The critically-acclaimed music series “Front and Center” and the Country Music Association (CMA) had a special taping of the CMA Songwriters Series with Steven Tyler, the iconic songwriter and prolific voice of the best-selling American rock band Aerosmith Thursday night in New York City.
Tyler, who is set to release his first-ever Country album early next year, performed acoustically at the Melrose Ballroom for an exclusive “Front and Center” episode set to air in early 2016.
Joining him onstage were hit songwriters Nuno Bettencourt, Marti Frederiksen, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Lindsey Lee, and Eric Paslay. Tyler and his guests performed stripped-down versions of songs including his lead Country single “Love Is Your Name,” along with his mega-hits that have touched the lives of millions of music fans.
