Rock icon-turned-country artist Steven Tyler will perform on the August 4 episode of NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon".The AEROSMITH frontman's debut solo album, "We're All Somebody From Somewhere", recently entered Billboard's Top Country Albums chart at No. 1 with first-week sales of 17,000 copies, according to Nielsen Music. On the all-genre, consumption-based Billboard 200, it started at No. 19, with 18,000 equivalent album units. "We're All Somebody From Somewhere" arived on July 15 via Big Machine Label Group's Dot Records. Tyler appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and spoke about the album, explaining: "I headed down to Nashville last spring to start working on this project, wrote some kick-ass songs with some of Music City's finest songwriters." He added: "Country music is the new rock 'n' roll. It's not just about porches, dogs and kicking your boots up. It's a whole lot more. It's about being real." Tyler co-produced "We're All Somebody From Somewhere" with such heavyweights as T Bone Burnett, Dan Huff, Marti Fredriksen and Jaren Johnston. Tyler spoke about the strength of the new material, telling Rolling Stone: "I believe y'all are gonna listen to this stuff and you're gonna agree with me that it fell from a star. I had nothing to do with this shit, it's just Nashville. There's something so magical about this town and me writing with all these people."
