The world premiere of the new documentary film "Steven Tyler: Out On A Limb" opened the 49th annual Nashville Film Festival Thursday night, May 10. Prior to the premiere, Nashville mayor David Briley proclaimed the day "Steven Tyler Day" in Music City.
"Nashville is a key part of my musical journey and has had an influential place in my career, so this recognition from the city is a tremendous honor," said Tyler.
Tyler was joined at the premiere by his girlfriend Aimee Preston.
"Steven Tyler: Out On A Limb" is an intimate portrait of rock icon Steven Tyler as he embraces the challenges of shifting gears, both as a solo performer and in a new genre of music. Uncovering a side of Tyler many fans have never seen before, this inspiring story looks at the passion, drive and search for creative fulfillment that keeps artists pushing boundaries throughout their careers. Casey Tebo directed the documentary and also served as producer alongside Steven Tyler, Rebecca Warfield and Todd Thompson of Vermillion Entertainment, a Cross Creek Media company. Momentum Pictures will release the film on VOD and digital HD on May 15.
Tyler will perform with Nashville-based THE LOVING MARY band at The Woods at Fontanel on Saturday, May 12. This 4,500-seat natural outdoor amphitheater is rooted in music history as it is situated on the old estate of country music legend Barbara Mandrell.
