The official video for AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler's first country single, "Love Is Your Name", has been watched more than seven million times on VEVO. In addition, the song has been streamed 1.9 million times and the video has been streamed 4.6 million times.
According to Nielsen Music, 73,000 digital copies of "Love Is Your Name" have been purchased thus far.
The "Love Is Your Name" clip was filmed just outside Nashville and was previewed on ABC's "Good Morning America" before it went live online. The track, written by Lindsey Lee and Eric Paslay, was aided by hourly plays on participating iHeartMedia stations in its first day of release (May 13); Tyler also performed the song that night on the season finale of Fox's "American Idol".
Tyler, who recently signed to Dot Records underneath the Big Machine Label Group umbrella (Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw), issued the single across multiple media properties and promoted the track with exclusive interviews.
Tyler revealed to USA Today that he won't get a chance to complete his solo album until after AEROSMITH finishes a two-month North American tour in August.
"I've got to find time to come back and record these songs after the AEROSMITH tour," Tyler said. "But I flit from flower to flower, country to country, looking for good times and singing about the last time. That's what I'm putting into the country songs."
"Love Is Your Name" was recorded at the famed Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Dann Huff.
In a statement Tyler said that, "The first day in the studio I recorded a song that became my first single, and if 'Love is Your Name' then Nashville's my new girlfriend. I guess you could call that Beginner's Luck."
