    Steven Tyler gone Country

    WKLB Boston has been playing Steven Tylerís new song ďLove Is Your NameĒ as a country hit. I thought it was due to the Boston connection, but Mediabase shows several other Country stations adding it this past week. Itís actually debuting at #45 this week on the Country chart.

    Iím kind of surprised that this isnít on the Rock charts as a hit but with the formats so controlled now Iím not sure if it fits as Rock, Active Rock, or Adult Rock. Funny how this has all changedÖ

    With so few adult rock and active rock stations left, this may be the song's best chance to get significant airplay. CHR moved beyond "dinosaur rock" acts like Tyler, for better or worse, years ago. Although country radio is youth-obsessed as well. Garth Brooks created a lot of buzz among fans with his comeback announcement, but radio hasn't felt the same way, probably because the fans who got excited about it are no longer on the Madison Avenue-coveted side of 45.

    He's spent a lot of time "courting" the country audience from his time with Idol. Carrie has helped, but I think he's reached out to several major stars for input on the project.

    He also appeared on the ACM Awards and admitted to liking country music.

    So far I've heard it on the radio one time and WKSF of Asheville, NC is the station that gave it the spin. To me, the song is a good one and the way that Steven sings it is the best that I have ever heard from him so far, but of course with him sounding the way that he sounds, he is still a work in progress in my opinion.

    God bless you and him always!!!

    This shouldn't be a surprise. It was a rock-leaning CHR when Aerosmith was making their big comeback.

    The song has fallen off this week’s Country chart Top 50. That didn’t last very long.

    ^^^ It could re-enter. Plenty of songs have in the past.

    He also performed "Crazy" on ABC's "Nashville" with Juliette Barnes. So he can do country. Even the good kind.
