler the rocker were certainly not dissapointed. Not only did he play nine of the most popular Aerosmith songs, he also played some classics from Fleetwood Mac & The Beatles. Tyler’s recent country hit “Love is your Name” co-written by Eric Paslay was also very well received by the crowd. Overall, the show was a great evening of music and entertainment that was a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll.
