Steven Tyler’s First Country Music Video

Steven Tyler’s “Love Is Your Name” is the first country music release for the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Famer and the music video for the debut is pretty high-end country, but country nonetheless.

Country music may be new for Tyler, but he hasn’t lost his uniqe style or spirit as he’s embraced the new genre.

The video takes place in a field and the deck of a shack, as Tyler hangs with friends, just as diverse as the singer’s scarf collection. Tyler told People, “During the chorus, we had a big bonfire going. I burnt my eyebrows off, but it was worth it. We went through [the sequence] and the wind blew. The jacket I wore had little fur pieces on it and I could smell the burn on it. It blew the flames right at me!”

The “gypsy chic” video, as Tyler calls it, was shot just outside of Nashville’s city limits. “This video has so many personal elements in it for me. I came from a family that was a touring band. I grew up as a young boy with my pet raccoon and my slingshot. My real band Loving Mary is featured in the video,” explained Tyler. “This song and video both resemble what the album will sound like.”
