"Love Is Your Name", the new solo single from AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler, will be premiered on the season finale of "American Idol" on May 13.Tyler's first solo album will be released later this year on Big Machine Label Group's Dot Records imprint. Headed by Scott Borchetta, the label group consists of Big Machine Records, the Valory Music Co., Republic Nashville, Nash Icon and Dot. "There was an immediate connection with Scott and Big Machine, and Nashville seems like the perfect segue for a solo project … and Dot Records is the right fit," Tyler said in a statement. "My earliest influences put me somewhere between the EVERLY BROTHERS and the CARTER FAMILY, and this project is all about me paying homage to my country roots. "I've been working with some fucking epic Nashville songwriters, getting my feet wet with their style and groove." Added Borchetta in a statement: "I have never met a more passionate human being than Steven. When he goes in, he goes all in, which is the culture of Dot Records and the Big Machine Label Group. I truly cannot wait for the world to hear the phenomenal music that he is creating, and I really feel that this chapter of his career will be among his best. He bleeds love, and he bleeds music." According to Billboard, Steven has been co-writing with Brett James, who co-wrote Carrie Underwood's "Cowboy Casanova" and "Jesus Take the Wheel", as well as Martina McBride's "Blessed"; CADILLAC THREE's Jaren Johnston, who co-wrote current hits as Keith Urban and Eric Church's "Raise 'Em Up" and Tim McGraw's recent No. 2 hit, "Meanwhile Back At Mama's". Tyler in October 2014 signed with Larry Rudolph and Rebecca Lambrecht of Rudolph's ReignDeer Entertainment (BRITNEY SPEARS, MILEY CYRUS) for management.
